Match Preview

When Ligue 1 (L1) restarts, Caen’s attempt to steer clear of relegation will pitch them against Lille, a side they haven’t beaten in L1 at home since October 2007 (L7).
Only two points separate Caen from the bottom-three, having played a game extra. Concerns stem from the fact that they have won just one L1 game since the start of October (W1, D5, L5). Indeed, only bottom-placed Guingamp have won fewer games than Caen (three).
However, the hosts have drawn a league-high nine games and are unbeaten in three (W1, D2). Two of their three L1 wins this season have come at home (W2, D4, L3), but three losses in their last five (W1, D1, L3) is again a dampener.
The visitors have little hope of bridging the 13-point gap to leaders PSG, but an inconsistent run since the start of November (W2, D3, L3) and the shrinking deficit with the fifth-placed Saint-Etienne remain their concerns.
On the road, Lille have won their last two trips, but haven’t won three away games in a row since May 2016. Lille failed to score in four of their nine L1 trips this season, but kept just two clean sheets themselves.
Players to watch: Enzo Crivelli (CAE) has a goal and assist in his last two league games, while Nicolas Pepe (LIL) has four goals in his last five league games.
Stat attack: Eight of the last eleven H2Hs at Caen have seen under 1.5 goals, seven ended 1-0 either way.
Lille kept a first-half clean sheet in eight of the last ten L1 H2H matches.
Seven of Caen’s ten L1 home goals were scored in the second half.
Lille have conceded nine of their 11 L1 away goals after the break.
