Lille on a solid form to win the Ligue 1 title

It is harder to stay at the top than to reach the top, with this motto Lille will be playing this match with only one intention and that is to win. Lille have just one defeat in 16 matches. They are keen to keep their spot at the top to win their first Ligue 1 title since 2010/11.

Lille have the fewest defeats in the Ligue 1 with three but the worrying factor could be that two of those defeats were at home. Coach Christoph Galtier’s team gathered ten points from their last five games. It was five points lost rather as every point is so important for them.They had a very big game in their last match as they beat Lyon the third in the table by 3-2.

Galtier now saw his team both contenders with them for the Ligue 1 title and away from home. In the match against Lyon, they went down 2-0 before halftime but a great fighting spirit and will to win saw the Lilloise score three goals and record an amazing comeback.

Nice looking to maintain a winning form

Mid-table placed Nice are safe of the relegation zone and are ten points away from a European spot. They have nothing to play for in the season except for a better finish on the table and for that, they have to keep the form of their last match when they beat Montpellier 3-1.

 Like their opponents, Nice as well gathered ten points from their last five matches as they have lost just one of those five games. Things have not been well for coach Adrian Ursea’s team as they failed to score in two of their last three matches.

In their last match, nice beat Montpellier at home and like their opponents had to come back from a goal down early in the first half.

  • Two or more goals have been scored in Nice’s four of the last five matches
  • In nine of 12 H2H matches between Lille and nice two or more goals have been scored

Lille vs Nice Prediction

Lille are edging ever closer to a Ligue 1 title and they don’t want to give away any points especially not at home and against a team who are not competing for any trophies or spots.

Nice will play for their pride and will hope to get a decent result here which may be a point. The bookies are clearly favoring Lille to win and we will back that. In order for the odds to be reasonable, we will add two goals and a home win.
