Our recommended bet for Sunday’s clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy comes in the form of a draw between Lille and Lorient.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £50 with Betway.
Lille are set to kick the club’s ongoing push for a European berth back into gear this Sunday, April 2nd.
The matchup in question will see Les Dogues act as hosts, in a Ligue 1 meeting with Lorient at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Beginning with the former, Lille currently find themselves in the midst of a fine stretch of form.
All told, dating back to early-February, Paulo Fonseca’s troops have been condemned to just a solitary defeat across their last eight league outings.
This run features a quartet of victories, including, most recently, in the club’s final fixture leading into the international break.
A trip to Toulouse ultimately culminated in Fonseca and co. emerging on the right side of a 2-0 scoreline, owing to late goals on the part of Alexsandro and Mohamed Bayo.
Lille, in turn, find themselves sitting sixth in the table, a point adrift of Stade Rennais in the French top-flight’s final European berth.
Making it two wins on the spin, and three from five all told, though, will likely prove no easy task for Sunday’s hosts at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
This comes with upcoming opponents Lorient set to enter proceedings fresh off a solid stretch of results of their own.
Les Merlus, for their part, notched a win and two draws in their three fixtures across the month of March.
After first battling to a share of the spoils at Olympique Lyonnais, Regis Le Bris’ men followed up with a return to winning ways, at the expense of struggling Troyes.
Then, last time out, another hard-fought affair on the road culminated in Lorient departing the Allianz Riviera with a point, owing to a 1-1 stalemate with OGC Nice.
Les Merlus, as a result, have climbed to 8th in the standings in Ligue 1, in the knowledge that a victory this weekend would guide them to within two points of their hosts.
We at 101, however, view as much as unlikely.
Instead, we would recommend backing either an eventual win for Lille, or sharing of the spoils come the full-time whistle in northern France.
