Goals could be in short supply as Nice travel to Lille on Friday night.
Seven points from their last three has seen Lille move up from 16th to 13th, now nine points clear of the relegation zone as they’ve crucially beaten two of the sides that were around them, Nancy and Bastia. Meanwhhile, Nice made it four wins in six unbeaten games when they beat Bordeaux 2-1 at home and remain in third, four points behind Monaco, though they have played a game more.
After five wins from their opening nine home games, Lille have since failed to win any of their last six at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy and as a result they look on the short side at 2.45. They’ve picked up only one point from their five home games against top-six sides, failing to score in three of these and also trailing at the break in three. However, they’ve generally proven competitive as free-scoring Monaco were the only ones to beat them by more than a single goal as three of the other games saw fewer than two goals.
Nice have won only two of their last eight on the road, drawing five of these, as their victories came over bottom-four sides Dijon and Lorient. They’ve struggled for goals on their travels as eight of their 15 away games have seen fewer than two goals and given Lille’s ‘unders’ trend when hosting the top teams, Under 1.5 Goals looks the best bet here at 2.88, while the draw is also worth consideration at 3.2.
