Looking at these Nice vs Nantes odds we can see that the hosts are clearly the expected winners and that makes sense since they're battling for a spot in Champions League next season, while Nantes are trying to avoid relegation.

That being said, Nice have been in rough form lately and have won only once in their last seven games in the league, so Nantes have reasons to feel optimistic ahead of this game.

Nice preview: Can they win twice in a row?

After six games in a row without a win, Nice have finally snapped that poor streak with a surprising win over Lens away from home. Thanks to this win, Nice remain tied for the fourth place in the standings and in the fight for a spot in Champions League, but they'll have to keep winning if they want to get there.

When it comes to team news, Khephren Thuram and Pablo Rosario will have to sit this game out to serve their suspensions, while Valentin Rosier and Sofiane Diop are injured at the moment.

Predicted Lineup: Bulka – Lotomba, Todibo, Dante, Bard – Claude-Maurice, Sanson, Traore – Cho, Boga, Moffi

Nantes preview: Hoping to end a losing streak

With three losses in a row, Nantes are now in the relegation zone. At the moment, they sit in a place that would take them into relegation playoffs, but they are also just two points ahead of Metz and five ahead of Clermont. On the other hand, they are just one point behind Montpellier and Lorient, so things could go either way for Nantes until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Moses Simon and Bastien Meupiyou are on the team's injury list at this time.

Predicted Lineup: Lafont – Amian, Castelletto, Comert, Cozza – Sissoko, Augusto, Chirivella – Kadewere, Mohamed, Bamba

Player to watch: Mostafa Mohamed

One of the key players for Nantes this season in Ligue 1, at least on the offensive end, has been Mostafa Mohamed. He is the team's top scorer with seven goals and our player to watch in this game.

Will Mohamed score first?

The forward from Egypt has scored in six Ligue 1 matches this season and in half of those games he was the first goalscorer, so backing him to score first in this game might be worth a punt.
