Lille v Olympique Lyonnais – Friday 19:45, BT Sport ESPN
Beset by injury woes and stuck fast in the relegation zone, Lille welcome an inconsistent Lyon side to northern France. Just four points separate the teams between fourth and tenth place in Ligue 1, and Lyon need to improve if they wish to stay within touching distance.
Lyon have been lacklustre this season, and although they’ve not lost in their last three games across all competitions, they’ve not looked particularly impressive, while taking just seven points from a possible 18 in away fixtures this term. The absence of Christophe Jallet, Maciej Rybus and Nabil Fekir will cause a selection headache for gaffer Bruno Genesio, and he will lean heavily on Alexandre Lacazette up top, who has four in his last three games.
Frederic Antonetti faces similar selection difficulties: his attacking options have been curtailed by the loss of Eric Bautheac, Junior Tallo and Ryan Mendes to injury, so they look set to score fewer than two goals for the eight time in nine at home. Scores have been level at half-time in seven of Lille’s last eight home games (and in four of Lyon’s six away this season), and three of the last six competitive matches between these sides have been drawn, so we like Draw/Draw in the Half-Time/Full-Time market.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
