Reason For Nice VS Nancy Betting Tips
Nice remain firmly in the Ligue 1 title hunt ahead of this weekend’s game but will face a Nancy side fighting for their lives. The away side upset the form book with a brilliant 3-0 victory at home to Rennes on Saturday and are now out of the bottom 3 on goal difference. But they will surely find it difficult to follow that up against one of the division’s best sides who have only lost 2 matches, the lowest of any team in the top flight, this campaign.
Nice have been one of the surprise packages this season, but they are 3rd in the table entirely on merit. Not among the highest scorers, they have a solid defence and match winners aplenty in their team. Mario Balotelli is emerging as one such player. The Italian international’s excellent double in last Friday night’s 2-1 win over Lille were his first strikes away from home for Nice since joining the club. With the continued absence of Alassane Plea, who has 11 goals, the former Liverpool hit-man will have to keep up that form if his team are to overhaul Monaco and PSG to land the league championship.
Things looked bleak for Nancy before last weekend, but a 3-0 win over low scorers Rennes will have given them new confidence ahead of the vitally important weeks ahead. They remain the team with the fewest goals in Ligue 1, having notched just 24 from their 32 matches. Issiar Dia bagged a brace last weekend and he will be needed in the final 6 games if Nancy are to avoid the drop.
Despite last weekend’s result for Nancy, we see Nice winning this one. Our advice is to back them to keep a clean sheet at odds of 11/10 with bet365.
Our correct score prediction for them to win the match is 2-0. That bet is at odds of 6/1 also with bet365.
