Nice vs Strasbourg
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 16 May 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera.
Nice are going through a good run at home, and even though they have ruled out a European berth, the team would want to finish out their campaign on a positive note. And considering the struggles of Strasbourg, expect a win for the hosts of the day.
Strasbourg are one of the only two squads in the whole competition to stay winless in the last five games, and they also are trying to avoid relegation.
As of now they are placed 16th in the table, and have a lead of just one point over the relegation cut-off. They are also conceding goals in huge numbers, and on the road it’s been quite some time since they have shown any consistency.
Meanwhile, Nice are scoring well at the moment, and it seems like they have ensured a top-ten finish. In the remaining two game weeks, they would try to secure a top-eight spot.
Going on, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
By the looks of things, expect a Nice victory this Sunday.
