Nancy vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 11th March, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Marcel Picot, Nancy.
With 10 games to go Nancy have hit terrible form which has saw them clinging onto 17th place and 1 point above the relegation zone. 4 losses from their last five matches have seen this plight and at home to Lille they will look to get all three precious points.
But for Nancy it’s been two months since they claimed a win at home over a 3 game period and they have scored just 12 goals at home all season, this has obviously been their biggest problem.
Lille are a position above Nancy so this is a real six-pointer where the club are currently two points ahead of Nancy. A loss or draw could see them being dragged down too. Lille has just 1 win in their past five games which came away to Caen.
The positive for Lille is that their recent away form has been encouraging where they have won 8 points from their last 15. This included an impressive victory at Lyon and their one loss was to PSG.
Nancy vs Lille: Head to Head Stats

Nancy vs Lille: Prediction
Both teams will be nervous about this match as they lie in the same area of the table and both need points. They may well settle for an easy draw and put another point on the table. Do not expect a match filled with goals.
