Betting tips for Lille VS Nantes 11.08.2019

The outsider team has also lost each of their last two opening day games, receiving three goals in both - lost 3-0 to Lille in the 2017/18 season. However, and encouragingly, he opened the scoring during the first half in each of his last three L1 away games (G1, E2).
