Competition: French League Cup
Market: Lyon win
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Two sides looking to book their spot in the final of this year’s French League Cup, Lyon will host Lille on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a free-scoring run of of late, Lyon are enjoying arguably their brightest run of the campaign. In their 20 Ligue 1 matches this season, they have recorded eight wins, five draws, and seven defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 19 in return. Along with now being sat just three points adrift of climbing into the top-four, it should also be noted that they hold the third-best defensive record in France’s top-tier. As for their recent run of results, Lyon have won each of their last four matches across all formats, scoring at least a pair of goals in each of those victories. More impressive, Tuesday’s hosts have also landed back-to-back victories on the road.
As for the visitors, starting to show some recent Ligue 1 issues, Lille have also continued to show plenty of cause for concern on the road. In their 20 top-flight matches this season, they have recorded nine wins, four draws, and seven defeats, scoring 24 and conceding 22 in return. After being hit with back-to-back defeats against Ligue 1 opposition, Lille have also lost their top-four status. More worrying for Tuesday’s guests, they have also lost four of their last five Ligue 1 matches on the road and it should also be noted that they have won just one of their last 14 matches away at Ligue 1 opposition.
