Nice vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th May 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveria (Nice).
There will be no European football for Nice but the club keep battling and have had a good solid season under Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira. They are in 7th place and could realistically finish in 5th place with a good run. They come into this game with just one defeat in their last five and their last match ended in a positive 1-1 draw away to champions PSG.
At home Nice have won 10 points from their last 15 and have become a hard team to beat winning 9 of their 17 games so far. What has been impressive is that they have only conceded 13 goals all season at home and everyone is aware that they have a very special goal keeper in Walter Benitez who is rumoured to be on many of Europe’s elite wish lists.
Nantes would be 1st in the league based on their latest form. They have been simply sensational in recent weeks beating the likes of PSG, Lyon and Marseille. They have won their last 5 games in a row and their objective is clear to finish in the top 10 after a poor first half to the season.
Despite great recent form their away record is still a poor one and they have lost 10 games this season. Their last away match ended in a win over Marseille but this seems like a rare occurrence, and it is questionable if the team can be trusted on the road.

Nice vs Nantes: Prediction
Nantes have been in superb form beating teams that are much better than them. But all records and wins come to an end and we can see Nice having the qualities to defeat Nantes. Even though Nantes have been in good form with 5 wins in a row, 4 of those have happened at home and they have had some luck with the way the fixtures have fallen. Nice have become a difficult side to beat at home and Nantes have never travelled well coming here.
