Nice vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: 23 October 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:05 UK / 17:05 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nantes ended their seven-game winless thread across competitions in some style, putting four goals past Brest in a demolishing home win last Sunday.
Les Canaris fired on all cylinders on the occasion with four separate goalscorers and even one penalty-kick missed on the occasion.
The 4-1 win over Brest came out of nowhere if we know that Nantes had previous lost four consecutive matches in all competitions.
These were not ordinary losses, but defeats in which they have conceded at least two goals in each, while netting only a single in total at the opposite end.
Nevertheless, Antoine Kombouare’s troops have gained some momentum with the thumping of Brest and they are ready to repeat this display on Sunday afternoon in the away fixture against Nice at Allianz Riviera.
Nice have been anything but impressive so far in the season, offering hot and cold performances since the very opening round.
Lucien Favre’s men came up with a disappointingly toothless performance in a 1-1 draw away at Auxerre seven days ago.
They have done nothing to hurt the rivaling keeper since the early goal from their top scorer Andy Delort on the occasion.
Nice certainly do possess a strong offensive potential which they showed in the previous home match, beating Troyes 3-2 two weeks ago.
