THE PREDICTION

In what should be the Top 14 fixture of the weekend Lyon, with two games in-hand over many teams above them in the table, will host the current league leaders La Rochelle. Lyon are arguably the form team of the Top 14 right now on a streak of six unbeaten games, with one draw and five wins extended by their close-run 20-19 victory over a good Stade Francais side on Sunday. The hosts will fancy their chances in this match and will note that La Rochelle have been within 14 points of their last two opponents, and additionally that they lost their last away match to Stade Francais. This should not go as easily as some of the markets suggest and Lyon could exact a changing of the guard at the top of the table here by covering -5 or simply winning a match that goes under 40 points.
