Lille to edge a thriller against Les Merlus

There have been plenty of goals at both ends in Lille’s first four matches this season and we expect more of the same when the defending Ligue 1 champions take on Lorient at Stade Yves Allainmat this Friday night.

This looks a potentially cracking opener to the weekend’s top flight action in France, and Lille will be hoping to build upon their battling 2-1 victory over Montpellier last time out.

That marked Lille’s first success of the season, and as anticipated, things haven’t exactly been plain-sailing for Les Dogues following the departure of former boss Christophe Galtier and several key playing personnel over the summer.

Lille have largely retained their spark in attack with six goals fired thus far, but defensively they’ve been a mess, shipping nine overall including four in their crushing home defeat to Nice on Matchday 2.

Three of the visitors’ first four games have seen both teams score as a result and we think that’s the best bet for Friday’s encounter, with both sides also registering in three of Lorient’s opening four outings.

The hosts began the campaign in tidy fashion with a 1-1 draw at St Etienne and 1-0 triumph at home to Monaco, but their last two fixtures have been end-to-end affairs, with Les Merlus scoring three and conceding five.

We could well see a ton of goals as a result at Stade Yves Allainmat if the sides’ recent games are anything to go by, and correct score punters are encouraged to be bold by backing Lille to edge a thriller.
