THE PREDICTION

Nice enjoyed a fairly solid campaign last time out as they finished in fifth place, qualifying for the Europa League group stage in the process, and they will be looking to build on that this season. They certainly weren’t shy of scoring last season as only PSG and Monaco found the net with more regularity and their attack has looked devastating in recent friendlies. This looks to be a tough opener for promoted side Lens then, and it could be a rude awakening for them in the division. Nice found the net in 13 consecutive games in all competitions prior to lockdown so they should be expected to strike first in this encounter.
