The Lyon vs. Lille match will be played on Saturday, January 28, at the Olympic Lyon Park, Lyon. Lyon is currently 4th on the table with 37 points, while Lille is currently 14th with 23 points. In addition, Lyon has a game in hand in comparison to most of the teams in the league.


  • Lyon recorded 4  victories in their last 5 matches in all competitions. In addition, they were very efficient and scored 15 goals in those 5  games.
  • Lille recorded only one victory in their last 6 matches in all competitions. That victory came against Excelsior, the team in the French 6th league.


In their previous 10 meetings, Lyon recorded 3 victories, Lille recorded 3 victories as well, while 4 matches ended as a draw. In their last 3 games we saw under 2.5 goals and at least one team didn't score in each of those games.


Lyon has a game in hand and they are trailing by 11 points behind the current leader, Monaco. Of course, that's a huge margin, but if they continue playing like this in the next month or two, Lyon may even end up fighting for the Ligue 1 title! Of course, their primary goal is to finish in the top 3 and qualify for Champions League. They have some problems with injured players, Darder and Diakhaby won't be able to feature in the forthcoming match.

Lille is currently only two points above the relegation zone and they desperately need points. However, Lyon is in an amazing form currently and it will be hard for Lille to snatch a point from this match. In addition, they will host last-placed Lorient in the next week, so their focus will certainly be on that match. Lille are also having some problems with injured players - Mothiba, Terrier and Mavuba are unavailable for the forthcoming match.

Lyon is in a much better form at the moment. Lille will probably be happy with a draw and they will field up a defensive oriented team. However, with 15 goals scored in the last 5 matches, Lyon should have no problem to break the deadlock.
