This season, Lille confidently held a group stage in the Champions League, which for the first time in recent years brought the team a ticket to the playoffs. In the first match of the spring stage of this tournament, the Mastiffs played against Chelsea in the capital of England, where they lost 0:2.
It should be noted that the team did not look worse in terms of statistics and was even better in some components in the game against Chelsea. The team’s start in the French Cup was unsuccessful, where Lille lost to Lance (2:3) in a penalty shootout. In League 1, Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men recorded 11 victories and nine peaceful outcomes in 27 rounds, bringing 42 points and seventh place. In the last two rounds, the hosts beat Lyon (1:0) and Clermont (4:0). Find out more today match prediction football as we always choose the most exciting matches for your attention.
This season, Saint-Etienne is not happy with the results and quality of the game – the team rarely gives meaningful matches, which affects the tournament position of the club. The start in the French Cup was unsuccessful, where the Saints passed the first stage, but in the second stage, they lost to the modest Bergerac (0:1). In the League 1 tournament, the team’s situation is not the best – in 27 rounds, Pascal Dupraz’s wards gained six victories and seven peaceful outcomes, which brought 25 points and 17th place in the standings.
The defence line looks awful, which has already marked the 50th anniversary of the missed goal of the season. In the last five rounds, the guests grabbed three victories, which allowed the Stephanois to leave the relegation zone. Following the defeat from Paris Saint-Germain (1:3), the Greens at home beat Mets (1:0). In our opinion, today, the guests have little chance. The current champion has seriously improved the game, and today they look very confident. Moreover, the statistics on the side of the Mastiffs and in the class of Red and Blue are much more powerful than the Saints, who only in the last month have released several successful games. Our prediction is the victory of Lille, which is offered with the odds of 1.81.
We assume that experience and class will come to the handicap, and victory can help the team enter the zone of European Cups, which will be an additional motivation. We expect the success of the favourite with a comfortable difference. The second bet is the victory of Lille in two goals for the odds of 5.15.
