But neither side will underestimate the other's prowess, with the former having been deposed as domestic champions last term and the latter the incumbent holders of the Coupe de France, setting up a potentially mouthwatering clash between the pair.

Having suffered the ignominy of a curtain-raiser drubbing at the hands of a free-flying Paris Saint0Germain in Israel in the Trophée des Champions last month, Nantes could only muster a goalless draw with Angers to get their new Ligue 1 season up and running.

But with plenty of the players who guided the club to knockout success term still on-board, they will know that they have a team who can upset the established order of heavy favourites this term.

Predicted Nantes starting XI: Lafont; Castelletto, Girotto, Pallois; Coco, Sissoko, Chirivella, Merlin; Blas; Guessand, Simon.

Forwards Bamba, David, Lihadji, Weah, Bayo

After a struggle throughout last term to live up to their title-winning dramatics, Lille have certainly started like a train this term, with a comfortable win over Auxerre getting them off the mark in style, in no small part thanks to a first-half brace from Jonathan David.

The Canada star will be likely called on again to deliver the goods this week, but whether he can carve out the desired effect once more remains to be seen.

Predicted Lille starting XI: Jardim; Zedadka, Fonte, Ribeiro, Djalo; Andre, Gomes; David, Cabella, Bamba; Bayo.
