Reason For Nantes vs Lille Predictions

  • Lille have won four of their last five matches with nine goals scored and just three conceded in this time.
  • Nantes have also been fiery in the final third as of late with 16 goals netted in their last nine matches, however their defence has struggled with 14 conceded in this time.
  • Both teams have scored in the last four clashes between these sides with Lille winning the last three.

Lille Relying On Their Front Line As They Aim For Third

Lille got back in the race for third last week with a professional 3-0 win over Toulouse. Lille’s opponents sat well adrift at the bottom of Ligue 1 so les Dogues did well to not play with complacency. It was a much-needed win as Lille had lost a crucial game the week before to Marseille which set them a point behind Rennes in the battle for Champions League football. 

Despite this defeat, Lille have been in solid form and will be looking to keep it up against Nantes no matter the circumstances. They have won four of their last five matches with formidable opponents Rennes and Strasbourg being brushed past in the process. They’ve scored nine and conceded just three in this time so will be confident of keeping this good form going in Nantes. Lille have also won their last two games away from home and have won their last three clashes with Nantes.

Nantes’ Strong Attack Leaving Their Defence Out To Dry

The away team got a freak victory over 2nd place Marseille last week despite going into the match on a run of six games without a win. Nantes didn’t actually create loads of quality chances but they were very clinical in attack and this has been a trend for Christian Gourcuff’s men recently. Despite not winning many games, they have been impressive in the final third with 16 goals in their last nine games since the end of the winter break. 

Their real issue has been the defence as they have also conceded 14 goals in these nine matches. This has continued at the Stade de la Beaujoire with ten goals leaked in their last six home games. Five of these have ended in defeat with their draw against 16th place Metz the only reprieve in this time. 

Goals On The Cards?

Despite Lille’s improved defence as of late, they have just one clean sheet in their last four away games so we’re expecting the hosts to get on the scoresheet. Both teams have scored in the last four clashes between these teams so we’re expecting goals here but ultimately we see Lille coming away with the three points in a 2-1 win.
