Nantes vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 5th October 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.

Nantes have been one of the best teams in the league so far this season and come into this game in 3rd place with 16 points. With Angers having to play PSG away in Paris, Nantes will try and seize this opportunity to go in 2nd place.

The club have lost 2 games this season but have won 5 and this includes their last two games beating both Rennes and then Lyon away from home, which was impressive. At home Nantes has the 3rd best record with 3 wins and one draw and that includes winning their last 3 matches in a row.

Nice are in 6th place with 13 points and so in touching distance of their hosts. They could, depending on the score, go past Nantes with a win here.

However whilst Nice started the season very well their recent form has been poor. They have won just 1 game in their last 4, and their last two matches have ended with a defeat against Monaco by 3-1 and a draw 1-1 against Lille. Away from home Nice have won 2 and lost 2, but they come into this game having lost their two matches on the road.

Nantes vs Nice: Head to Head

  • Last season Nice won this game 2-1.
  • Nantes have not beaten Nice the last 3 times they have been at home.
  • The last 6 meetings have seen both teams to score.

Nantes vs Nice: Prediction

We will back the home side to get the win here as they have an objective this season to be very strong at home. They have shown they can score goals and hardly concede and have a good unit and set up now.

Nantes have a massive opportunity to shake up the top 2 clubs coming into this game and being at home, we don’t’ think they will fail on this objective. Home win and Nice could really struggle to get the ball in this game.

Watch out for Kalifa Coulibaly who is due a goal and has played some great football for the home club.

Nantes vs Nice: Betting Tips

  • Nantes to beat Nice at 2.00 (1/1)
