Nice vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: 14 January 2022, Friday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nice and Nantes will raise the curtain on Gameweek No 21 in Ligue 1 on Friday evening when they come across each other at Allianz Riviera.
Both teams have been enjoying a fine spell of form around the New Year. Nice will thus go into this on the back of three straight victories.
They dispatched Brest 0-3 on the road on Sunday despite playing with ten men on the pitch for more than 70 minutes on the occasion.
Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin got sent off 20 minutes into the game. However, it did not prevent Nice from snatching a 0-3 win, courtesy of goals from Kasper Dolberg, Andy Delort, and Amine Gouiri.
Chris Galtier truly has an exceptional attacking line on disposal with the likes of Dolberg, Delort, Gouiri, and Justin Kluivert.
Gouiri, Delort, and Dolbereg have scored a total of 20 goals combined in this term of Ligue 1. The team notched two or more goals in each of the last three league wins.
Nantes will also enter this tie on a high. They finished last year with three subsequent victories in December.
The winning streak came to an end on Sunday when Les Canaris shared spoils with Monaco in a goalless draw at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.
Nantes rely heavily on defense. They kept three clean sheets in the last four league outings. IT will be very interesting to see how their stubborn back line will cope with Nice’s in-form attack.
Nice vs Nantes Head-to-head
- Nice will enter this match on the back of three consecutive wins over Nantes.
- Nice notched two goals in each of these three victories.
- Nantes won only 3 of the last 16 away outings against Nice.
Nice vs Nantes Prediction
Both teams will enter this game on a high, but Nice have more quality in their ranks and we see them as favorites to extend the three-win streak on Friday on the home patch.
Also, Nice won three on the bounce in H2H clashes against Nantes. The home win has value at the 1.91 odds. Since Nantes played super tight defensively of late, we will alternatively back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.90 odds.
