Nice – Lille : Preview & Prediction
OGC Nice, 9th in Ligue 1, has not moved forward for a month but remains in contact with the 5th place synonymous with European qualification next season (Montpellier is only 3 points). The Aiglons, eliminated from the Europa League by Lokomotiv Moscow (2-3 and 0-1), have just taken 2 points out of 15 distributed over the last 5 days. After 3 defeats in Metz (2-1), against Toulouse (0-1) and in Dijon (3-2), the GYM has just shared points with Nantes (1-1) at the Allianz Riviera and Bordeaux ( 0-0). A draw in Gironde synonymous with victory as the Bordeaux have dominated and touched the Nice amounts 4 times. A match clicks for the proteges of Lucien Favre? The LOSC, relegated position (19th), is not off the hook since Angers, 17th, is only 1 length ahead. But the Dogues, like their adversary of the day, are in a negative spiral. The Lille have taken only 2 points out of 12 at stake in Nantes (2-2) and against Lyon (2-2) at Stade Pierre Mauroy. Christophe Galtier’s players lost to PSG (0-3) on February 3 and come back to lose at home against Angers (1-2) last Saturday. A high-risk displacement for the northern formation.
Lille has not won against Nice since May 2012.Nice, 6th home team: 7 wins, 2 draws, 5 defeats.
