Lyon vs Lille

Lyon

Olympique Lyonnais at the moment stands at 7th place with 22 points after 15 rounds. This is far from their best football but this season in Ligue 1 we can see very strong competition even between middle-class teams. They had a very difficult start of the season, however, gained a great form so far and faced only 1 defeat in the last 5 Ligue 1 matches. Moreover, they have all the chances to finish 2nd in Champions League group G, where they stand at 3rd line with same points as Zenit Petersburg.

The last CL game will be against RB Leipzig, which already qualified to Playoffs and have nothing to lose. In the last match, Lyon showed very solid character and won over the Strasbourg, even being behind after Fofana scored a goal at 22nd minute. This is a great achievement for a team which obviously fighting for the top places in French Ligue 1.

Lille

Lille this season is absolutely home team, as they collected 20 points playing at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, in Villeneuve d’Ascq and stand at 1st place by this indicator. Unfortunately, they are last by gained points in away matches – 2 points after 7 games. They also participate in Champions League this season after great last year results. However, their abilities aren’t enough to compete with teams like Ajax, Valencia and Chelsea. They stand at the last place and already lost chances to qualify even to UEFA Europa League as they have 1 point after 5 games. During the closing round, they will play against London Chelsea, in London, which should be extremely motivated to take 3 most important points so far this season.
