Lille vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th October 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille)
Despite selling some of their best players Lille are having another solid season so far and come into this game in 4th place with 14 points, just four points behind leaders PSG.
In the Champions League in midweek the club suffered disappointment as they lost at home to Chelsea 2-1 and their qualification hopes remain in the balance. However, in the league they are unbeaten in their last 4 games. Their last match ended in a 1-1 draw away to Nice which was respectable.
Lille has the 2nd best home record in the league and really it should be the best as they have played 4 games here and won 4. It is only virtue of the fact that Angers top the list as they have played one more game at home. Lille have scored 9 goals and conceded just two in front of their fans.
Nimes are back down in 15th place and have 8 points. The club started the season well enough and have won and drawn two games each, but recent form has dipped. They come here with back to back defeats where they lost against Montpellier and Saint Etienne.

Lille vs Nimes: Prediction
Lille have enjoyed great results over Nimes and whilst we think this game will be closer everything points to a home victory. Lille will have a lot of motivation and could well break into the top 3 with a win.
Loic Remy might be getting older but he is scoring goals for Lille and on form and we will be backing the 32-year-old to get on the score sheet in this game.
Lille has the quality to get a solid professional result and it would be a real surprise to see anything but a Lille victory here.
