LYON VS LILLE (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 05.05.2019

Lyon come into this game after two straight Ligue 1 (L1) victories, and have shown the ability to utterly dominate at home, having scored in both halves in nearly half (eight) of their 17 home league outings this season.
In turn, they have lost just three of their last 24 top-flight home matches (W17, D4, L3). However, they face problematic opposition for this one, having won just one of their last six H2H league meetings with Lille on home soil (W1, D2, L3).
Though unbeaten in their last ten away games in the top-flight (W7, D3), Lille aren’t impregnable in defence, having recorded just five clean sheets in their last 25 away league fixtures. As such, scoring first in this game could be vital for Lille, especially as they are unbeaten in the ten L1 away games in which they have scored the match opener (W8, D2).
On the flipside however, they have lost four of the five L1 away games in which they have conceded first this term (W1, L4). They are never without hope though, landing 39.11% (79) of their 202 L1 away goal attempts on target, which constitutes L1’s second-best ratio.
Players to watch: Lyon striker Moussa Dembélé has 13 league goals so far, though only five have arrived at home.
Meanwhile, Lille top scorer Nicolas Pépé has scored 20 league goals, with half coming after the 60th minute.
Stat attack: Lyon boast a league-high average of 7.59 shots on target per home game this season.
The visitors have conceded over half (nine) of their 17 away league goals beyond the 75th minute.
At all venues, the last three top-flight H2Hs have produced over 1.5 first-half goals.
