Match Preview

Currently on a run of six straight home wins in Ligue 1 (L1), Lille have scored an average of 3.50 goals per game across that period. ‘Les Dogues’ have failed to score in just two of their last 14 L1 home outings, while registering a clean sheet in seven of the last ten!
Lille can take additional confidence from their recent efficiency in front of goal. This is quantified by the fact that 50% (five) of their ten shots on target were converted into goals in their opening two home fixtures – L1’s joint-third best rate.
Angers come into this one after a 6-0 trouncing away to Lyon in their away outing, making it two-straight away league losses ‘to-nil’. The fact that they have conceded as many goals (11) in these last two games as in their previous nine away L1 fixtures will surely concern manager Stéphane Moulin.
In addition, ‘Les Scoïstes’ have conceded first, and done so in the opening 15 minutes, in three of their last four league road trips. Furthermore, they also boast the league’s worst average possession rate so far this campaign (41%). However, the fact that Angers have lost just one of the eight top-flight H2Hs this decade (W5, D2, L1) could provide them with a psychological boost.
Players to watch: Lille striker Victor Osimhen is leading the L1 scorer standings with four goals so far – all of which came at home.
Angers’ current top scorer Farid El Melali has scored in each of his last two league games, but he is yet to score an away goal.
Stat attack: Lille have scored in both halves in 100% of their home league games this campaign – a league high.
Four of Angers’ last five L1 away fixtures have seen only one side score.
There have been two penalties, and one red card shown across the previous two league H2Hs.
