Nice vs Salzburg
UEFA Europa League – Group I
Date: Thursday, 3rd November 2016,
Kick-Off at 20:05 UK
Venue: Allianz Riviera, Nice.
Nice are playing some marvellous football under Lucien Favre this season. The team from Allianz Riviera is the current leader in Ligue 1 and are six points clear ahead of the second placed Monaco. Nice are on an incredible run of five straight wins in all competitions. However, the European campaign could have been somewhat better as the team took no more than three points from three opening rounds. They suffered a real disaster in the second round of the competition when they conceded as many as five goals in Russia to Krasnodar.
Salzburg is slowly getting back among the top teams in Austrian Bundesliga. They are currently sitting at the 3rd position after a slower start to the campaign. The team led by Spanish manager Oscar Garcia took three straight victories over St. Polten and Ried in league, and Floridsdorfer in the cup competition.
Nice vs Salzburg: Head-to-Head Stats
The tams faced each other for the first time ever two weeks ago when Nice took the first win of the Europa League campaign. The young striker Alassane Plea scored only goal of the match at the Red Bull Arena on 20th October 2016.
Nice vs Salzburg: Prediction
Nice are 6/7 to win the match which surely represents a decent value knowing that the victory would get them back in the game for the top two position contest. The win in the first match over Salzburg will surely give those wings and we would advise you to take the home win bet for higher stakes.
It will be interesting to see if Favre will give opportunity to Mario Balotelli up front. Super Mario scored as many as six goals so far in Ligue 1 and he could cause damage among Salzburg’s defenders on Thursday evening for sure!
