Few Goals Expected in the Final Game of the Season

While we would expect a fanfare fixture on the last day of the season, we are backing a low scoring ourcome when Lille travels to Angers on Sunday. Lille is in the best position to claim a prize but defeating Angers on the road will be a tall order. So, we will go with a tough fixture for the visitors that will yield only a few goals. Lille lost the reverse fixture, and Christophe Galtier should rule out a smooth sail through against a team that defeated his side 2-1 at the start of the season. Something even more noteworthy is that Lille has won only once at Stade Raymond Kopa in previous five trips.

Burak Yilmaz to Score

Burak Yilmaz failed to score last weekend, only managing a single shot on target and creating one big chance against Saint-Etienne. However, we expect Lille’s top scorer to find the net against Angers on Sunday. Burak Yilmaz has 15 goals and 5 assists in 36 games. He has netted five goals in the last four games, four of which account for a brace The Turkish international was on target in the reverse fixture, and there is no doubt he would fancy another goal against Angers on the last day of the season.

More Goals in Second Half

We are also predicting more goals in the second half. Given that Lille lost in the reverse fixture, the hosts will be no pushover as they look for a double against the title contenders. With that in mind, a tense last game of the season should go down to the wire in the second half.

Match Preview: Can Lille Prevent a Second Defeat to Angers this season?

This fixture comes with some nostalgia for the hosts who won the reverse fixture despite keeping only 34% ball possession. However, Angers had the most tackles, interceptions and clearances, thanks to a solid defense. But can they repeat a similar feat against a supercharged Lille?

Angers

Victory in the first leg gives Angers some belief of getting another good result against Lille in the last fixture of the game. The hosts have only lost once at home to Lille. However, six defeats and a draw to Lille’s manager in 10 meetings should keep Stephane Moulin and his squad busy before Sunday. Some would say Angers rode on luck in the first leg but don’t forget that everything seems to go wrong for the visitors when they visit Stade Raymond Kopa. Angers has won three and drawn one of their last five home games against Lille.

Lille

After 151 games in charge, winning 77, drawing 31 and losing 43, Christopher Galtier stares at the opportunity of handing his side Ligue 1 title. The visitors last won the title in 2010/11 and were runners up in 2018/19. An incredible run, bagging important wins against tough opponents is why Lille should be confident about denying Angers double victory this season. Lille’s top scorers Burak Yilmaz (15 goals) and Jonathan David should be updated for a match that could go in their favour.
