After a 1-0 defeat in Strasbourg (30th day of Ligue 1), the RC Lens faces a big piece again with the reception of Nice on Sunday (31st day of Ligue 1, 17:05, to be followed live on Lensois.com and broadcast in full on Canal + Sport). Nice are on a slightly more difficult momentum right now with 3 games without a win.
They drew 0-0 in Montpellier, a 2-1 defeat in Marseille and then a 1-1 draw at home 1-1 against Rennes. The Eagles are currently looking for more offensive binders. Before the match, coach Christophe Galtier commented:
« We insist on training. There was a small draft against Rennes but it will take a lot more and to have a lot more, you have to work on it in training and put it in place in the game. There are different offensive profiles. We need to lean on it but we need a presence on the surface. It will also take more animation, on the left side, it is necessary that Amine (Gouiri) finds her landmarks in this animation and this is what we have been working on for some time. It seems to me that we are in the same state with the RC Lens. It will be important for us to win, as it will be for them. We will be in a full stadium with a very big atmosphere. A positive result would be really welcome to continue to project itself up the rankings. This is an important match and it would be auspicious to win. »
