Our tipsters look to end the week using the full-time market in a Ligue 1 match between Lille and Saint-Etienne.

Just one more day to go before the weekend starts, and like many football fans, we can’t wait.

To warm us up for the weekend, we have several exciting games on Friday that include Atletico Madrid vs Cadiz and Cambuur vs Ajax. But for our Bet of the Day, we fancy delving into the full-time market in France by backing Lille to continue their mini-resurgence.

Our tipsters have researched the upcoming fixture in detail, assessed the most likely probabilities, where the best value lies, and think tipping a home win is worth a tilt.

🎲 Bet of the day: Lille vs Saint-Etienne

Lille have been a far cry from the title-winning side of last season, but they appear to have found a little consistency of late.

Les Dogues enter the contest off the back of a 4-0 win over Clermont from last weekend. It was their second win in a row, third in four games (D1), and saw them bag a fourth consecutive clean sheet. It’s a big improvement compared to the start of the season, and we fancy them continuing this form tonight.

While it’s true Lille have drawn in each of their last three meetings with Saint-Etienne, they have beaten Pascal Dupraz’s side in three of their last four home matches (D1) in all competitions.

Likewise, Saint-Etienne have hit some decent form of late. But their away form is a little poor for our liking, having lost eight times in 13 games (W3 D2) on the road this season. It’s the league’s third-worst record overall and doesn’t make a good telling against a Lille side that is unbeaten in 11 of its last 12 home league matches.
