Nice vs Nantes Prediction & Match Preview

Nice vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 3rd October 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera.

Nice will play Nantes on Saturday evening and the home side come into this match in 10th place, they are six points behind the league leaders Rennes.

Nice started the season well but have fallen off in recent weeks and have not recorded a win since the end of August that goes back the last three matches. The clubs last game ended 0-0 away to Bordeaux, at home they have lost to PSG and beat Lens.

Nantes are in 15th place but would go past Nice with a win here. The Canaries come into this game with poor form with no wins in their last 3 and their last match ended in a loss against Lille. They have also lost against Monaco away from home and are yet to get a win on the road.

Whilst other teams have conceded more than Nantes they are still shipping in too many goals and their defence will have to be looked at, Nice will believe that they will have many chances in this game to test the club.

Nice vs Nantes: Head to Head

  • Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
  • 6 from the last seven league games between the two clubs have seen both teams to score.
  • Nantes have not won at this ground since 2015 which was their only win in the last 15 years.

Nice vs Nantes: Prediction

We expect Nice to get a very close win. This is a game where much of the play will take place in the middle of the field, but both sides will have opportunities.

Nantes have not travelled well so far this season and to add to this they have a poor record coming here, so this adds to our thoughts that Nice can win this match, also Nice are really due a win and when it comes this is likely to be at home.

We will also back both teams to score which has a fantastic strike rate to come in between these two sides.

Nice vs Nantes Bet Tips:

  • Nice to beat Nantes at 2.50 (6/4)
  • Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5).
