Match begins: 16:00 (UTC)
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (50186 seats)

Creeping up on the top sides is the target when these two mid-table sides meet. Both will be aiming to strenghten their league table standing, Lille in 12th and Nantes in 11th position.

Insights:
  • All of Lille's home-matches have had more than 1,5 goals.
  • Nantes have failed to keep a clean sheet in all their away matches.

These are busy days for the host team, as they had a game only four days ago in the Champions League. Thankfully the previous game, versus Salzburg, was also a home game here at Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The away team is better rested.

Lille form and stats

3 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. That’s what Lille have to build on here at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in the Ligue 1. Their last two home games have resulted in two points, meaning they were both draws.

Lille's previous game was a Champions League match also played at home, ending 1-0 versus Salzburg. The home side are looking to build on that result. Reinildo Isnard Mandava, defender, was given a rating of 8.14/10 in that game, top of the team. Mandava won 16 of 18 duels.

Preceding that game was the away draw at Monaco that finished 2-2.

The manager J. Gourvennec will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Rennes in only four days.

The Lille fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 8 in 6 matches. On the other hand, Lille have conceded 8 goals.

Nantes form and stats

Nantes have only collected 5 points from their away games in the Ligue 1, after 1-2-4 (7 played). With two straight losses from their last two away games, Nantes are hoping that it's time for some travel points again.

There might be some fixture complaints from Nantes as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Ligue 1 match against PSG (1-3). Midfield player Pedro Chirivella was the top player of the team with a match rating of 7.14/10. Chirivella hit one key pass, dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 70 successful passes (of 77 total).

Preceding that match was the 2-2 draw at home vs Strasbourg.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Olympique Marseille in just four days.

Nantes have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 7 league away games 8 goals have been scored. Nantes's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 12 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

Previous ten meetings involving these squads: Lille won nine, Nantes triumphed in zero and we saw one draw. six games with over 2,5 goals, four matches with less than 2,5 goals.
