Le Mans vs Nice Prediction
The hosts have got off to a dismal start in their domestic campaign and are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder, back in Ligue 2. Richard Dezire’s men are yet to hit the ground running this season and have just three wins to boast of from their last eleven clashes.
It is also worth mentioning that the home side managed to earn progression from the previous round only by the narrowest of margins after their clash with Orleans was forced into penalties after regulation time. Nice are without a doubt a far more superior side in comparison and are likely to be too hot to handle for the hosts.
Although the visitors are on a losing streak of their own at the moment, to their defense, they are currently plying their trade in the top flight of French football as opposed to the hosts who are part of the second division.
Furthermore, Nice have been securing the bragging rights without breaking much of a sweat in their last two visits in a running here. Hence, despite their poor form on the road, Nice are the favorites to pick up the win this week.
Additionally, the away side have not had their scoring boots on in their recent outings and have found the back of the net just twice in their last four. Taking into account that their previous head to head game here also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on Nice to wrap things up with a goal or two at the most.
