Ligue 1 2022-23
Nantes are heading into the weekend on a three-game losing streak in all competitions and will be looking to end this dry period.
The team was denied a dream start in their 2022-23 Ligue 1 campaign as Angers took them to a (0-0) draw last Sunday.
This followed a (0-4) thrashing by Paris Saint-Germain in the French Super Cup final on 31 July.
Nantes have failed to win in any of their last three games in all competitions, drawing once and losing twice since their (2-1) friendly win over Lorient in July.
LOSC Lille, on the other hand, got off to a good start to their domestic campaign when they brushed off the recently promoted AJ Auxerre (4-1) last time.
This followed a pre-season streak in which they recorded two wins and one draw in four friendlies.
Lille are coming into the weekend without a win in all but one of their last four away games in the league – losing twice and claiming one draw – and will be looking to end that period.
- Lille have been imperious in the history of this fixture, picking up 22 wins from the last 38 meetings between the sides.
- Nantes have failed to win any of their last three games across all competitions, picking up one draw and losing twice in that time.
- Lille are currently on a 14-game unbeaten run against this weekend’s hosts, claiming 11 wins and three draws since a (0-1) loss in September 2015.
|Nantes win 3.03||Draw 3.52||Lille win 2.48|
Lille will ensure their chances of maintaining a perfect start to the season as they face an opponent against whom they have not lost in 14 straight games since 2015.
We predict an interesting fight, and the guests will do enough to leave with all three points.
Prediction for this match: Lille win at 2.58.
