Match start: 17:00 (GMT+1)


After Marcelo Bielsa dismissal the results of the Great Danes have gradually improved. At least the team has managed to leave a relegation zone and now it is ahead of Angers with one point.

But you shouldn't stay calm as Lille has managed not to lose only in 4 games out of 11 last matches. At home the teams could gain only 4 points in matches against Nice (1:1) and Strasbourg (2:1). Marseille (0:1) and PSG (0:3) which have won over the Great Danes at their territory in the last 8 matches was unexpectedly joined also by Rennais (1:2).

During last match Lille Olympique was fighting till the last moment for a victory in away match against Nantes (2:2). Having managed to make a half of kicks on target the team of Galthié can own this result. Two key passes were made by the midfielder TiagoMendes.


Bruno Génésio’s team has lost three last meetings of the championship but surely won against Villarreal (3:1) that on 90% brought the team into the next circle of the Europa League.

Defeats had happened in away matches against Bordeaux (1:3) and Monaco (2:3) and also home match fight against Rennais (0:2). It is difficult to explain the great number of missed goals with other reasons except attack fascination.

On the other hand, only in one away match out of seven last the Kidshad made only one productive attack, just in match against Bordeaux. In other cases this fact guaranteed them a victory except for a strange meeting at Louis II.


The last away match against Lille had broken a series of 9 in a row of matches at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in which the guests didn't manage to win a victory. For 7 matches in a row the team is not able to score more than one goal.

Match prediction

We consider that if any team is going to break a prolonged series of defeats then it will be a match with such team as Lille. The Great Danes will gain their points in matches with opponents which are of similar class level. This quality had Saint-Étienne, the former team of Galthié. In a match against Lyon which is tired because of Euro cups fights, the owners have minimum chances to gain even a draw outcome.
