Football – France – Ligue 1 Betting Tips

Second placed Lille will be looking to put Caen to the sword as the betting tips continue in the French top flight on Saturday evening.

Lille currently sit in second spot and therefore also occupy the other automatic Champions League berth eight points behind the usual runaway leaders of Ligue 1, PSG. Nevertheless, with surprise package Montpellier just three points behind Saturday night’s hosts, Lille will be keen to maintain their 100% winning record at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Lille are in great form right now having won five of their last six while at home they’ve been absolutely dominant so far with an excellent record of  5-0-0  14/3 which includes wins against Rennes, Guingamp, Nantes, Marseille and Saint-Etienne. They’ve also scored 3 goals in 4 of their 5 home matches with strikers Pepe and Bamba (7 goals apiece) being the main contributors in front of goal.

Caen sit mid-table in Ligue 1 as they’ve managed to register just two league wins all season to date – one at home (1-0 v Amiens) and one away (2-0 at Dijon), both of whom sit in the bottom five of the French top flight.

Although Caen still remain unbeaten at their Stade Michel d’Ornano, with just one win but four draws, their record away from home still requires further attention as they possess stats of  1-1-3  4/8 on their travels so far in this campaign.

Defeats at PSG (1st), Saint-Etienne (6th) and Marseille (4th) suggest that a trip to second placed Lille this Saturday evening may well be out of reach for the visitors who look every bit a mid-table outfit at the moment.

In addition, Caen have kept just one clean sheet from their last 12 away matches in Ligue 1.
