What a relief for the LOSC! Heroics face the OL (1-2) this weekend, the Lillois have just offered a breath of fresh air in the fight for the maintenance. With four points ahead of the first relegation, the Dogues approach this eighth of the Coupe de France quietly. Limed to ten behind at Park OL, Lille should especially enjoy the reception of the Nantes to display a much more offensive face. That’s what the Canaries are going to do. More dangerous than ever since Sérgio Conceição was named on their bench, the Nantes are able to adapt to any type of opponent. Only joined in the final minutes this weekend in Rennes (1-1), the Nantes know they can afford a quarter-final in the North. A real tactical battle is expected at the Pierre Mauroy Stadium.

Lille has won only 2 of its last 7 games in all competitions.
The two formations had parted back to back (0-0) at the end of the boredom in the championship at La Beaujoire at the end of 2016.
Nantes have not lost any of their last four games played away from their bases (3v-1n).
Lille Nantes – BETTING TIPS
Lille has just won in Lyon in the championship but remains extremely fragile. Faced with Nantes transfigured since they evolved under the orders of the demanding Sérgio Conceição, the LOSC, often apathetic before its public, will find it very difficult to seek a victory in regulation time. Double chance Nantes or Nul.
