Who will win LEN vs NIC Today Match Prediction Football
Lens’ inconsistency has prevented them from breaking into the European places so far, but this game represents a prime opportunity for Haise’s men to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since September. The visitors may have to do without a key player in Thuram, and even though their away form is relatively strong, we are backing Lens to take the spoils. At the end, we predict a 1-0 win for the home outfit in LEN vs NIC today match prediction.
