Note: The odds for Lille vs Nice are subject to change before kick on Saturday 1st May 2021 at 2200 hrs GMT.

It will be square at Half-Time

While Lille is the bookies’ favourites in this game, we expect a relatively tense game. The history between Lille and Nice shows a trend of frequent draws. There have been 9 draws in the last 19 meetings between the two sides. Moreover, the last two meetings between Lille and Nice ended 1-1. In the last two encounters, the teams shared the spoils at half-time. Both teams are enjoying a good run of results in the last five games. Moreover, the two teams have lost only once in their last five fixtures. Improved defence on both sides is another reason a draw at half-time is plausible in this fixture.

More than Two Goals

Another bet that comes with a great price on Betfred is more than two goals. Both teams have been good in front of goal, only failing to score once in each of their last six fixtures. Lille welcomes Nice on the back of a 3-2 victory on the road at Lyon, a fixture in which the hosts managed eight shots on target. Nice travels to Lille after a 3-1 victory against Montpellier. The visitors also had eight shots on target last weekend.

Goals for Both Teams

Given the good run of form for both teams, we are also backing them to score at least once in this game. Lille has scored in all their last five games. The visitors have won three of their last five Ligue 1 games. Thus, we are looking at two teams that appear to be at par based on their current form and results.

Match Preview: Can Lille Keep Up with the Title Race?

This could be a tricky fixture for Lille in their fight for Ligue 1 title. Can they bag victory at home against Nice since their 4-0 victory in February 2019? More in our fixture preview.

Lille

The truth is, Lille is unsteady at the top. Even if they share points with second-placed PSG at the end of the season, Lille will likely lose out on goal difference. Currently, the hosts hold a one-point advantage over PSG, and with the latter also playing on Saturday 1st May, we expect a tense match day. It is match week 34 and Lille can only keep their title hopes alive if they win the remaining four games. Third-placed Monaco is also hot on the heels of Lille because only two points separate the two teams. This game will be about how best Lille can handle pressure, which they have done severally this season.

Nice

Nice last recorded Ligue 1 away victory against Lille in April 2017. The last two meetings ended in a 1-1 draw. But can Nice stop Lille from Ligue 1 title chase on Saturday? Well, Nice isn’t a team to easily wish away. They have the seventh-best away record so far. The visitors have three victories and one draw in their last four away fixtures.
