Lille – Nice, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LILLE - NICE
Lille took part in a slightly strange match against Marseille in the last round, where they got 2-1 win, but fans of Marseille made a terrible riot, and the game had to be interrupted to 1-0 for some time, then was extended and Marseille had a red card and Lille scored a crucial goal in the extra time. Although Balotelli scored in his debut in the last minute, this couldn’t help Marseille and Lille greeted themselves with 3 points.
Now they are back home, where they are making their matches more and more difficult, and they have had several failures. Nice is one of the more defensive teams this season and after Favre, they changed their style of play. They are not so spectacular, but their results are far more satisfactory lately, and you can even say that they have a chance for the top 3, because Nice are just 6 points behind Lyon. Still it will be hard for them, because they fight for this position with 4 more teams at the moment.
Lille did not start their home games in the best way lately and either had to make comebacks or get victories much later, while Vieira’s team play extremely disciplined and tactical and in general very difficult allow to the opponent to create clear chances for goal. That is precisely why we do not think Nice will concede a quick goal. They rarely lose their games in the first half, so our prediction is First Half – X2 at 1.54.
