Nice vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 2nd March 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riveria (Nice).
Nice are experiencing their worst form of the season as they can’t get a win in 2018. Their recent poor form has seen them drop from a possible top 5 position to 9th place. They have earned just 2 points in their last five games.
However their last two matches did stop their losing run as they achieved two draws and maybe this could be the start of rebuilding confidence within the team. Despite their nightmare few weeks they are only 3 points from 5th place and a possible European place so it isn’t all doom and gloom for them. They need to pick up points and playing Lille at home does present the perfect opportunity.
Lille are 19th but a win would see them out of the relegation zone. Recent form is poor and the club have not won a game for four weeks. Away from home they have just 3 wins all season and have been poor in front of goal scoring just 10 all season.
Nice vs Lille: Head to Head
- 5 of the last 6 meetings have ended in a draw
- Lille have not beaten Nice here since 2012
- Based on recent results there is a 90% chance to see under 2.5 goals
Nice vs Lille: Prediction
There is a big quality difference in the sides and we expect Nice to get the win they need. They have been underwhelming but being at home and playing a bottom three team should wake the club up. The match will be played on early evening of Friday this will really suit Nice and we expect this to be a solid home win at decent odds for us.
