Lille vs St. Etienne for the French Ligue 1 championship match on Wednesday at Pierre Mauroy Stadium.
The Lille team is entering this new Ligue 1 matchday 3 game, and they are having a start to the season that is still hard to figure out where will take the team, but it is a fact that last season’s runners-up added up so far 3 points from the results combined in the previous two rounds.
The locals beat Nantes in round 1 by 2-1 and lost 1-0 in round 2, at Amiens.
In this new season, the team will have a much higher difficulty than last year as they will be in the Champions League group stage, which should result in several negative practical consequences, such as accumulated fatigue and psychological tiredness, which will have to be something managed very well from the beginning of the Millionaire League.
For the away team, St. Etienne, enters this new match this season, in French football, in the 1st division of the competition, adding 4 points in the first two matches played, in which the team had a triumph in the 1st out-of-doors round in Dijon, but then tied at home with Brest to one ball.
In what will be a difficult season to manage for the historical side, who qualified for the Europa League group stage of this sports season.
In case of victory in this match, the team will shoot and climb some places in the Ligue 1 standings.
Given what we have seen so far in the games of both teams, with a football given to some defensive errors that have boosted goals, it also provides some insight about the fact the players are still far from ideal physical levels, I think we can have a match here with some goals.
Also given the fact that Lille is strong at home, I believe in a local triumph.
