Nice v Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 27th August
Kick Off: 19:00 BST
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice)
Two wins against Rennes and Angers both by 1-0 have seen Nice get a nice start in Ligue 1. They are currently in 3rd place in the league standings on goal difference and will want to continue this great form over their visitors Lille.
Lille won their last game over Dijon but home fans were not impressed when they stumbled to just a 1-0 hard fought battled win over the newly promoted team and they were at home. It’s too early to judge Lille for now but they will be facing a stern test as they travel nearly 800km south for this fixture.
Nice v Lille: Head to Head
These two teams have met many times and it’s been four years now since Lille won this fixture. The games are usually tight and cautious. Stats punters out there will be interested to know that the last 7 matches between these two clubs have finished under 2.5 goals.
Does that mean we get a change or will that trend continue? Well Lille seems nervous right now and Nice are winning but not scoring many goals, so we think it can continue.
Nice v Lille: Prediction
Nice don’t usually win three games on a row so often and it can be stopped here but that doesn’t mean that Lille will win. It’s best to go all out here for the under goals market and back small on a full time draw. Both teams are still feeling their way around the league in this new season.
The last time when Lille went all out attack, they lost. They will be more realistic this time and might choose to play with one up front away from home and pack the midfield.
