Lille vs Nantes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 20th May, 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille.

Lille are amongst the worst teams in Ligue 1 when it comes to games lost at 18, but it won’t matter one bit as they come into this game safe from relegation. The club has 43 points and will be looking to wrap up a final win at home to Nantes.

They come into this game though having lost their last 2 matches and their lack of goals this season has been the real underlining problem of their season. Just 37 means that only three other clubs have a worse record and two of those are in the bottom two. Lille will be counting themselves lucky.

Nantes on 51 points can’t finish any higher than their current position of 7th, which is brilliant considering their nightmare start to the season. Depending on results though they could drop to 9th place and will be eyeing getting something from this game. Form wise the club have been solid with just 1 loss from their past 4 matches.

Lille vs Nantes: Prediction

Another dead rubber game from this weekend but these are still two cautious sides with little quality. We will go for under 2.5 goals as our main bet, because the stat is superb and for small stakes we will hope to see more goals scored in the first half of this encounter.
