Lille will be keen to continue their good start to the new Ligue 1 season when they visit Nantes on Friday night. The visitors will travel to Stade de la Beaujoire full of confidence after winning their opening league fixture in a dominant fashion. On the other hand, Nantes’ start to the new season is anything but impressive, making them the underdogs in this fixture despite being set to play the game at their home ground. After winning the league crown in the 2020/21 season, Lille endured a forgettable 12 months, which they will hope to put behind them in the new campaign.

Paulo Fonseca-managed side could not have wished for a better start than the one they managed last weekend. Lille eased past newly-promoted Auxerre 4-1 in a ruthless fashion. The dominant victory will give fans massive hope, as they bid to improve upon their 10th-place finish from last campaign. Meanwhile, Nantes started with a 4-0 defeat at the Trophee des Champions against Paris Saint-Germain before managing a goalless draw at Angers. Last season, they finished just ahead of Lille in ninth place.

Possible Lineups

The Paulo Fonseca era began on the best possible note, as Lille destroyed their opponent on opening day with some style. They were great to watch on the eye, as they moved the ball well and pressed Auxerre tirelessly making it hard for them to play their usual game. Hence, it is unlikely that Fonseca will make a lot of changes to the winning team. Two-goal hero, Jonathan David, could continue to play on the right, allowing Mohamed Bayo to play down the middle, while Remy Cabella will continue to be the advanced playmaker. Like Lille, Nantes also do not have any notable injury concerns, which could also allow them to name the same starting XI as last weekend.

Nantes possible line-up: Lafont, Appiah, Girotto, Pallois, Coco, Sissoko, Chirivella, Merlin, Blas, Simon, Guessand

Lille possible starting line-up: Leonardo, Zedadka, Fonte, Ribeiro, Djalo, Andre, Gomes, Cabella, David, Bamba, Bayo
