Nice have everything to gain against lifeless Lille

Nice can maintain their push to get into the Champions League with a home win over deposed champions Lille at Allianz Riviera on Saturday. Les Aiglons have so much more on the line than the visitors for this penultimate fixture of the Ligue 1 campaign and that’s before going into the extra motivation coach Christophe Galtier might have when facing his old club.

Lille have limped along this season, putting up the sort of title defence that suggests the players knew it would be a one off and the crowing glory of their careers. Les Dogues have lost four of their last five league games, including their last tw0 away trips and know they are going to be in for a harsh examination from their old boss.

Without cornerstone pieces of their championship win such as Renato Sanches, Sven Botman and Benjamin Andre for this game through suspension,  Lille could be left rudderless on the south coast. All three started in the 3-0 away spanking by Troyes a fortnight ago as all the signs of a team giving up were on display from the visitors, including two red cards.

Nice not accustomed to big home wins

It was no surprise to see Lille turned over by Monaco last week either, although they did put up more of a fight in front of their own fans. This, however, feels like the sort of game that could go south for them very quickly and it prompts us to examine the handicap markets.

However, only two of LOSC’s seven away defeats this term have seen them go down by more than a goal while Nice have only enjoyed a cushion of more than one in two of their previous ten home league wins.  The hone win price of around 8/11 offers decent returns, though, and we will up the stake here to a three star bet to emphasise how much confidence  there is in the hosts.

A 2-0 home win should still be worth a small investment in correct score betting as Nice have kept clean sheets on three of their last six at home while scoring an average of 1.67 goals per game across that sequence.
