    Thursday.

    According to the question one of them is lying other is saying truth.or both of them saying truth(Sunday).

    Now suppose Lion is saying truth unicorn is lying.

    Lion saying that it was lying yesterday. and this statement  become truth only  in Thursday.

    and unicorn is lying.

    Now Suppose lion is saying lie and unicorn truth.

    unicorn says that it is lying yesterday too.But it become truth only in Sundays .But in Sundays lion also says truth so both lion and unicorn statement cannot hold on that day so this condition does not occur.

    So only possible solution is Thursday.
