Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365

With a spot in the final of this year’s French League Cup up for grabs in midweek, Lyon will welcome Lille to the Groupama Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, despite making a string of changes over the weekend, Lyon managed to pick up a stunning 4-3 victory away at Nantes and find the mood in their camp at a continued high. With their sights now firmly set on mounting a top-four charge after a sluggish start to the new campaign, Les Gones’ now find themselves in the midst of a four-match winning run and have a growing reputation for their performances in the final third. Led by the red-hot Moussa Dembélé who has now found the net in each of his last four matches on the bounce, Lyon have now bagged a remarkable 16 goals on their winning run. Also landing back-to-back victories at the Groupama Stadium, there is no doubt that Rudi Garcia’s men should be confident of extending their recent purple patch in midweek.

As for the visitors, while Lille might be coming along well in this year’s domestic cups, Christophe Galtier’s men have begun to show some recent worries against Ligue 1 opposition. Hit with back-to-back defeats, including a 5-1 hammering away at Monaco prior to the festive break, Les Dogues also have a growing reputation for their continued issues away from the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Losing four of their last five top-flight matches on their travels, Lille have remarkable picked up just a sole Ligue 1 away win since opening the 2019/2020 campaign. With Lille starting to show some cause for concern, we’re backing Tuesday’s hosts to come out on top in midweek.
