Ligue 1 | Lille OSC VS Olympique Lyonnais; Tuesday, 07 May at 03:00 GMT +8

Lille is aiming for a repeat of their 1-2 Ligue 1 victory over FC Metz, where they had 71% possession and 14 attempts on goal. They scored goals by Ismaily and Yusuf Yazıcı. However, Lille has not shown defensive steel in recent games, failing to prevent opponents from scoring in five of their last six clashes. They have not been beaten by Lyon in their last two games and have been undefeated in their previous 12 league matches at home.

Lyon, having won a 3-2 Ligue 1 game against Monaco, will face Lille in a match involving Lyon and Lille. Lyon has 47% possession and 15 shots on goal, with goals scored by Alexandre Lacazette, Saïd Benrahma, and Malick Fofana. Monaco has 13 attempts at goal and 5 on target, with Wissam Ben Yedder scoring for Monaco. Lyon has celebrated 26 goals in the last six games, an average of 4.33 goals per fixture. However, it remains to be seen if this pattern will be maintained in this match. Lyon has not won against Lille in their last six league games away from home.

Lille and Lyon are both in strong form for the upcoming match in the Ligue 1 season. Lille, currently fourth in the division, is one point behind third-placed Brest, with the top three sides in France assured of direct entry into Europe’s premier competition. Despite a painful Europa Conference League exit, Lille has been in good form domestically, winning four of their last five matches and losing only one of their last eight. At the Decathlon Arnea, Fonesca’s men have been particularly strong, with wins in six of their last seven league matches. Lyon, under new boss Pierre Sage, has been rejuvenated after a disastrous start to the campaign, winning 12 of 17 Ligue 1 games. On the road, Lyon has been especially impressive, with five wins in their last six away matches. Both teams are expected to have an entertaining battle on Monday.
