Back Said Benrahma to hit the target for Lyon

Paul Higham has picked out a 4/15.00 Bet Builder treble for Lyon's trip to Lille with both sides chasing a spot in Europe...

Lille are making a flying run at Champions League football and can climb into third with a Monday night win over Lyon - but the visitors are in decent form themselves having gone from relegation candidates to European hopefuls.

Lille have won four of five, and Lyon have taken 16 points from a possible 21 and have a sniff at least of grabbing a spot in Europe.

The hosts have built their charge on defence, with only Nice letting in fewer goals in Ligue 1 but nobody being able to match just eight goals conceded at home.

We're looking at a tight one...

Leg 1: Under 2.5 goals

It's the outsider of the two at 5/42.25 on under 2.5 goals in Lille and that's because both these sides have had a solid run of overs.

But Lille still don't concede too many at home, and although Lyon bring a fine recent scoring run on the road, the hosts have the Champions League in sight.

So expect them to get back to basics and keep this one tight as a priority.

Leg 2: Said Benrahma 1+ shot on target

On loan from West Ham, Said Benrahma had a goal and assist against Monaco in his last game and has been increasing involved in Lyon's creativie output.

He's hit the target in five of his last seven games so we'll back Benrahma at 8/151.53 for another 1+ shot on target again.

Leg 3: Ernest Nuamah 1+ foul

Lyon's Ernest Nuamah did very well last game to give away seven (7!) fouls against Monaco but avoid being booked.

We can't expect that every week, but the Ghanaian is no stranger to giving fouls away as the leader in the squad this season.

He's had plenty of multiple foul games but we'll back Nuamah for 1+ foul at 8/151.53 after a run of giving a foul away in seven of his last eight.

Back under 2.5 goals, Benrahma 1+ shot on target, Nuamah 1+ foul @ 4/15.00
