Nice vs Lille
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 28th September 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riveria.
Nice and Lille should be a very good game but here we have two teams that should be pushing more for the top of the league.
Nice are in 7th place with 12 points and they are only 3 points behind league leaders PSG, but some inconsistency means that they could be top. They are finding it hard to get a run of wins together. Their last game was a disaster for them as they lost to Monaco 3-1 in the local derby and lost the bragging rights.
At home Nice have won 2 and lost one, that defeat was to Marseille. What has been interesting to note is that all of their home games so far have ended in the same correct score of 2-1.
Lille are 3rd and like Nice with some more solid results they could have been in top place. But considering some of the players they have sold and the added matches with the Champions League the club are doing well and come into this game undefeated in their last 3 matches. Their last game ended in a solid 2-0 win over Strasbourg.
Nice vs Lille: Head to Head
The last time the teams met at Lille, Lille won 4-0.
Last season this fixture ended 2-0 to Nice.
Lille have not won here since 2012.
There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Nice vs Lille: Prediction
This game looks like a case where we have two equal sides and whoever has home advantage has the better possibility to win the game. Nice have been solid at home with just one loss and Lille would rather not play on the road.
We should expect a match to be played out like a game of chess, with more and more chances as legs get tired and more space is created, but our main bet here is to see Patrick Vieira’s Nice get a very important win as they try and move up the table.
