Le Puy vs Nice: Our top betting tips

Le Puy are struggling in the league right now but this competition has been their respite so far this season. Will that continue here or is facing Nice a step too far?  Find out with our Le Puy vs Nice match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Nice to win with a clean sheet to boot

We kick off our tips for this Coupe de France clash by backing Nice to win without conceding. Backing Nice to win is the easy element of this bet. Sure, they're not in a great place in Ligue 1 but Le Puy are struggling in the Championnat National, which is the third tier where most clubs are only semi-professional. The odds on Nice to win though aren't appealing in the slightest – at least not to us. To make things interesting, we've introduced the ‘to nil' element of our bet. Le Puy have blanked in three of their last four games.

Going south of 2.5 goals

We now look at the total goals market and are betting on an under 2.5 outcome. This allows us to tap into decent odds of 11/10 (2.10) with our preferred bookmaker, 888, and that's a price we feel offers real value. Le Puy have seen three of their last four and each of their last two games go under that 2.5 mark whilst Nice have seen three of their last four competitive games fall under that cut off point as well. With Le Puy likely to deploy a low block in this match to maximise their chances of causing a shock as well, banking on goals galore doesn't feel all that wise – especially not with how the bookies have it priced.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Le Puy odds: 10/1 (11.00) – 9%

Draw odds: 13/3 (5.33) – 19%

Nice odds: 1/5 (1.20) – 83%

Nice haven't been in good form of late but the bookmakers are looking past that and focussing on the chasm of quality between the squads based on the odds. Le Puy are rank outsiders at 10/1 (11.00) whilst even the draw comes with a rather hefty 13/3 (5.33) offer. Nice meanwhile are so heavily odds on that it's barely worth talking about. Despite those strong probabilities attached to a Nice win, goals aren't necessarily expected to flow. Most bookies have under 3.5 goals dropping south of a 1/2 (1.50) price.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Le Puy vs Nice

LePuy

Le Puy haven't had a game for a few weeks now, which has enabled them to get players well rested and, those nursing knocks, back to fitness. They're big outsiders to win here but you can expect them to go with their strongest possible lineup as they look to cause a shock.

Predicted lineup – Millieras (GK), Amiot, Baal, Fredj, Bouriaud, Elogo, Sangare, Seba, Rivera, N'Diaye, Guyot

Nice

Nice should be winning this game with relative ease but their form has been poor and, as such, their confidence won't be sky high. If they make too many changes to the XI this game will become a real banana skin and, as such, we think they'll go with a pretty experienced lineup as they look to inject some momentum into their season.

Predicted lineup – Boulhendi (GK), Todibo, Dante, Rosario, Bard, Lotomba, Barkley, Thuram, Pepe, Boudaoui, Laborde

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Ross Barkley was seen as quite the coup when he joined Nice but things haven't exactly gone to plan for the midfielder who once showed so much promise. He's made 10 appearances for the Ligue 1 side this season but has been in and out of the starting lineup. We can see him starting this game though and, with his experience, he should be bossing this match. If he doesn't, then you feel his career at Nice – and altogether – could be on the slide in a big way within a couple of months.
