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.


  • Lyon is in a series of two victories, but before this period, they had three consecutive defeats in all competitions. We saw over 2.5 goals in their last five games in all competitions. Lyon scored at least one goal in their last eleven matches.
  • Lille is in a series of five matches without a defeat in the league. Lille scored 13 goals during that period. In their last two matches on the road, they recorded two draws.


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.

Lille is having a great season and they practically secured the place in Champions League already. They need to stay undefeated against Lyon and it is hard to expect they can lose six points advantage over Saint Etienne and Lyon until the end, even if those teams win all their remaining matches.
