On Sunday, August 20, 2023 Lille OSC will compete against Nantes in the Matchday 2 of the Ligue 1 match. Watch here, Lille OSC vs Nantes live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Lille will host Nantes at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium on Sunday, 20 August 2023, in a French Ligue 1 second round clash. Lille, the reigning champions, were hoping for their first win of the new season after being held to a 1-1 draw by Metz in their opener. Meanwhile, Nantes are looking for their first point after losing 1-2 to Toulouse at home.
Lille OSC has a huge advantage in record against Nantes. In the last 16 matches against Nantes in all competitions, Lille has never lost, with 11 wins and 5 draws. At home, Lille have only lost once in the last 18 matches against Nantes, with 14 wins and 3 draws.
Lille also has a fairly stable performance in the last 12 matches in all competitions, with 6 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. LOSC is unbeaten in the last 22 home matches in all competitions, and is unbeaten in the last 16 home matches in Ligue 1.
On the other hand, Nantes is in a difficult situation. Nantes have won just three of their last 20 matches in all competitions, and all of them were home wins. In the league, Nantes is winless in 15 of the last 16 matches. When playing away, Nantes is winless in the last 11 matches, with 5 draws and 6 losses.
Nantes also lost their main goalkeeper, Alban Lafont, due to a lung injury. Lafont was sidelined for two months and was replaced by Denis Petric. Apart from that, defender Jean-Charles Castelletto also cannot play because he is in the process of making a transfer to Trabzonspor.
The new coach of Nantes, Pierre Aristouy, will rely on striker Ludovic Blas to score goals for his team. Blas scored the opener for Nantes in their previous match against Toulouse, although his side eventually lost. Blas also scored for Nantes in the last game against Lille last season.
Meanwhile, Lille is also dealing with some injury problems ahead of this game. Lille could not play its four players, namely Mohamed Bayo, Samuel Umtiti, Adam Ounas and Tiago Djalo. Umtiti, the new defender from Barcelona, is the player who is most regretfully absent. He is still in the recovery process and has yet to make his debut for his new team.
To overcome this, coach Paulo Fonseca hopes that striker Jonathan David can perform brilliantly. David was the third top scorer in Ligue 1 last season with 24 goals, only losing to Alexandre Lacazette (27 goals) and Kylian Mbappe (29 goals).
Nevertheless, Lille is a stronger and more stable team than Nantes. It is estimated that Lille can win full points tonight.
