Nice vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
The international break did not interrupt Nice’s hot run of form at all as Les Aiglons made it five wins on the bounce easing past the 4th-placed Lille 2-0 at home. Wylan Cyprien and Allan Saint-Maximin inspired the victory with a goal apiece helping their team climb up to the 7th place in the Ligue 1 ladder. Patrick Vieira found the winning formula shifting to a 3-5-2 formation with Mario Balotelli and Saint-Maximin as a pair of forwards.
The three-man defense is doing miracles for Vieira whose side did not concede a single goal for more than 360 minutes in Ligue 1. Les Aiglons will have a nice chance to keep climbing up the league table with success on Tuesday evening when they host Angers at Allianz Riviera.

Nice vs Angers: Prediction
The visitors are six points behind in 14th at the moment, but they do tend to concede loads, especially on travels. It should give the likes of Balotelli and Saint-Maximin plenty of room to create in the final third as we expect to see another pleasant evening for the local fans at Allianz Riviera.
Les Aiglons have been very tough to break down of late, especially in front of the home crowd. They won three and lost two of past five home matches, but defeats came against the likes of PSG (0-3) and Olympique Marseille (0-1).
Angesr are winless in last four matches on the road, a streak which includes a 4-3 defeat to Saint-Etienne a month ago at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. Nice are well worth backing to keep the splendid run of form going and break into the top-six in the league ladder.
