Nice to cement their position in the top four

Nice had a very good start to their season this term winning five of their first seven matches and collecting 17 points. However, some inconsistent results in recent weeks saw Les Aiglons lose ground with the top of the table. To point out, Nice won one of their last four matches and that was their last in Rennes. Before that win, the Eaglets failed to score in three consecutive matches.

Nonetheless, their 0-0 draw in Paris with PSG is considered a great achievement. However, being fourth in the table is a fair position, and surely coach Christophe Galtier will do his best to maintain that post. Notably Nice are having their best season in four years after 18 rounds. Hence, Galtier has done a great job this season so far and a win here will enhance their hopes of a European spot.

Lens looking to get back to winning ways

Lens were in the second position a few weeks ago but a five-match winless run saw them slip down the table. In fact, The Blood and Gold collected just three points from a possible 15. Moreover, in their last four matches, Lens were leading but couldn’t hold on and went on to lose or draw those matches.

Certainly, Lens’s last match is a perfect example. As coach Franck Haise’s team were leading Nantes 0-2 at halftime. However, three goals by Nantes in the second half with the third coming at the 90th minute left Lens heartbroken. In effect, The Blood and gold need to bounce back and get back to winning ways.

 

Nice vs Lens Prediction

As we reach the halfway stage of the Ligue 1 season, both teams want to enter the winter break with a win. The bookies are offering quite high odds for a Nice win with 2.12. Certainly, the reason for that is the fact that Nice won the last three meetings with Lens.

However, when it comes to their respective home and away forms, both Nice and Lens are not at their best. To clarify, Nice lost their last three home games, while Lens won one of their last six away matches.

As for the goals market, there is a 62% chance for over 2,5 goals in this match. That was the case in Nice’s last two matches and Lens’s four of the last five matches. As a result, we will back over 1.5 goals combined with a double chance outcome.
