Lille have turned around their abysmal form at the start of the season, which saw the reigning champions look more like relegation candidates than retaining their title. Clermont’s recent form is solid too seeing them put some space between themselves and those in the bottom three. Despite this, we think Lille will have too much quality for them on the day.
Therefore, 101 Great Goals' prediction for this match is LOSC Lille 2-0 Clermont Foot and is available at odds of 7.5/1.
Alternatively, you can bet on any Lille win at 1.65/1 against Les Lanciers at home on Sunday.

LOSC Lille come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated with a clean sheet in all three matches. They have picked up ten points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Ligue 1 matches.
Les Dogues won their last league match away to Olympique Lyonnais. Expected goals of 1.5 to 0.7 in favour of Lyon indicates Lille didn't deserve all three points on the balance of chances created.
Gabriel Gudmundsson was the goalscoring hero for Lille. His first-half goal in open play proved enough to secure all three points against Lyon. It was the perfect moment for Gudmundsson to score his first league goal of this season for Lille and he is 7/1 to get on the scoresheet again here.
Léo Jardim in goal was the real man of the match though, making eight saves for his clean sheet here. The final score of the match was 0-1.

The Lancers shared the points in their last league match at home to FC Girondins Bordeaux. Expected goals of 0.9 to 0.6 in favour of Bordeaux indicates both teams probably deserved only a point.
It was Elbasan Rashani's equalising first-half goal that rescued a point for Clermont Foot. It was good to see him not dwell too long on missing a big chance just minutes earlier when this one came along.
Rashani now has six league goals this season for Clermont and is 7.5/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.
