Lille kick off their 2022/23 Ligue 1 campaign with a home tie against newly-promoted Auxerre on Sunday at 2pm (UK time).
Les Dogues were defending champions last season but gave up their title with a massive whimper, finishing 10th, closer to 20th-placed Bordeaux than table-toppers Paris Saint-Germain. Auxerre, meanwhile, were securing their return to the top flight after a 10-year absence, beating Saint-Etienne in the relegation play-off on penalties.

Lille team news
After last season’s disaster, Paulo Fonseca has come in as the new manager and he’s been joined at Lille by five new players including former Newcastle man Remy Cabella and forward Mohamed Bayo. But the biggest stories at Lille this summer were the departures, with Renato Sanches recently departing for Paris Saint-Germain and Sven Botman finally getting his move to Newcastle.
Lille will also have another two players missing for the opening weekend through suspension, with Timothy Weah and Gabriel Gudmundsson punished for an accumulation of yellow cards towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
Auxerre team news
Auxerre have also made five new signings this summer as they prepare for their Ligue 1 return, including Benoit Costil who left Bordeaux after their relegation from the top flight at the end of last season. That was a free transfer, as were the rest of their arrivals, while Gautier Lloris (brother of Hugo) is one of two departures.
Unfortunately, Theo Pellenard suffered a serious knee injury during pre-season and is out for the foreseeable future.
Scoreline prediction: Lille 3-0 Auxerre
