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.
