Nice vs Lille France – Ligue 1 Date: Saturday, 14 May 2022 Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET Venue: Allianz Riviera.
Nice had a decent form at the first half of this season. However, the later half wasn’t that impressive. Their recordings were mostly inconsistent which resulted in losing the safe zone spot. They are points level with Strasbourg who occupies the fifth spot at present. Therefore, they will still have chances.
Nice recorded a 0-1 win on road against Bordeaux in their most recent league fixture to wove a thread of two subsequent league victories. They will be hoping to extend that thread by sealing another positive display with the aid of home advantage in the upcoming league outing.
Meanwhile, Lille had a disappointing run considering their past season recordings. They were at the top of the league table in the previous season and claimed the title at the end surpassing the French Giants PSG. But they are no where near it this season. They are out of the safe zone race too.
Lille recorded a 1-2 defeat t home against Monaco in their most recent league fixture. It was their fourth defeat in the past five league fixtures. Their hopes of finding a safe zone ended up with the above negative displays.
