Friday night action from Ligue 1 will see Nice travel to Lens. Lens will hope to improve on their home form as they have only picked up five points in their last seven home games a possible 21 points. With Lens struggling to score goals their defence has become even more important. Currently second from bottom in the Ligue 1 table it is now time for Lens fans to start panicking. Touzghar, Couibaly will need to provide more up front in the form of goals and assists. Lens are struggling since being promoted and looks like they may be going straight back down unless they can turn things around immediately.
Nice come into this one with decent away form winning three of their last five away games including a 1-0 win over Monaco in September which looks like terrific form considering how good Monaco have looked in recent weeks. Nice also barely lost to PSG in Paris in a game they really should have come away with something, losing to an Ibrahimovich penalty. Nice have some nice players but are reliant on Eduardo for goals as he is top scorer with six. Plea has been leading the line for Nice and doing a decent job of late.
Tough game to handicap, the oddsmakers look to have the corrent odds up and I was trying hard to find some value in this one. I am going to take Nice to win and both teams to score here. Its a speculative bet but at 5/1 I think there is some value there. Not enough to be a big bet but enough to keep us interested. Lens have scored and lost in two of their last five home games, Nice have won with both teams scoring in two of their last four away games.
