0 22

Saint Etienne face relegation threatened Lille to revive their upsetting season so far.

Lille picked up their first victory since early days of October before the International break against a distorted Metz to place a comeback sequence against Etienne this weekend. New manager Marcelo Bielsa finally have a glimre of hope to guide his club away from relegation spot. Lille played their best in 3-0 victory over Metz just what they lacked the season so far and new coach in the training ground means lille will soon enjoy a new part to their tale. However, Lille have failed to gather full points on several occasion this term with nine draws, some of them which was winnable.
One man who had the opposite nature to that of his club, Nicolas Pepe carried the same mood of scoring in his team’s happy and sad moments. Through his feet, Lille are now thinking to obtain bigger.

Les Verts will travel to Stade Pierre Mauros on back of a stingering defeat to Lyon, a game where a Nabdil Fekir aristocratic performance out casted them 5-0. That defeat is another sample of the misery Etienne are suffering through. They have also came up empty handed in their last four games in all competition and have not scored more than a single game in those. Oscar Garcia is unable to set up the formula set up by Christopher Galtier over years of his management at the club. The club need to change their mindset at this instance if they are to compete for top four finish this season.
