Lille vs Nice: Our top betting tips

Nice are yet to win in Ligue 1 this season; can they put three points on the board here today? Find out with our Lille vs Nice match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Lille to win

Lille suffered a mauling at PSG last weekend but rebounded nicely as they travelled to Ajaccio afterwards; that means they've won three of their last five and lost just once. That's a starkly contrasting story to what Nice's form shows with the visitors yet to win a league game this season; in fact, they've only won one of their last six in all competitions and have lost three of their last four. On top of that, Nice have only won one of the last six head to heads with Lille as well!

Bamba to bag a goal

Our next prediction for this game is that Jonathan Bamba will score at some point in the 90 minutes. Bamba has looked good in his recent outings playing all but two minutes of Lille's Ligue 1 campaign to this point of the season; within that period he has weighed in with three goal contributions and, notably, has scored in each of the last two games.

Will Nice find a way to end their winless start to the season?

The season might only be a few games old but already these two sides have endured a fair bit of criticism. Nice have failed to win a single game and, quite frankly, have looked somewhat off the pace. Lille meanwhile have looked half decent in general terms but their loss at PSG attracted a lot of negative attention. Regardless of who wins this game, both need to turn in a good display here.

Lille bounced back from their PSG defeat last time out but as they look to make it six points from six here they'll once again have to do so without two attacking talents in Tim Weah and Remy Cabella. This match could well be the last game Cabella misses but Weah is likely to be absent for another few weeks at least.

Lille Predicted lineup – Jardim, Ismaily, Djalo, Fonte, Diakite, Gomes, Andre, Bamba, Yazici, Zhegrova, David

Nice might be struggling for results in the early part of the season but they need to find a way of making themselves hard to beat. They will need to do so without a couple of their star names though. Mario Lemina is out suspended after a previous red card whilst Kasper Dolberg and Hichem Boudaoui are both out injured; the latter duo should be back in early September.

Nice Predicted lineup – Schmeichel, Lotomba, Dante, Viti, Bard, Rosario, Thuram, Pepe, Ilie, Ramsey, Delort
