Nice vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 29th September 2018
Kick off at 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
Nice and PSG feels like a glamour tie but both teams will be aiming for different projects this season. For PSG it is to win titles for Nice it will be to finish in a place that qualifies them for European football.
Nice started very slow but now they are finding their way under new manager Patrick Vieira. They have won 3 games from their last 4 matches and have moved up to 11th place. They are just two points behind 2nd place Lyon so it is very close. At home Nice won their first game beating Rennes but they have a poor record so far losing 66% of their games in front of their home fans.
PSG have simply been flawless and have 7 wins from 7 games and have already pulled out an 8 point gap at the top. They are scoring on average over 3 goals a game and away from home they have scored at least 3 goals in each game. In midweek they beat Reims 4-1. The good news for PSG is that Kylian Mbappe will return after serving his 3 game suspension after he was sent off when PSG played Nimes.
Nice vs PSG: Head to Head
- Last season PSG won this game 2-1.
- Since 2012 Nice have just 1 win over PSG.
- For 7 meetings in a row there is a 100% success rate for over 2.5 goals.
Nice vs PSG: Prediction
Nice will be prepared for PSG and will fight for victory or at least a draw. PSG will have one eye on their upcoming Champions League match as they lost their opening game against Liverpool.
Mbappe is back for PSG and could make the difference but we fancy Nice to get something on the handicap betting. We will back the over goals market as there is always goals here and PSG are full of them.
