After being held to a frustrating draw away at Marseille over the weekend, Lille target their third Ligue 1 win of the campaign when hosting Nantes on Friday evening.

Christian Gourcuff's side have just one victory to start the new campaign and have struggled in 2020 as a whole. They displayed resiliency to battle back from two goals down to draw against Saint-Etienne last Sunday, but shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with.

It's important they start well as Lille boast a far superior H2H record (12 wins, five draws, one defeat) – their only win in this fixture was five years ago. How will they fare on this occasion? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Lille vs Nantes Betting Tips

After back-to-back 1-0 victories against Stade de Reims and Metz, Lille's narrow winning ways were cut short last weekend. They conceded from a corner with five minutes to play, as Morgan Sanson's delivery was headed home by inspired substitute Valére Germain.

It was his first top-flight goal for 364 days, funnily enough, and the second time this term Lille have conceded from a set-piece. Following two clean sheets in the aforementioned wins, this was a sobering experience which they'll look to get over quickly.

Nantes present a winnable fixture on paper, especially given their inconsistent form, but they too are determined to right their recent wrongs this weekend. Having conceded five goals in their last three matches, Friday's visitors aren't exactly well-placed to expect a positive result away at the Stade Pierre Mauroy here.

As mentioned, their H2H record is a troubling one and they lack consistent performers in the final third. Ludovic Blas and Moses Simon are among their best, but are also unpredictable at the best of times. How will they break down a Lille backline that seem to switch off at set-pieces?

Lille vs Nantes Correct Score Predictions

When you consider the aforementioned H2H record, it's difficult to bet against Lille winning. They have done in each of their last four meetings and are usually capable of stifling Nantes' creativity. So, I'm leaning towards a narrow home win here.
