Nice vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th September 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera.
Sunday lunchtime will see a very interesting game between Nice and PSG.
Nice won their opening two games and had started with a mission playing good football and scoring goals. Although playing Montpellier away from home was a step too far and the club lost that game last weekend 3-1. That result shot them down to 6th place and now they will be facing one of their most difficult opponents of the season.
PSG have had a poor start by their standards losing 2 of their first 3 games. The bad news is that Neymar will be missing from this game because he was sent off, but the good news is that Kylian Mbappe will return and that will be a big boost to a team who can still boast Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi in their team.
This is a big game for PSG who must find a win to keep touch with the likes of Saint Etienne, Rennes and Monaco.

Nice vs PSG Prediction
Nice have a poor record over PSG and they will be thinking that they have a chance in this game since PSG have been rusty and got off to a slow start and of course there is no Neymar.
But Mbappe is back and PSG should not be underestimated. Saint Etienne have won again which means that PSG enter this game six points behind them and they will be determined to win this game.
Nice could make the mistake to come forward to often and leave gaps at the back and this could be the game where PSG announce themselves as being back in Ligue 1 this season.
PSG to beat Nice at 1.44 (2/5)
Over 2.5 goals at 1.72 (8/11)
PSG to score 3+ goals at 2.75 (7/4).
