Caen vs Lille PREVIEW & PREDICTION 11/01/2019

On Friday, at 18:00, Caen will receive Lille’s visit in a match for the 20th round of Ligue 1. The match will take place at Stade Michel d’Ornano in Caen.

By finishing 2018 on a laudable spot in Ligue 1, Lille is no longer a pleasant surprise or an “accident” this season of Ligue 1. The band of Cristophe Galtier has recorded remarkable results throughout the entire season, and the position occupied in the hierarchy is not accidental. On the other side, Caen is a sure candidate to avoid relegation. Although they lost one match in the previous five rounds, the Caen players remain with a deserved line-up, showing a total of 3 wins in 19 matches and a worrying 16, for which they will work at least at as much as ever before to keep up the line until the end of the championship.

In the last ten direct confrontations between the two bands, Lille forced himself nine times, while Caen won a single duel;

In three of the previous four direct disputes, Lille scored the same score: 1-0;

Caen‘s last success at home in front of the Lille dates back to October 2007 from a 1-0;

Probable teams:

Caen (4-2-3-1): Samba- Guilbet, Baysse, Djiku, Armougom- Diomande, Fajr-Beauvue, Khaoui, Ninga- Bammou

Lille (4-2-3-1): Maignan-Celik, Fonte, Soumaoro, Kone-Mendes, Maia-Pepe, Ikone, Bamba, Leao

Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a solid evolution of our guests. Considering the constant play of the two combatants, we think Lille will show the maturity and solidity in the game that he showed in the first part of the season and will not fall prey to a mediocre band.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1.80
