Lille’s form in the last 5 matches: L L W D L

Lille is bringing a lot of disappointment to fans. Calculating the last 5 matches played, the defending champion of Ligue 1 only won 1 match. It was a 1-0 victory over PSG in the French Super Cup match. It is worth mentioning that there have been 3 matches Jocelyn Gourvennec and his students have lost. Therefore, Lille’s loss rate is now 60%.

Only in the Ligue 1 arena, Lille has not yet found the feeling of victory. In the first round, Les Dogues had an unconvincing draw when facing Metz. It is worth mentioning that when returning to Pierre Mauroy’s home ground in the second round, Lille also lost to Nice 0-4. Thus, until now, the defending champion has only won 1 point.
