This game brings the curtain down on what will be another spectacular weekend of Ligue 1 matches as sides battle for points at both ends of the charts. Here are our top Lyon v Lille betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
Lyon and Lille face-off from 8.00pm on Sunday evening and this is a fixture that is sure to attract a decent audience, both in the stadium and from armchair fans watching the live coverage around the world. Third hosts second and although neither have a chance of troubling leaders PSG, there’s pride at stake here, as well as bragging rights.
Lyon set-up looking to land a hat-trick after winning each of their last two and three of their five most recent outings. They are six points off their opponents in second place, meaning time is against them, but if they are able to get the desired result from this match it will make the last few games that bit more interesting. Bookies have Lyon as favourites to win and that isn’t a massive shock, but we don’t think there’s an awful lot of value in the 7/10 being offered by Bet365.
Visitors Worth a Punt
Win this and Lille will all but cement their place as the best of the rest in a season where PSG have, once again, run away with the prize. Lille have been impressive this season and if they are able to hold on to their position, they will end deserving of the silver medal. The visitors enjoy an unbeaten recent run and have won three and drawn two of their last five which has given followers plenty to shout about while followers of other clubs watch their men down tools for the season.
They were stunning when dealing out a 5-1 beating to PSG last month, a result no one saw coming and one that would’ve surprised even supporters of the victors. Suffering a bit of a hangover, they were then held to a goalless draw away to Toulouse before retuning to winning ways last time to beat Nimes 5-0. 10 goals scored in three games and only one conceded. The visitors look well worth a punt to turn the tables on bookies here and are an easy side to back at 19/5 with William Hill. That price is a good bit bigger than it should be and we will back it as a super single for interest stakes, enjoying the fixture knowing we have the value working in our favour.
