Here are our top free Lille vs Rijeka predictions ahead of the Thursday, 28th August 2023 clash:

Half-Time Lille

Lille have the advantage here and with an implied win probability of 80% with odds of 1.25, this should be an easy matchup for the Les Dogues. They have won their first game of the season at home in the domestic league, a 2-0 thrashing of Nantes in Ligue 1 days ago. A 10-man Lille held onto a 1-0 lead and added a second in the penultimate, so the significance of this game and the fact that the former Ligue 1 champions play at home means a lot for them.

Both Teams to Score

Even though Lille are our favourite to win this game, we expect to have goals on both sides. HNK Rijeka have now won 5 competitive matches in a row. With the good run of form and also factoring in the significance of this clash, we expect the visitors to score at least once in this game.

Over 2.5 Goals

In another Lille vs Rijeka prediction by Pundit Feed, we have settled on a goal-fest on matchday. The probability of over 2.5 goals in this game is 60.24%, so with BTTS and Lille win as other predictions for this game, we think at least 3 goals in this Europa Conference League playoffs is a very likely outcome.
