Nice v Lens Match preview

Allianz Riveira will see Les Aiglons looking to return to winning ways at home. In their last home game, Christophe Galiter’s men lost 3-0 to Strasbourg. However, a 2-1 win away to highflying Rennes showed what this team is capable of.

The Riveira giants should be aiming for a place in the Champions League and they have the squad to do that. A top 3 finish in the first half of the campaign would be a guarantee if they’re able to defeat Lens.

Les Artisennes have struggled in their last six encounters and have leaked in 26 goals so far. This is something of a concern for the visitors who need to find more solidity at the back.
