Lille vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 27th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille and Caen will meet on Saturday evening and it will be the home team who will start as easy favourites to win this game. Lille have been in brilliant form and have surpassed any early season expectations.
They are in 2nd place and even though they are 8 points behind PSG, they have impressed with some fantastic results and are 3 points clear of 3rd place Montpellier.
As you would expect form is very good with 3 wins in a row and they have lost just 1 game in their past six matches. At Stade Pierre-Mauroy they have a 100% record, played 5 matches and won 5. They are scoring almost 3 goals a game and have only conceded 3 goals
Caen are in 12th place and have had an average start to the season but recent form has not been good with just 1 win in their past five matches. They have lost recently against Marseille and drawn last weekend against Guingamp the bottom club and they were at home in a match that finished 0-0.
Lille vs Caen: Head to Head
- Last season Caen won this fixture 2-0, this was their only win at Lille in the last 15 years.
- 5 of the last 8 meetings have finished with the correct score of 1-0. Lille won them all.
- The last 3 meetings have seen both teams NOT to score.
Lille vs Caen: Prediction
Lille have a superb record against Caen, and this would be one of the biggest shocks in Ligue 1 not to see them get the win. They are odds on to do so, but almost just decent especially if we want to add them to an accumulator.
Lille are playing very good football and if they are going to drop some points we believe it will be away from home not at it where they have a magnificent record.
