Nantes vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 7th February 2021
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.

It’s been a difficult season for Nantes so far as they try to avoid slipping into the bottom three and now they will have to entertain the team on top Lille.

Nantes are presently in 17th place with 19 points and only goal difference is stopping the club from being in the bottom three. In midweek they managed to draw 1-1 with Saint Etienne and have only earned 3 points in their last 15.

With just 3 wins so far this season Nantes have no wins at all home and away for over 2 months and at home they have won just 2 games. Nantes most popular result at home is the draw which has happened in 60% of their games.

It’s February and Lille are still top can they hang on? Lille has 51 points and they are 2 points clear of second placed Lyon. Lille are the best in form side in the league and in midweek they won their 15th game of the season as they beat Bordeaux 3-0.

With 24 points won from a possible 33 on the road Lille has the near perfect record and have lost just once and have the 2nd best away record in the league.

Nantes vs Lille: Head to Head

  • Lille won this fixture last season 1-0.
  • Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Lille won 2-0.
  • Lille has won the last 5 league meetings against Nantes in a row.
  • Nantes have not beaten Lille when at home since 2007 and even then it was a cup match.

Nantes vs Lille: Prediction

Of course Lille will be the favourites to win but what also backs up their claims here is their incredible run over Nantes at this ground where Nantes have no wins in any competition against them for 14 years.

Nantes confidence is low and we do not expect to see a surprise result here, but Nantes rarely lose by a big score and have defended well and made the better opposition teams really work hard.

Lille considering they are in 1st place and have a good history over Nantes are a very good price to win this game even if they are odds on and we will take that for the away side to get all three points.

Nantes vs Lille Bet Tips:

  • Lille to beat Nantes at 1.80 (4/5)
  • Correct Score: Lille to win 1-0 or 2-1 at 6.00 (5/1) and 8.00 (7/1).
