The Lyon vs. Lille match will be played on Sunday, May 5, at the Groupama Stadium, Lyon. Lyon is currently 3rd on the table with 62 points, while Lille is 2nd on the table with 68 points. This is the derby match of Ligue 1 35th round.
In their previous ten meetings, Lyon recorded two victories, Lille had four wins, while four matches ended in a draw. In their last four matches we saw over 2.5 goals. Lille is undefeated against Lyon in four consecutive games.
Lyon is in a fight for the place in Champions League. Marseille and Montpellier are seven and eight points away and it seems that Saint-Etienne, which is only three points away, is their only rival for the top three spot. Their goal difference is the same, so if Lyon lose this match they will be in a very difficult situation.
