 Lille to win

Despite suffering a massive setback on goal difference in the first game of the season, Lille should get things back on track in their second game of the season. Lille’s top players, Jonathan Ikone and Burak Yilmaz were both instrumental in the first game. We also Jonathan David to come back stronger after a less impressive performance in the first game that saw in substituted in the 59th minute against Metz. The hosts win their last season home fixture against Nice and haven't lost to the visitors in four games.

Both teams will score

Our second prediction backs both sides to find the net. While Lille won the last two home fixtures against Nice with a clean sheet, the hosts leaked three goals against Metz in the first game of the season. On the other hand, Nice displayed and defensive prowess in their first game and recorded two shots on goal against none for Reims in their first match of the season. Fault lines that have emerged in Lille’s defence are the reasons we think Nice will score in this game.

The hosts to open the scoring

Lille should score first in this game. The hosts started the season with six shots on target, four more than Nice in the first game of the season. Nice has netted only one goal in the last three games while Lille has four goals in as many matches.

Game Preview: Can Lille Get Their Third Consecutive Home Victory over Nice?

Lille won their last two home fixtures against Nice with a clean sheet. There were a total of six goals in both games. Last season, Lille bagged a 2-nil home victory against Nice, which was an improvement over the 1-1 away result earlier in the season. After a 3-3 result against Metz in the first match of the season, we expect Lille to put in a shift in the second fixture and hopefully make the most of home advantage. Another poor performance should worry Lille's new head coach, Jocelyn Gourvennec. Gourvennec has 1W and 1D after two games in charge, translating to an average of 2.0 points and anything lower will put pressure on the French tactician early in the season.

On the other hand, Nice displayed a dominant performance of 61% ball possession in their first game. The visitors had two shots on target against Reims in the first game, both of which were saved by Reims goalkeeper, Predrag Rajkovic. For Nice to get their first away victory in regular time at Lille since April 2017, they must be more clinical in the final third.
