Nice vs Basel Top Predictions and Best Odds

Nice is depleted for the return leg of the Conference League quarterfinal against Basel with many important players sidelined through various injuries.

Both Teams to Score

The first leg ended with a 2-2 result, but that is not the only reason why this is the pick for the first Nice vs Basel prediction. The home team is missing as many as eight important players and that is the reason why coach Didier Digard rested his star strikers Terem Moffi and Gaetan Laborde, over fears of further injuries. Nice has played three BTTS games out of the last five while Basel is in the middle of a four-match streak when both teams scored at least a goal.

Nice to Win

Despite all the problems Nice has with injuries, the confidence will be brought by their starting strikers duo Moffi-Laborde. Ahead of the Nice vs Basel match, both have been on high alert regarding their team's misfortune in the past five games where they failed to win a game. The last time Nice took home a victory was against Sheriff Tiraspol, and since then they have dropped a significant number of points in Ligue 1, so the only road toward any kind of success this season leads through the Conference League.

Nice vs Basel Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Nice

The Riviera team has been dropping points all over the place, and it is quite remarkable how they suddenly dropped in form while playing so well under the guidance of new coach Didier Digard. But, it seems the honeymoon period is over and now the team needs to figure out how to get out of trouble. Over the weekend they lost once again in Ligue 1, this time to Brest and they are now without a win for the last five matches. The last victory was earned over a month ago against Sheriff Tiraspol in the last 16 rounds of the Conference League. To make matters worse, there is a huge injured list at the club: Youssouf Ndayishimiye, Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Beka Beka, Nicolas Pepe, Mattia Viti, Jordan Lotomba, Sofiane Diop, and Youcef Atal are all out for the upcoming match.

Provisional lineup: Schmeichel, Rosario, Dante, Amraoui, Mendy, Thuram, Belahyane, Bard, Barkley, Laborde, Moffi.

Basel

The Swiss side played a derby match in their domestic league drawing against the best team in the country Young Boys which will give them some additional confidence ahead of the return leg. The team has a hope that with the injury issues Nice has, they can come up with a surprise result, just like they managed to do on their home turf by drawing 2-2 in the first leg. Riccardo Calafiori and Fabian Frei are out of the match this week.

Provisional lineup: Salvi, Pelmard, Adams, Lopez, Xhaka, Millar, Essiam, Males, Kade, Augustin, Zeqiri.
