Tournament: LFP. Ligue 1.
The match between Lille and Nice on Pierre-Mauroy stadium on Friday evening will open the 23rd round of the French Ligue 1. This match is the fight of the teams that are fighting for participation in the Champions League next year.
Looking at the 2nd place that Lille takes now, everything seems to be clear but with Nice nothing is clear – the club approaches this match being in the status of the 7th football club of the championship. Nevertheless, there can be mentioned positive changes.
As soon as Mario Balotelli has left the football club and moved to Marseille, the Red and Blacks started to work as consolidated tool: in 20119 they have spent 4 matches from which they have gained 2 “dry” wins and 2 draws (1:1 with Monaco and Reims).
Lille for Nice is very strong rival but the Drugs really understand that in order to gain 3 points they will have to work hard.
The matter is that despite the negative goal difference, Nice misses few goals this season: the team of Patrick Vieira has got the 3rd by its strength defense in Ligue 1 (the best defense have only PSG and Montpellier) and that is why we should think about counterattacking gaming model that has to bring if not the win or draw but at least a decent loss with minimal score difference.
Our tip: Both teams to score Yes – odds 2.17
