On December 29, Allianz Riviera (Nice) will host the match of the 16th round of French Ligue, in which Nice will compete with Lens. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

Nice

The club has got ambitious and wealthy owners – INEOS Group Limited, a British multinational chemicals company. Last season Galtier, who had taken the league title with Lille, was lured as a coach. But that time, the mentor managed to finish only in the 5th place. As a result, the contract with the “unlucky” specialist was quickly broken up, giving a chance to work with PSG. The coach who had left for Paris was replaced by Favre, who, having more than modest opportunities, had won the bronze medals with “the Eaglets”. So far, the Swiss, who has come back to the club once again, is not living the expectation. According to the results of the beginning of the season, the statistics are pretty equal: 5 wins, draws and losses, and the goal difference is negative – 15-17. Of course, everyone wants Lucien to show more, and it is highly important for him to make progress, starting from the very first winter game.

Lens

The team has so far become the main discovery of this season. It is worth remembering that for all their considerable merits, “the Blood and Gold” were able to return to Ligue 1 only in 2020. At first, it was a great success to stay in the elite division, finishing the season in the 7th place. And now it turned out to make a serious surprise: only PSG, which is unattainable, has got better results! The wards of Franck Haise lost only once – a 0-1 score in the away game with Lille. Among the other 14 matches, there were 11 victories, including the last 5 rounds before the pause. Of course, the team wants to stay in the place, which finally allows returning to the Champions League. In this very meaning, it was extremely unfortunate to have such a long pause – has the team managed to keep that courage that helps to be sensational on an ongoing basis?

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Nice had 4 wins in a row. And finally Lens was able to win in April, which happened in a home battle with a 3-0 score.

Predictions

Bookmakers believe that Lens, being a nominal favourite, will meet a lot of problems in the struggle with Nice. The game will turn out to be pretty good – we bet on “total: over 2.0” (odd: 1.63).
