Lille vs St Etienne Match Preview
Lille host St Etienne for their mid-week Ligue 1 clash with a disappointing 1-0 loss at Amiens behind them, where the rivals felt dominant through most part of the match and Christophe Galtier’s men made just one shot on goal. They’ve seen a busy summer and now obviously have a lot to work on and little time to do so.
LOSC have a history of doing better at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, though, and the home win over Nantes (2-1) on the opening day of the campaign will give the crowd more to look forward to, despite coming narrowly through a brace from Victor Osimhen. They’ve been scoring goals here regularly and will now surely be very motivated to do so again.
St Etienne have, on the other hand, bagged four points in two outings early on as they bagged a 1-2 win at Dijon on Matchday 1 but were held off in a 1-1 home draw against Brest. Their defensive inconsistencies have thus proven costly and a late equalizer from Denis Bouanga saved a point over the weekend.
Les Verts could need more in Villeneuve d’Ascq and they hardly have a great history of getting positive results at this ground, having snatched just one win in 20 games – with 13 losses and six draws along the way. They have found the net on four of the last five trips here, which does promise an exciting occasion.
We will still back Lille to overcome the tough challenge and bag all three points, where a Home win comes at 11/10 with William Hill and looks great value despite their struggles in rather narrow occasions early in the new campaign.
We do hope to see goals between the sides once again and we’re backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at Evens with bet365, where St Etienne’s scoring and conceding goals as well as the sides’ history of exciting head-to-head clashes both feels like evidence for such a bet.
