Nice’s successful Campaign last season saw them finishing in the 4th position and booked them a place in the Europa League group stage. They drawn into group I which consists of Salzburg, Krasnodar and Schalke 04. OGC Nice have started the Ligue 1 impressively, as they have gone unbeaten in their first 4 opening games. They are currently in the 2nd position same points(10) as the leaders Monaco, having won 3 games and drawn 1.

Schalke also booked their Europa League group stage qualification sequel to their 5th place finish last season. Nevertheless, Schalke have struggled in the opening 2 games of the Bundesliga season, as the have lost them both. They are currently in the relegation zone, just above the bottom place Werder Bremen. However, Schalke are undefeated in their last 6 European away games, they will be hoping to maintain this record in this fixture.

Nice vs Schalke: Prediction

If Nice’s recent form is to be considered, they are the favorites in this game. They have won 3 of their last 4 games and drawn 1. Schalke have also kept clean sheets in 2 games, while they have scored in every of their last 4 games. The German side need to change their strategy, they are on 2 game losing streak and have failed to score in their last 2 games.

I’m backing Nice no to lose in this game, I expect them to get at least a draw.

Nice vs Schalke: Bet Tips

Both teams to score at 1.80 (4/5).
