Pascal Dupraz's men are currently enjoying an uncharacteristically abundant streak in front of goal and Al Hain-Cole expects this to continue at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy
Rene Girard has enjoyed an inconsistent start to life in northern France but his side are clear 4/6 (1.67) favourites with Paddy Power to earn two consecutive wins for the first time under the former Montpellier boss.
After collecting just one point from their opening three games, Les Croix de Savoie have accumulated seven points from the last possible nine, and are available at 9/2 (5.50) to come out on top at this ground for the second season in a row.
Pascal Dupraz’s men are unbeaten in the hosts’ back yard, having claimed an four points from six on their previous two visits, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them maintaining that record with a draw this evening.
The key to the visitors’ recent renaissance has been their discovery of a killer instinct in front of goal, as the traditionally low-scoring team have hit the back of the net seven times in their last three matches, including tough fixtures against former champions Lyon and Montpellier.
Marseille loanee Modou Sougou seems to have added an extra threat from the bench, while striker Kevin Berigaud has already exceeded last year’s goal haul with five strikes in his last four games, meaning Evian will not be short of confidence going into tonight’s clash.
While Lille have proved a tough nut to crack so far this season, their 2-0 defeat against Nice in the last home game proved they are far from invincible, and their guests will be optimistic of continuing their strong record on this ground.
Dupraz’s side have found plenty of joy from their attacking approach to recent games and with 15 goals scored in their last four league fixtures, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look extremely inviting on both teams finding the net here.
