Venue: Grand Stade Lille Métropole


Team Form


Lille’s form continues to struggle, most especially after the frustrating loss against Nice. The defeat was Les Dogues’ third in their last six (6) matches.


A closer look into Lille’s overall team form readily shows that they have only won once during their last 6 encounters. It is for this reason that the club has failed to join in the title bid this season.


Although it is impossible for them to be relegated, the constant mishaps in the pitch might force them out of the top three (3).



Sochaux takes the momentum with them when they visit Lille in their upcoming match. The Les Lionceaux just came off from a crucial win against the strong Nantes. The club hopes that such impressive performance continues as they fight for their survival this season.


Sochaux shocked Nantes when they took an early lead and eventually, won the match. Stoppila Sunzu served as the match’s hero.


In terms of their overall form, the club’s recent performance is quite satisfactory. They have won twice in their last six (6) matches, lost thrice and forced a draw against Ajaccio. Evidently, this is barely enough to get them out of the relegation zone. But then again, the victory against Nantes can be a great starting point.


Prediction:  Lille

Indeed, it is true that Lille’s current form suffers. But this is also experienced by Sochaux. As a matter of fact, the latter was unable to secure a single victory in its last thirteen (13) away matches. Apparently, this will be Lille’s main advantage over their opponents and it is less likely for them to surrender in this encounter.
