Team News

  • Lille could be without Rio Mavuba, who has a thigh injury and Lucas Digne, who has an ankle problem.
  • Striker Tulio De Melo is still out with a groin injury, while Ryan Mendes and Salomon Kalou are both away at the African Cup of Nations.
  • Nice will be without Diacko Fofana and Moussa M'Bow both have knee problems.
  • Stephane Bahoken and Cyril Hennion are yet to return to fitness and Mahmane Traore is away at the African Cup of Nations.

Prediction

  • Lille are enduring a disappointing season, and they face a tough task this weekend looking to overhaul a Nice team that continues to impress.
  • Les Dogues slumped to a disappointing 2-2 draw with Nancy, whilst Nice hammered Valenciennes 5-0 at the Stade Du Ray.
  • The focus for this game will most likely be on the opposing strikers, Nolan Roux and Dario Cvitanich, both of whom head into this contest in fine form.
  • However, Lille's squad is beginning to look increasingly thin, and with Nice possessing a slew of in-form attacking talents, it appears set to be another difficult encounter for Rudi Garcia's men.
