Lyon - Lille

PICK: Lyon 1st half AH -0,5 @2,13 SBO 4/10

Match between 4th and 14th placed team in French Ligue 1 will be played on Parc Olympique Lyonnais in eastern suburb of Lyon, Décines-Charpieu.

Lyon is coming to match after big win against Marseille and I believe that they will extend great atmosphere at the club with win against Lille. Except Diakhaby all players participated on todays training so there is no bigger problems with squad in their team. Depay who played little bit more than 10 minutes against OM could get more minutes this time. In my opinion he will be good reinforcement for OL. 

Lille is coming to match after 3 draws in row. They were behind as against St. Etienne as against Rennes and equalised in last 20 minutes, while match against Dijon ended without goals. Mavuba is still injured, and they are hardly competitive in midfield. It will be even harder against Lyon.

Lyon was already team with some really great individuals and with Depay, their squad is even stronger and wider. As mentioned many times this season, they are capable to create chance through the middle, through wing, with through balls, from direct and indirect set-pieces, and of course also from individual actions. Lille will probably try to play defensively and try to surprise Lyon with counter-attacks, but in my opinion OL possess too much of offensive quality and I expect them to score early in the match and than smartly drive it till the end of the match. Of course it's not all about attack with Lyon, but they are also pretty solid in defence. In my opinion Lopes is one of the best if not the best goalkeeper. After loss against Caen they bounced back well and I think that we'll see convincing win of home team.

HT: 0-1
