Lille vs Nice Prediction 20 December 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade Pierre-Mauroy
Match date: 20.12.2017 at 19:50

On December 20 2017 at 19:50 at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Villeneuve d’Ascq the local Lille will play against Nice in the upcoming match of the French national elite division Ligue 1.

The first half of the Ligue 1 is almost over and yet we didn’t see any improvements of the performance of Lille. Their 18 points gained in their 18 matches played leave them on the 18th position in the standings. Moreover, there is one single team which lost more games when Lille did and that Team is Metz who are the absolute outsiders of the league. In the latest two away games Lille lost to Dijon 3:0 and Paris Saint-Germain 3:1. As for their latest two domestic matches Lille outplayed Toulouse 1:0 and Lyon 1:2.

During the first half of the current season of the championship Nice have already been among the leaders and the outsiders of the league. At the moment Nice show really great performance and they won their latest four games played. At the moment Nice have 26 points and take the 6th place in the table 9 points below the Euro Cups zone. We must also admit that Nice managed to improve their statistics in the away matches due to the victories against Nantes 1:2 and Toulouse 1:2 at the end of November.

Both teams have been rather unstable in the first half of the national championship and yet Nice showed some particular progress lately which makes them the favorites of the upcoming match. Last time the teams met was really not long ago on December 13 on the Coupe de France. The teams drew 1:1 during the main time and after that Nice won after the penalty shooting. Anyway, it seems to us that the visitors will probably manage to avoid a loss in the upcoming game.
