📊 Form Guide
Their more recent scorelines show that it has been a great time for the Lille defence. Lille have kept it tight, seeing the total number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their previous six matches standing at 4. Even so, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be sustained here in this game.
Their past results show that Lille:
- have not been beaten in the league by Nantes in their last 14 games. A very long unbeaten run against them.
- are unbeaten in their previous 15 home league matches. Incredible, really.
Looking at their form, and Nantes have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 14 goals in all. At the back, Nantes seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Leading up to this clash, Nantes:
- are winless against Lille in games played away from home for the previous 6 league matches. They'll be keen to stop this run.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 6 matches in the league.
👥 Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 01/03/2020 tells us that these fixtures have been pretty painful for Nantes. They’ve not been able to come away with any wins at all while Lille have just been too good for them, running out winners in 67 per cent of those ties.
A combined sum of 10 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 8 from LOSC and 2 for Les Canaris. The average goals per game has been 1.67.
The last league clash featuring the two was Ligue 1 match day 2 on 12/08/2022 when the final score was Nantes 1-1 Lille.
That time, Nantes had 30% possession and 10 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. The scorer was Moses Simon (28').
Lille had 16 shots on goal with 5 on target. Ismaily (76') scored.
The referee was Bastien Dechepy.
We envisage that Lille are likely to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
However, Nantes will be up against it to score but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be scoring here as well.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable 3-1 victory for Lille at full-time.
