- Lens have won their last three home games against Nice
- Nice have lost three of their last five league games
- Nice have conceded at least 2-goals in four of their last five matches in Ligue 1
Nice’s Winless Run Set to Continue this Weekend
Lens made a return to winning ways with a midweek 1-0 victory at Marseille, after going three league games without a win. Nice suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Bordeaux last weekend and have now failed to win any of their last five matches in Ligue 1. Those results mean that Lens head into this game in 7th place, while Nice remain stranded in the bottom half of the table in 14th position.
When these two sides met earlier in the season for their reverse league fixture, Nice claimed a narrow 2-1 win. However, Lens have won their last three home games against this weekend’s guests and have outperformed them in all departments so far this season. Lens claim the title of form favourites as they have picked up two wins, one draw and three defeats from their last six matches. Nice have only managed to win one of their last six fixtures and have picked up two draws and three defeats in their last five league games.
We’re expecting a low-scoring 90-minutes between the two clubs as five of their last seven encounters in Ligue 1 have produced under 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals have also been scored in four of Lens’ and three of Nice’s last six leagues games. The visitors have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five matches, which bodes well for the home side.
We’re predicting a Lens win on Saturday and have backed a final scoreline of 2-0. The hosts are by far the stronger of the two clubs this season and have really impressed since making the step back up from Ligue 2. Nice are in the midst of a poor run of form while the hosts head into this game on the back of an impressive away win.
