Nice vs Lille Kick Off Time
NAME: OGC Nice – Lille OSC
DATE: 29 Jan 2023
TIME: 12:00 UTC
VENUE: Allianz Riviera, Nice, France
Nice take on Lille at the Allianz Riviera on Sunday afternoon, in what is likely to be a closely-contested match between two sides in the top half of the Ligue 1 table.
The hosts ran out 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season, although they are currently lower in the standings, sitting in 10th, while the visitors are up in sixth place.
This term, the side now managed by Didier Digard have scored just 22 goals in their 19 matches, with this lack of threat in front of goal playing its part in former manager Lucien Favre losing his job earlier this month.
Since Favre’s departure, there have been some signs of improvement on the front, defeating Montpellier HSC 6-1 in the first game after he was dismissed by the club, with Ross Barkley and Nicolas Pepe both bagging braces.
However, the same problems re-emerged in Nice’s last match, drawing 0-0 in a trip to Reims, failing to take advantage of their clear-cut chances by not managing to score despite having twice as many shots on target compared to their opponents.
Lille are well in the mix to finish in the top five, having amassed 34 points in 19 matches, an amount that leaves them three points adrift of Rennes, and eight points off the Champions League qualification spots.
Les Dogues’ recent form has been very promising, acquiring 11 points in their last five matches, the joint-second highest amount of any Ligue 1 side, conceding just two goals in the process.
