Today's Predictions for Nice vs Ajaccio

Nice have won four of their last five assignments in Ligue 1 ahead of their clash with Ajaccio on Friday evening. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Nice to Win

Nice are finally starting to strut their stuff in Ligue 1 and their superb 3-1 win at Marseille last time out was their fourth victory in five league matches since early January. With Nice in such red-hot form a date with relegation candidates Ajaccio should be much easier to navigate and Didier Digard’s troops are priced as odds-on favourites to triumph again. There is still enough value on offer in the match result market to make it a goer however, and our first prediction recommends siding with the hosts in that direction.

Gaetan Laborde to Score Anytime

Nice’s spike in form has coincided with a Gaetan Laborde hot streak and the attacker has managed to rattle the net in each of his last three appearances in Ligue 1. The 28-year-old finished well against a trio of big hitters in Lille, Lens and Marseille, and the confident forwards should have more chances to add to his tally for the campaign when he lines up against Ajaccio on Friday.

Nice vs Ajaccio Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Friday’s Ligue 1 meeting between Nice and Ajaccio below.

Nice

Nicolas Pepe is still sidelined for Nice with a knee injury, while defender Youcef Atal has a hamstring issue and will sit out the next couple of weeks. Back-up keeper Marcin Bulka is out with a shoulder problem. Nice's excellent 3-1 win at Marseille felt like a significant moment and a top five finish suddenly seems like a possibility this term.

Predicted Lineup for Nice: Schmeichel – Lotomba, Todibo, Dante, Bard – Ramsey, Ndayishimiye, Thuram – Labourde, Diop, Moffi

Ajaccio

Ajaccio will be without suspended duo Ismael Diallo and Vincent Marchetti this week, while Thomas Mangani, Yoann Touzghar, Youssouf Kone and Mathieu Coutadeur are all out injured. Ajaccio are still in the drop zone in Ligue 1 following their 2-0 loss at home to Nantes last weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Ajaccio: Leroy – Youssouf, Gonzalez, Avinel, Alphonse – Bayala, Vidal, Chabrolle, Barreto – El Idrissy, Belaili

Player to Watch – Terem Moffi

Nice signed prolific striker Terem Moffi from Lorient in the final throes of the January transfer window in a clever deal that allowed them to take the Nigerian on loan until the end of the season before an obligation to buy clause is activated. Moffi, who had scored 12 times in Ligue 1 for Lorient this term, made his debut at Marseille last weekend and he will be itching to score his first goal on his home debut on Friday.
