Lyon went as the train just a few weeks ago when it was noted for eight straight wins on the runway in the league game. However, in connection with the loss of Bordeaux about three weeks ago, it broke down on the nice trend, and instead followed up the defeat with another two losses.
In front of Lille, Lyon is in fourth place in the table, and currently has eight points less than the league of Monaco. However, a match is less played and that means a victory on Sunday is of the utmost importance for the away team. Lyon can not afford to lose more matches in the future – known as fourth place Europa League game.
However, we saw many lights from Lyon’s side in the victory against Villarreal on Thursday. They won that match 3-1 in the end, and undoubtedly got a good starting position before the return in Spain. That victory also meant that Lyon broke its negative trend, and hopefully you can bring the result to Sunday’s league match as well.
Sunday’s resistance is the crisis for Lille for. A team that has experienced big problems this season, and, among other things, even kicking the coach Bielsa. However, it does not look too bright for the team anyway, Lille is in 16th place in the table, one point from the relegation line. The form is not the best either, as you have only been noted for two victories in the nine last matches – against the newcomer Strasbourg and Caen.
Lyon solves three sticks
We assume that Marseille is defeating Bordeaux on Sunday, and Lyon also needs to do – and in turn, do the job against Lille. There is not much left for the season, and it is especially now in spring Lyon needs to find the big form. We think we can do that.
Lyon can of course reach the Champions League game by winning the entire Europa League. We are convinced, however, that priority is given to the league game first and foremost. It is after all very good teams competing in this year’s edition of the Europa League. Therefore, Lyon should not count on winning the entire tournament.
Both Fekir and Depay ended up in the target record in the Villarreal meeting on Thursday, and we think that is an important factor. Both of them have gone speechless from three straight league matches, and obviously needed a small boost of self-esteem.
We find game value in the 1 × 2 market, and points the straight two to a nice 1.90 x slant. You can find the odds at Betway. Great luck at the back!
