Nice vs Reims
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 3rd November 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riveria.
Nice started the season very well but are now playing their worst football under coach Patrick Vieira. They are struggling to get results and have lost 4 of their last five matches, gaining just 1 point from their last 15.
This poor form has seen the club drop to 15th. Last weekend they lost against Strasbourg and at home they have 1 win in their past four matches and have gained 7 points from 15. Form is off with the club but with the league so tight they could easily be in the top 10 with a win.
Reims are in 4th place with 18 points and have started the season very well. However, they were poor in drawing against Nimes at home 0-0 last weekend where the club had zero shots on goal. It was the type of performance that could worry investors wanting to back the club, but the truth is they can feel the pressure more from their home fans and then perform quite well away. They have the motivation to try and climb to 3rd place and even 2nd with a win.
Nice vs Reims: Head to Head
- Last season Reims won this fixture 1-0.
- The last 9 meetings have all ended in under 2.5 goals.
- In the last 3 meetings to take place at Nice, they have only beaten Reims once.
Nice vs Reims: Prediction
Nice have a solid unit of players, and we think their poor form is a false dawn and they will bounce back. Reims can be tricky to play and have a very good defensive record, but we think Nice has the quality to bounce back and get a win here.
Reims were poor last weekend and if Nice have done their homework, they will know that the club look very weak on the wings and can’t handle a fast-paced team. This is for Nice to win, and we will be backing them to get all 3 points.
