Teams Comparison.

Currently on an outstanding run of eight straight home victories in Ligue 1 (L1), Lille have scored an average of 3.13 goals per game across that period. In fact, ‘Le LOSC’ have failed to score in just three of their last 26 L1 home outings, whilst registering a clean sheet in five of the last seven! The hosts can take additional confidence from their recent efficiency in front of goal. This is seen by the fact that 47.37% (nine) of their 19 shots on target were converted into goals in their opening four L1 home fixtures, which constitutes the division’s third-highest ratio.

For their part, Nîmes travel to Lille after claiming only one win across their last 11 top-flight away fixtures (W1, D3, L7), and the fact that they’ve failed to score in three of their last four will surely concern coach Bernard Blaquart. Not one for starting games quickly, ‘Les Crocodiles’ have a habit of conceding first on the road, doing so in 11 of their previous 14 L1 away fixtures, returning a record of: D3, L8, thereafter. However, if they find a return to winning ways here, it will likely be an entertaining game as five of Nîmes’ last six L1 away victories have featured over 2.5 goals.

Quick Facts.
