Lyon vs Lille
Lyon will host Lille in a game from the French Ligue 1.
7th against the 8th team in the table. Both teams are playing in the French league+ CL matches, so they have busy schedules full of games. Lyon was terrible as a position in the league 5 rounds before, but went is a good form combined with a lot of wins. They are doing a very good job in their CL group being 2nd and have a chance to keep their place against Leipzig during the next week.
Lille is a very stable home team, but as visitors, the situation is totally opposite- they are the weakest travelers with just 2 draws and 5 losses. Maybe not expected by a team that plays in CL groups, but that's the facts. Their performance in CL is also not the best one with just 1 point and bottom place for sure.
Lyon will be without the suspended defender Marcal, Tatarusanu(GK), Leo Dubois(DF), while doubtful are Depay, Aouar and Thiago Mendes. For the visitors injured are Soumaoro, Reinildo and Weah.
If we look at both teams' H2H stats, we can see these two teams love to score goals to each other- it's full of 2:2/2:1/1:1. Lyon finally found their scoring form as there was a period when it was hard for them to score even a goal at home(at the end of September and October), while Lille very often succeeded to score as visitors(5 of the last 6 away games). Everything points to a goal/goal in this game and that's maybe my pick of the day.
