Nantes vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4 April 2021
Kick-off at 13:00 UK/ 14:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire.
The Yellow House are one of the worst teams in the competition, and understandably are placed 19th in the table. They have won just five times so far in the league this campaign, and are also a major contender to get relegated at the end of the season.
They are on a long winless streak at present, and are letting in goals in huge numbers. Moreover, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival in recent times.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have noticeably improved their form lately. They are recording wins at an impressive rate, and are also scoring goals in plenty.
And on the road, they have performed well in the past several months, barring some of the best teams in the French top flight.
By the looks of things, expect Nice to have the upper hand this Sunday.
Nantes vs Nice: Head-to-head (h2h)

Nantes vs Nice Prediction
Antoine Kombouare’s men recorded a 1-1 draw the last match-day at home, against Lorient. In the meantime, the Eagles registered a 3-0 win at home the past game week, against Marseille.
Going on, the Yellow House were winless in 20 of their past 22 overall fixtures, and they have a single clean sheet from these 22 games. Going on, they are also on a 13-match winless streak at home, and have won just twice at home since December of 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in four of their preceding five overall fixtures, and they had also won three of these. In fact, they had scored two or more goals in three of these five matches.
In addition, they have failed to find the back of the net away from home just once in 2021, despite having taken on the likes of PSG, Marseille, Monaco etc.
In addition, Ursea’s men also have an impressive h2h record against this foe in recent seasons.
Considering these observations, expect Nice to secure the three points this Sunday.
