Nice vs Lens (Ligue 1) Preview

We have a game here with one team just missing out on European football and then another who are back plying there trade in the ligue 1 after being away since 2015.

Nice last 5 games – LWWLW

Nice will be looking to bounce back from missing out on European football and will be looking to build after a good couple of additions to the team and keeping the core of the squad together. Some very talented players still play here and they will be looking to push forward together to make a real go of getting into European football again! They will be licking there lips at the prospect of welcoming the newly promoted side on day 1. Viera is building a nice squad here that will be looking to build upon last season and kick on after capturing the services of a tricky winger by the name of Lopes.

Lens last 5 games – WWLLW

Lens will be looking to create a stable foundation to build on and stay in Ligue 1 for years to come. A very impressive campaign last season got them promoted and were in touching distance of the champions which just shows they have the talent to compete with most teams, along with a big recruit drive saw multiple players join who will no doubt be first team regulars this season.

Surely here we have a European challenger against a newly promoted side who have been out of the top division since 2015. On paper there is only 1 winner and its clear to see that Nice is the favourite in my eyes as well as mostly anyone around.
