Tip Reasoning

  • Nice failed to score in each of their last three home games.
  • Nice picked up just 40% of their points haul at home.
  • Lens are unbeaten in four of their five league games as outsiders this season (W2, D2, L1).

Potentially pivotal clash to round out 2021

A win over Rennes last time out ensured that Nice maintained their status as a top-four side in Ligue 1 ahead of this round, though they now welcome one of their biggest threats, Lens.

While visiting manager Franck Haise lost both of his prior engagements with Nice, his Lens side sit just three points behind their hosts today and will be looking to pounce while they are wounded, having lost three consecutive home games without scoring.

Lens could spring a surprise

One thing to note about this Nice side is that they often perform better when not expected to do well. Notably, Nice are unbeaten in all Ligue 1 games as pre-match outsiders this term but possess just a 58% win-rate when beginning as favourites, suggesting they may be susceptible here.

On the other hand, Lens currently endure a tough five-game winless run in away league games but they will be buoyed by their Coupe de France victory on the road last time out. Moreover, they managed to avoid defeat in three of their four away league games as betting outsiders this term (W2, D1, L1).

Taking the trends into consideration, I think it is worth taking a risk on the away side. As such, I predict a hard-fought 2-0 Lens win, though I will cover myself by backing the double chance in my main prediction, which is an option while still retaining value here.
