Lille vs Nancy
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 1st October
Kick Off at 19:00 BST
Venue: Stade Pierre – Mauroy (Lille).
A 3-1 loss against St Etienne confined Lille to the bottom of Ligue 1 after losing their 4th game in a row. Coach Frederic Antonetti is into his 2nd and probably last season unless he can help turn this form around.
Ever since they lost 4-1 to Monaco at home the team has completely fallen apart and the chance to play Nancy at home could be the tonic they are looking for to get back to winning ways.
Nancy are 19th just a position above and have not won in 3 games where they beat Lorient since then they have tried to stabilize with two draws and they only lost 1-0 to leaders Nice.
The problem with Nancy is they don’t score goals- they have just 3 all season, if they keep this up they will score less than 20 goals this season which is a sure sign of relegation.
Lille vs Nancy: Head to Head Stats
Nancy has not won the last 6 fixture here and you have to go back to 2007 to see their last victory. The last two matches have been draws. It’s important to note that these two sides have not played each other for 3 years.
Lille vs Nancy: Prediction
Nancy just lacks so much quality and if they are to turn things around it will more than likely be at home. Lille has lost 2 games at home but they were to two quality teams in Monaco and Lille. They have always up to now scored at least a goal at home.
It’s hard not to think they can’t repeat this against Nancy and get another one to earn all three points. We can easily think of who can get a goal for Lille, but struggle when we think of Nancy. Dare we say home banker?
