Match Preview

Currently on an outstanding run of 12 straight unbeaten Ligue 1 (L1) home games (W10, D2), Lille have scored an average of 2.58 goals per match across that period. Significantly, ‘Le LOSC’ have failed to score in just three of their last 20 top-flight home outings.
Solid at the back, Lille have recorded a clean sheet in four of their previous five league fixtures at Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Moreover, fans can expect a tight defensive display before the break, with Lille being one of just two L1 sides not to concede a goal at home in the opening 30 minutes this campaign.
Visitors Brest travel here after winning just one of their seven L1 away matches to date (W1, D2, L4). That is an unsurprising statistic though, considering that the visitors have conceded the division’s highest average number of shots on target per away game (7.0) so far.
Scoring first could be a game decider in any case, as Brest are winless in the five L1 away games in which they have conceded the opening goal (D1, L4). In fact, they may want to keep it tight late on, as over half (seven) of the 13 away league goals they have conceded so far have arrived beyond the hour mark.
Players to watch: Lille top league scorer Victor Osimhen has netted eight goals so far this L1 campaign – all of which came at home. Meanwhile, Irvin Cardona has scored each of his three L1 goals for Brest this season beyond the hour mark.
Stat attack: Lille have scored in both halves in 75% of their home league games this campaign – a league high.
Brest have conceded the opener within 30 minutes in four of their last six away league games.
Lille have led at both HT/FT in each of the last three L1 H2Hs held here.
