Nice vs Nice kick off our Round 21 French Ligue 1 predictions. These teams last met in September 2021, a match that Nice won 2-0 away from home. Will Nantes pull up their socks and turn the tables to secure some points after losing the reverse fixture? Read on to find out what we have to say about this important game.

Our Free Predictions for Nice vs Nantes

A 2-0 defeat at home in the reverse fixture left Nantes players licking their wounds. But after recent turnaround in performance, Nantes may very well walk away with all points in this match. Antoine Kombouare’s men have stepped up their performance, going unbeaten in the last six games. But do they stand a chance against an equally strong Nice? Let’s find out.

Fewer than three goals @ 18/25 (1.72)

This fixture should yield few goals, if any. These teams are in top form. Nice sit 2nd on Ligue 1 table and keeping that position should be top of the agenda for head coach, Galtier. On the flipside, Nantes has put behind them troubled defence that nearly saw them relegated last season and are currently the most improved team in Ligue 1. Two clean sheets for the hosts in the last five games and four for Nantes in as many run of matches is why we think this game will have few goals.

Half-time draw @11/10 (2.10)

Our second tip backs a draw at the break. We expect a defensive game from the onset in this Nice vs Nantes fixture. Both teams have a strong defence so a draw in the first forty-five minutes should be a probable outcome on matchday.

Nice vs Nantes Match Preview, Lineups and Team News

A few players on both sides are expected to miss this game on Friday. On the hosts’ side, Bambu is out with an Ankle injury and should return in mid-January while Schneiderlin is serving a suspension. Nantes will also miss the services of Lemina and Atal who are currently participating in the African Cup of Nations.

The last five meetings between these teams saw Nice bag 3W, 1D and 1L. Thus, the hosts are presumably the favourites in this game. Moreover, Nice bagged four consecutive victories, two of which came with a clean sheet before this fixture. On the other hand, Nantes has four consecutive clean sheets in their last four games, two regular time wins and two barren draws. With that, the visitors will most rely on their defensive prowess to get a result in Nice.

Nice predicted lineup: Benitez, Lotomba, Tadibo, Dante, Daniliuc, Boudaoui, Rosario, Kluivert, Dolberg, Gouiri and Smith.

Nantes will be without Traore, Castelleto, Coulibaly and Simon who are away on international duty at the AFCON in Cameroon. Cyprien is still out with hamstring injury.

Nantes predicted lineup: Lafont, Fabio, Appiah, Pallois, Girotto, Merlin, De Sa, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Blas and Muani.
