Lille Preview – Can Lille’s run continue?

Since the end of the group stage in the Europa League, Lille recovered from their 3-2 defeat against Celtic in the final group match by losing just one further game in their last 13 matches in all competitions which has helped the hosts to the top of Ligue 1.

This impressive run of results include Lille winning seven of their last eight matches while also losing just once at home all season in the French top flight but this form hasn’t extended to the Europa League as Lille have managed to pick up just one win from their last eight matches.

However, both teams have scored in six of Lille’s last eight ties at home and further goals could follow in this 1st leg clash against Ajax as both teams look to get a lead in this Europa League tie.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Ajax Preview – Can Ajax take lead back to Amsterdam?

Having won nine of their last 11 matches in all competitions, Ajax will be in supremely confident mood as they prepare for this upcoming 1st leg clash away at Ligue 1 leaders, Lille, especially as the visitors have won their last eight matches on the trot.

This impressive sequence of results also include winning their last five matches on the trot too, having registered wins at Twente, AZ, Fortuna Sittard, AZ and Heracles while four of their last seven matches have also seen both teams score.

However, similar to their hosts, Lille, Ajax’s results away from home in the Europa League leave a lot to be desired as they’re without a win from their last eight ties on the road in this competition but at least six of Ajax’s last eight away ties have seen both teams score.
