Olympique Lyon against Lille is the first game to feature here, which is a battle of eighth against sixth in the standings.
Lyon managed to get a 2-1 win over Montpellier last time out, ending a four-game winless run. Prior to this, Olympique had lost three of their last four matches following 1-0 losses to both Lens and PSG, as well as 3-2 away at Rennes. The anomaly in the aforementioned sequence of matches was their 1-1 home draw with Toulouse.
Lille looks to have found some consistency of late, following four wins in their last five matches. Since their 2-1 win over Toulouse on 17th September, they have gone on to lose 2-1 to high-flying Lorient, before beating Lens 1-0, Strasbourg 3-0 and AS Monaco 4-3, with ex-Newcastle man Remy Cabella scoring a brace in the latter mentioned match.
