The second half of the season starts here…

Two weeks after the draw with Reims (0-0), Dante and his teammates are about to embark on the second half of the season at Lille on Sunday (1pm CET). With 19 games to go and 57 points at stake, the Niçois will also try to extend their European adventure in early 2023. We take a look at what's in store for the Red-and-Blacks.


After a weekend without a game, Didier Digard's men are back at the Allianz Riviera to face LOSC, 6th in Ligue 1 — on 34 points, 9 more than the Aiglons — before three days later going to see their opponent's neighbours, RC Lens, in second place behind PSG right now on 44 points. The week will conclude with a trip to third-placed Marseille, who are on a run of six straight wins at the moment.

After that, there are two big home games: Le Gym face Ajaccio and then Reims, just a month after the goallless draw in the Champagne region, before the short trip to Monaco in the last week in February.
