OGC Nice vs RC Lens.
Although they managed to defeat Standard Liege 4-1 in a friendly at the beginning of December, the host team is coming into this game off a stretch of struggles during their matches over the World Cup break. The next match would be against Atalanta, where they would lose 3-0 despite only having one shot on target whole game.
The chances of Nice returning to Europe for the 2023–24 season, on the other hand, are currently very slim as we near the end of 2022. Nice is currently ninth in the table. With only five wins in the league thus far, the club will certainly struggle to close the eight-point gap on fifth-placed Lorient.
In addition to having only won a third of their games in Ligue 1 thus far, Nice has only scored 15 goals overall entering its matchup with Lens. Since they are not in the bottom four Ligue 1 relegation spots, no team has scored fewer goals than they have.
However, Lens had a fantastic time during the World Cup break and kept up their expertise. The team defeated another Ligue 1 team Montpellier, 2-1, and went on to win all three of their friendlies during the World Cup break. After defeating Le Havre of Ligue 2 3-0, they defeated Reims 2-1. Lens have triumphed 11 matches during their incredible run.
For this prediction: OGC Nice to win this match.
