Lille vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 25th September 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).

The Friday night game in France will see Lille take on Nantes in what could be a very close game.

Lille have started the season well with no defeats in their first 4 games (2 wins and 2 draws). This means they come into this game in 5th place with 8 points and are just 2 points behind the current leaders Saint Etienne. The clubs last game ended in a 1-1 draw with Marseille.

At home Lille have beaten Metz and drawn with Rennes and they will be happy with their start so far.

Nantes on the other hand have not had a great start to their campaign and they come into this encounter in 14th place with 5 points. They have won just 1 game from their four so far which was against Nimes. They have no wins from their last two matches, with their latest game ending in a 2-2 draw at home to Saint Etienne which was seen as a decent result.

The Canaries have no wins as of yet on the road where they have lost against Monaco and drawn against Bordeaux.

Lille vs Nantes: Prediction

Lille will be the favourites but Nantes have proven whilst they do lack some quality they aren’t an easy team to beat. However we will back the home side to get the win.

We don’t expect there to be many goals and will also back under 2.5 and for some value we will look into the correct score result.

Lille have the motivation that if other results go their way they could in fact be top of the league this weekend but at worst maybe a top 3 place beckons for them.
