Note: The odds for Lille vs Saint-Etienne are correct at the time of writing. For update prices, please confirm with Betfred before placing your bet.

Burak Yilmaz to score anytime

If Lille scores in this match, the goal will most likely come from the team’s top scorer, Burak Yilmaz. The Turkish forward has been phenomenal for Les Dogues and we expect him to find the net in the last home fixture for the hosts this season. The player has six goals in the last five games.

Both teams will find the net

Our second prediction is a bold pick of both sides to score. While Lille is undoubtedly the better side coming into this fixture, the hosts couldn’t put more than one goal past Saint-Etienne goalkeeper in the reverse fixture that ended 1-1. Saint-Etienne has scored in all their last seven away games and won five of them. We expect the visitors to score at least once in this game. Moreover, Lille has the third-best home record and we fancy the hosts to also score in their last Ligue 1 home fixture this season.

Victory for Lille in both halves

While Lille hasn’t had the best results in the last five home Ligue 1 games, winning only two, drawing twice and losing one, we fancy the hosts to keep their title race alive with a big win on Sunday. Lille comes into this game with the best run of form in the last five games of four victories and one draw. They kept a clean sheet in four of their last six fixtures, three of which were away victories.

Match Preview: Lille can make a statement with their last home game

Lille badly needs a win to widen the gap between them and PSG. Only three points separate the two sides as we head into week 37 of Ligue 1 fixtures. Can Lille get their hands on the title this season? Find out more in our game preview below.

Lille

Playing the last home fixture this season should come with good tidings for Lille. The hosts are wary of PSG’s huge goal difference and only getting more points can give them hope of lifting the Ligue 1 trophy. Moreover, Lille hopes to get their third home victory in the last five games, or things could get complicated heading into the final games of the season. Lille manager, Christophe Galtier has four victories against his Sunday opponent, who has three. There have been five draws in the previous 12 meetings between the two tacticians. The tight contest between the two managers is, therefore, another worry for Galtier who averages 1.61 points per match.

Saint-Etienne

St. Etienne manager, Claude Puel averages 1.52 points per match. The tactician has only lost once to his Lille counterpart in the last twelve encounters. For that, we expect a tight contest in this game. Moreover, securing a vital point in the reverse fixture that ended 1-1 is important for the visitors. Saint-Etienne is 11th on Ligue 1 table with 45 points, which is enough for safety. However, we think the visitors will fight for points in this game.
