Backing Lille to win

Things have not gone too well for Nantes since they won the Coupe de France last season; they've played eight matches since then, with two wins, two draws and four losses. It's fair to point out that Nantes did not win any of their last three games; in fact, they did not score a single goal in those three games. On the other hand, Lille have enjoyed a good run of form recently; they are coming off a 4:1 win against Auxerre, and have lost just once in their last seven games. Also, Lille have dominated Nantes in recent years; they are unbeaten in their last 14 clashes with Nantes, with 11 wins and three draws. All things considered, Lille should take all the points here.

Going south of 2.5 goals

We've mentioned that Nantes failed to score in their last three games; as a result of their lack of goals, most of Nantes' games have been low-scoring games. In fact, five of Nantes' last six games went below the 2.5 goal mark, with three of their last five games going under 1.5. Moreover, Nantes and Lille have met a lot of times, and those encounters have mostly been on the low-scoring side. Considering all of the last five meetings between these two saw less than three goals scored, we shouldn't expect many goals here.

Lille to make it six points from six

This game could well be an interesting one. On one hand, these two sides shared near to identical records in Ligue 1 last season but, on the other, Lille are in better form and boss the head to head record. Given Nantes kicked off their season with a draw last week, the pressure is on them to go and win this game – will they?

Nantes followed their disappointing 4:0 loss in the French Super Cup with a goalless draw at Angers; they haven't enjoyed their best run of form recently, with just one win in their last seven matches. It's worth noting that Nantes have no wins, and no goals scored in their last three games; they'll hope to put an end to that unwanted streak today.

Nantes Predicted lineup – Lafont, Appiah, Girotto, Pallois, Coco, Sissoko, Chirivella, Merlin, Blas, Guessand, Simon

Lille kick-started their Ligue 1 campaign with a comfortable 4:1 win against newly-promoted Auxerre; they've done fairly well over the past couple of months, losing just once in their last seven matches. Lille will pay a visit to the Stade de la Beaujoire for their first road game of the season; they'll fancy their chances against an out-of-form Nantes side.

Lille Predicted lineup – Jardim, Zedadka, Fonte, Ribeiro, Djaló, André, Gomes, David, Cabella, Bamba, Bayo
