Our Free Match Predictions for Nantes vs Nice

Our bias-free and well-researched predictions for Nantes vs Nice fixture are as follows:

Odds from Grosvenor Sport are subject to change.

Nantes to draw or win

Our first pick is a risky one but highly probable. Nantes comes to this fixture with back to back losses before the international break while Nice bagged two consecutive victories in the same period. We believe a break was much welcomed, especially by the hosts who needed to re-strategize after a start in the new season. With that, we expect a spirited fight by the hosts against in-form Nice.

Both teams will score

Our second pick is goals on both ends of the pitch. We don’t want to underestimate the hosts, especially based on H2H information between these teams. H2H record shows that these teams are fierce opponents. However, because Nice is having a good run, scoring in this game is very likely.

Nice to open the scoring

There is a real chance that Nice will open the scoring in this game. Nantes has a troubled defence to worry about unless head coach. The hosts have kept only one clean sheet in the first four games. On the flipside, Nice has three clean sheets in the first three games, two of which were clean sheet wins. A strong defence plus good attacking makes Nice our favourite to open the scoring in this match.

Game Preview: Nantes Hoping to Recoup Some Points after the International Break

A poor start to the new season has been costly for Nantes. The hosts have failed to inspire even with four games played. They have 1W, 1D and 2L. On the other hand, Nice has 2W and 1D coming to this fixture. A stronger defence has earned Nice three clean sheets in the first three games. The visitors have a game in hand because the match against Marseille was cancelled after fans disrupted it. In this game, everything boils down to how the managers of both sides have prepared for the big day. For Nantes head coach, coming back from the international has given the hosts the much-needed reprieve and a desire to revenge against Nice after losing twice against the visitors is in the cards.
