Lens vs. Nice: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
On February 1, Lens are set to host Nice for the Ligue 1 Week 21 clash. Easy victory for the Blood and Golds? The answer is in our prediction.
Lens are still at the 2nd position in the Ligue 1 standings. Team is three points away from the 1st-placed PSG. Blood and Golds managed to beat Parisians in one of recent matches (3:1). But Franck Haise's men dropped points in other matches, most of which ended in draws. Among others, Lens drew to Nice (0:0) and Strasbourg (2:2).
Nice are lower than the opponent in Ligue 1 standings - they are right at the mid-table, 10th place. With 28 points, the Eaglets are tied on points with higher-placed Lyon.
Didier Digard's men have a chance to rise higher in the standings. The Gym had almost no defeats in latest matches. In three most recent games Nice had two victories and one draw.
