Lille must ensure they pick up all three points to try and keep pace with Brest who occupy the third and final Champions League spot. For Nantes, they're just four points above Metz in the relegation play-off spot, so defeat this weekend could be catastrophic.

Last five H2Hs: Don't expect fireworks

These two sides have only managed to score 10 goals between them across the last five meetings, so this could well be yet another low-scoring affair. Both Nantes and Lille will be wary of what could happen if they lose this match, so may well throw caution into the wind.

Nantes preview: Perfect time for an upset

While Nantes have lost just two of their last six games giving them a buffer to the bottom three, they are still in real danger of going down picking up just two points from their last three fixtures. Their home form is way more alarming than anything else having not won in front of their fans since December 2nd.

Predicted lineup: Lafont (GK) – Comert, Castelletto, Pallois – Duverne, Sissoko, Chirivella, Coco – Abline, Mohamed, Traore

Lille preview: European qualification is in their hands

While Lille are the favourites they are on a shaky run of form and away from home they are like a different side. Les Dogues have only won four away games in Ligue 1 all season, so they will be aware of their flaws on the road in such an important game.

Predicted lineup: Chevalier (GK) – Ismaily, Yoro, Diakite, Santos – Gomes, Bentaleb – Cabella, Haraldsson, Zhegrova – David

Lille's Jonathan David

Player to watch: Jonathan David

Lille's stand-in captain, David, is currently on a run of three league games without a goal which will be worrying although he does have two assists which will make up for it slightly.

David to fire Lille into fire?

The Canadian International has 17 goals in Ligue 1 this term which is the second-best in the competition, but with just two games left to play, Lille will be relying on their talisman to fire them into Europe, and potentially the Champions League.
