Lyon will be aiming to maintain their position in the Ligue 1 table when they travel to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to face Lille on Saturday afternoon. Lille were beaten 2-0 on the road at Nice last weekend in a game in which they delivered just two shots on target. On the contrary, Lyon won 1-0 at home against Saint-Etienne thanks to a second-half goal from Jason Denayer. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Lille have been an amazing side throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, but they started to show signs of weakness of late. Les Dogues come into this tie on the back of a four-game winless streak across all competitions, losing three in the process. The positive fact is that Lille are now back on home soil where they are undefeated this season, winning six and drawing one of their seven league games.
Lyon, on the flip side, have been a tough nut to crack over the past month and a half, as they are currently on an eight-game unbeaten run across all competitions. They have won their most recent two league fixtures and followed this up with a 2-2 home draw against the Premier League reigning champions Manchester City in their Champions League midweek clash. Overall, they managed to collect four points from their two meetings with the English sides throughout this Champions League campaign.
Lyon are the in-form team here and we back them to grab all three points from this clash. Our betting tips and predictions would back Lyon to win at odds 2.60.

Lille is the team with the better head-to-head record in this tie, but their recent form in the league has been poor. They take on a Lyon side that are without defeat to their name in two months. Furthermore, the visitors have won their most recent two league trips and overall, have lost just once in their last seven away fixtures. Our preview expect Lyon to win at odds 2.60.

First Goalscorer odds
Maxwel Cornet has netted a brace against Manchester City in their Champions League midweek tie and we fancy him to carry on his form in Ligue 1 on Saturday. He has only scored once in eight league appearances so far this season, but he looked really great in midweek. Our first goalscorer prediction is Maxwel Cornet at odds 9.00.
