Nantes vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday 25th September 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes and Nice will come together at the weekend and both will be in search of much needed wins after their starts to the new Ligue 1 campaign.
Nantes have just one win this season and lost again at the weekend this time to Lille in a match that finished 2-1. They are in 17th place despite a couple of draws and remain quite unpredictable.
At home is where it really hurts for the fans of Nantes as they have yet to see their team win with a loss against Monaco followed by two draws against Caen and Reims respectively.
Nice have had quite a start to the season with new coach Patrick Vieira feeling all of the emotions in a bumpy first month. Nantes would go in front of Nice in the league with a win on Tuesday night. As for Nice they have 2 wins and 2 losses in the last 4 games. Away from home they have one win, one loss and one draw and so at this stage it is hard to judge what their overall performances on the road will be like.
Nantes vs Nice: Head to Head
- Last season Nice won this fixture 2-1.
- Nice only have 2 wins at Nantes in the last 13 years.
- The last 4 meetings have a 100% success rate to see both teams to score.
Nantes vs Nice: Prediction
This game has the potential to be exciting as both teams really have little to lose here. This is a tough game for Nice even if their coach is under some pressure at the same time both teams are low in the league and need a win here which could boost them near the top 10.
Our main bet will be to see both teams to score, history confirms this but it is also the fact that we will see something more like a cup game and end to end football. We will also back Emiliano Sala for Nantes to find a goal.
Nantes vs Nice: Bet Tips
Both teams to score at 1.91 (10/11)
Anytime goalscorer: Emiliano Sala (Nantes) at 2.20 (6/5).
