Jonathan David to Score Anytime

Lille’s Jonathan David is a high pressing forward, something which has paid off. The 21year old ties alongside Burak Yilmaz as the combined Lille top scorers in 29 league games. His last goal was a brace against Marseille on 3rd March 2021. We expect Lille to field a strong team to keep their title hopes alive despite holding on 3 points lead against rivals PSG and Lyon also who play each other on Sunday. We are backing Jonathan David to find the net in a match that Lille must win or at least get a point.

Both Teams to Score

Four of the last five meetings between the two teams have ended in more than three goals. While Lille has won four of those games and drawn one, Nimes only failed to score in two of those meetings. Nimes has scored in all the last seven Ligue 1 games this season, a record they want to continue against Lille. The hosts have managed to score in 5 games out of the last seven league games. Scoring in this fixture is a must for Lille if they must keep their titles home alive. It is why we are backing the hosts to also find the net.

Correct score: 1-1

Lille must either win or draw to keep PSG and Monaco off the top position of the French Ligue 1 table. While Lille has conceded the least goals (17) in 29 games, they will be facing a resurgent Nimes that is threatened by relegation. Nimes has won three of the last 5 league games, only losing once. A fight to survive means they must continue their strong showing since 14th February 2021. The visitors have only conceded three goals in the last six games and kept three clean sheets. Lille is undefeated in the last six games, keeping four clean sheets. An improved defence of the visitors is why we are predicting a low-scoring match that will end 1-1.

Lille Vs. Nimes Preview: Can Nimes Make Final Push Off The Relegation Zone Against Title Contenders?

Coming into this fixture, Lille have had only four days of rest due to a cup fixture in which they lost 3-0 to PSG. Nimes is travelling to Lille after 7 days of rest, which gives them a competitive advantage. Historically, Lille has been the better side but this is a different match. The visitors need a win to escape the relegation zone or at least a draw to occupy a playoff spot. The home team must do all it takes to hold onto their table lead, which will put to test against a resurgent side. A draw looks like the value bet on the books.
