Strasbourg vs Nice Prediction
The hosts have been succumbing to back to back defeats in their last two games. The most recent of which, was against Marseille by a 2-0 scorecard. Thierry Laurey’s men have now slumped to the bottom of the ladder with just nine points from a possible thirty.
Be that as it may, it is certainly worth noting that four of the five defeats that Strasbourg have suffered so far have come from their trips on the road. At home, the hosts have been exhibiting a lot more conviction and are sporting an impressive two-match winning streak as well.
Meanwhile, Nice have hardly been faring any better in the top flight and are without a win in their last four games. Their previous fixture on home soil saw them humbled by the reigning champions, prior to which they lost to Nantes on the road.
Furthermore, the visitors have returned empty-handed in each of their last three trips on the road in the league. The guests have not got the better of this foe in any of their previous two visits to this venue either.
Hence, despite Strasbourg dwelling way below Nice on the ladder at the moment, the home team’s solid form here gives the visiting contingent little or no chance or salvaging even a point from this tie.
Additionally, the guests have hardly been a threat in front of goal in their outings and have found the back of the net just twice in their last three clashes. Nice, on the other hand, have been adamant in their defensive third. They have conceded no more than three times from their previous three games here.
Given all of their last four head to head meetings here have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, by all means, count on a low scoring affair to unfold this weekend.
