Nice vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 21st October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
It’s been an interesting time for Patrick Vieira’s Nice side and his debut season as a manager in his homeland of France.
Nice have won 3 games this season but have lost 4 and haven’t really found any consistency; which has been their biggest problem. Because of this they come into this game in 12th place.
Vieira’s men are currently on a 2 match win-less run, having lost to PSG and then held to a draw to Toulouse away from home.
At the Allianz Riveria, they have a poor record with 3 of the 4 games played resulting in defeats and won just one. That win came against Rennes when they saw that game through 2-1.
Marseille are in 3rd place and their challenge will be to finish in a Champions League position for this season. Form has been up and down much like their hosts where they have won 2 and lost 2 from their last four games.
It is very clear that Marseille have been superb at home so far but are the 2nd to worst team in the league when playing away. They have just 1 win from 4 played and have conceded a whopping 12 goals, that’s 3 goals per game.
Nice vs Marseille: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here Marseille won 4-2.
- Home or away Marseille have won the last 3 meetings.
- The last 4 meetings have a 100% success rate to see over 2.5 goals.
Nice vs Marseille: Prediction
Nice are not where they need to be and there will have to be a lot more ground work and training for them to be consistent.
Marseille represents a very tough match for the team and even though Marseille have been poor away from home they should have enough quality to win this game.
Our main bet will be to back the away side at decent odds and we will also back the over goals market.
We should see a very exciting game with many opportunities for both teams.
