Evian vs. Lille Ligue 1 preview: Tough test for embattled Evian

Posted by

Evian Thonon Gaillard welcome LOSC Lille to the Parc des Sports on Sunday afternoon in Ligue 1 action.

When: 4.00 pm GMT, 12 April 2015

Where: Parc des Sports, Annecy

Pascal Dupraz’s side are in the midst of a relegation battle and head into this weekend’s fixtures only four points off the drop.

With seven games to play, Evian are in 15th place and will be looking to put daylight between themselves and the bottom three in front of their own fans.

Visiting Lille, however, have won five of their last six and will prove to be a tough test.

Les Dogues have begun to find consistency after a sluggish season in which they have often been resolute but rarely delivered on their undoubted potential.

They have adapted well following the injury to Frank Beria and coach Rene Girard will hope that on-loan Liverpool striker will build on his goal against Stade de Reims last weekend and not slip into another drought.
