Strasbourg vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 26 February 2022
Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 00:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.

Strasbourg did not have the best of starts to the season. However, the team has been a joy to watch since the start of December. The team can push for the 2nd position if they manage to keep up this form.

They were last seen away from home against Saint-Etienne, in a contest that ended with a score line of 2-2. The match notably witnessed all four goals in the first half.

This marked the second time the club had dropped points in four games. Managing to add two points on average in their last five league matches, they now sit four points behind the 2nd place team in fourth position.

Nice dominated Ligue 1 in January winning all their fixtures. However, they started February with back to back losses and are now in real danger of dropping out of the Champions League spots.

In their most recent fixture, they picked up a narrow 1-0 win against bottom half of the table club Angers at home, which came after two consecutive losses.

With nine points from their last five games, the club is now three points ahead of their opponents for this weekend and a point behind the 2nd place team.

Strasbourg vs Nice Head-to-head

  • Le Racing have lost twice in eight previous meetings.
  • The preceding three duels witnessed a score line of two or three goals.
  • The hosts have scored more than a goal just once in their last five h2hh matches at home.

Strasbourg vs Nice Prediction

Nice have delivered impressive defensive performances in away matches throughout the course of the season and as a result, have conceded more than a goal just once in those fixtures this season. Consequently, I believe they should be able to hold Strasbourg to a goal or less.

Six of Nice’s previous seven away fixtures in Ligue 1 have witnessed two or three goals. While five league matches at this venue, this season have also witnessed a similar score line. Hence, I have backed the outcome for this Saturday.
