Lille vs Nantes Match Preview
Just days after parting ways with manager Vahid Halilhodzic, Nantes travel to Lille to open their Ligue 1 campaign hoping to build a positive atmosphere regardless of an unpredictable pre-season run under a manager who is no more. They hardly have great records at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, though, and should be in for a tough task.
Lille have seen a very busy summer and some of their biggest stars leave in big-money transfers, with ten new signings led primarily by Trabzonspor’s Yusuf Yazici, Nigeria’s AFCON star Victor Osimhen, and PSG’s Timothy Weah. They have high hopes of building on last season’s success, though, and do so based on performances at this ground.
LOSC have seen losses to Celta Vigo (1-0) and Roma (2-3) late in their pre-season and while they’ve proven themselves very tough on both occasions, this gives them a lot to work on ahead of the new campaign. We expect them very motivated, though, and this could be enough against shaken up visitors.
Les Canaries have seen a 1-0 loss to Brest and a 2-0 win over Sporting Gijon beforehand, which does add to our statement of unpredictability. Interim Patrick Collot will have to pick up their team spirits and his men must look to capitalize on the rivals troubles in search of an upset.
However, we don’t see them making it happen and we’ll now rather back Lille to secure all three points, where a Home win looks like great value at 19/20 with Unibet and has caught the eye of many in the know already.
Indeed, we expect goals and LOSC could be forced into an exciting contest at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, as we now also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 11/8 with William Hill despite seeing them lose on their attacking prowess over the summer.
