The LYN vs LIL Dream11 match preview –

In one of the high-profile games in Ligue 1, third-placed Olympique Lyonnais host 2nd-placed Lille OSC at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, in Décines-Charpieu, in the Lyon Metropolis.

Keeping up the pace with the mighty Paris Saint-Germain is a hard task for any team playing in the Ligue 1. As soon as the 2018-19 campaign started, the title looked to be heading only in one direction. There was never a doubt about that, as even before the winter break, the Parisians were more than 15 points adrift at the top of the table.

That’s enough to out off any challenger and that’s what happened. In fact, there was no challenge, with the teams fighting only for the realistic targets.

For both Lyon and Lille, that achievable target was the second place.

As things stand, Lyon are sitting at 3rd on the table having accumulated 62 points from 38 games, while their opponents are 2nd with a six points gap over their rivals.
