Nice vs Lille Predictions and Match Preview

Nice vs Lille
France-Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).

The Eagles are on a 4 game win streak in all competitions. The most common score in 4 of the last 5 matches is 1-0. In the last 6 matches, they have lost only once. But home form raises concern for their fans.

In the last 7 matches in front of home fans, 4 were lost and the remaining matches were won by them. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 6 home matches.

With this performance, they are 7th in the table. In 13 games they lost 5 and won 6. They are poor in scoring goals as they have only found the net 10 times this season. Also in 6 home matches, they conceded 10 goals which are the third worst start in the league.

The Great Danes are second in the league behind PSG, who are 13 points ahead of them. Lille have won 8 of their 13 matches and lost 3 as well. They were having a 4 game winning streak in the league which ended with a loss against PSG in Round 12. This was followed by a goalless draw against Strasbourg.

So they are winless in the recent 3 matches in all competitions. Also, they failed to maintain a clean sheet in 4 of the last 7 games. In the last 6 away matches in all competitions they lost 4, and are currently on a 2 match losing streak.

There is only 6 points between them and Lille are looking in a state of bother after some away defeats. Nice may surprise us if they utilize their newly found momentum.

Nice vs Lille: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • In the last 8 h2h matches across all venues, 6 matches were drawn and Nice won the remaining 2 games.
  • Lille has not won against Nice since May 2012.
  • Nice are unbeaten in the last 6 h2h matches at home and have won 3 of them.
  • Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last 5 matches between these two teams.

Nice vs Lille: Prediction

In 3 of the 5 recent away matches of Lille, the score had over 2.5 goals. A similar scoreline was also produced in 4 of the previous 5 home matches of Nice. Lille is good at scoring and the hosts have problems in that department. But we can expect a score of over 2.5 goals like in the last h2h in this venue and bet on the same with 2.00 odd.

Both the teams are having a similar form. In their last 5 matches, both have won 3 and lost 1 too. But Nice is on an active 3 match win streak. So they will have more chances to win with home advantage also going in their favor. Since Lille has not won at this venue since 2012 the host may win. So we can bet on a double chance of either the game ending in a draw or the hosts winning with 1.50 odd.
