Expectedly enough, the game saw the Normandy side lose 3-0 even though Les Parisiens were without the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

Can the new manager Fabien Mercadal find the way to motivate his lads to pick up points from the first winnable match of the season when they take on Nice on Saturday evening at Stade Michel d’Ornano.

The visitors disappointed heavily in their opener, falling 0-1 at home to recently promoted Reims side.

It was a dreadful debut for Patrick Vieira on Nice’s bench as it seems he will need some time to adjust to the top flight of the French football conditions after spending a couple of years on the American soil.

Caen vs Nice: Head-to-head

  • The draw was by far the most common of the outcomes in the history of head to head matches between these two sides.
  • It happened on 14 occasions in 33 games and on as many as 8 in 17 outings at Stade Michel d’Ornano.
  • Both teams scored in each of last three head to head games, while Nice took four points from last term encounters with Caen.

Caen vs Nice: Prediction

Les Aiglons clearly have massive issues with the efficiency in the final third under Patrick Vieira. Nice failed to score in last three games, including friendlies against Torino and Saint-Etienne.

The French manager was without Mario Balotelli seven days ago and it will be interesting to see if the Italian forward will be in the starting line-up this time about.

It is hard to expect the continuation of the high-scoring trend in H2H games between these two likes given their current form.

The Under 2.5 goals FT looks to be the best of the betting options and you can back it at the odds of 1.57.

Caen vs Nice: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.57 (4/7)
  • Draw at the half time @ 1.98 (1/1).
