Nice Prediction – Can Nice win three on trot?

Nice have picked up where they left off last season in Ligue 1 as they’ve registered back-to-back wins to start their new French top flight campaign off in positive fashion, collecting 6 points from their first two matches of the new season.

Wednesday night’s hosts finished last season’s campaign on a high note when they recorded a 2-0 home win against troubled Monaco, and with wins over Amiens 2-1 at home and a 2-1 win away from home at Nimes, Nice possess a welcome 100% record heading into this Wednesday night clash with Marseille.

The hosts ended last season with a fairly solid looking home record which stood at 10-4-5 19/14 which included a 4-match unbeaten sequence at their Allianz Riviera to end their season on home turf in a stubborn manner.

Previous history appears to be against Nice heading into this clash with Marseille as the visitors have won the last 5 encounters between the two teams. but Nice will take heart from their opening two wins on the trot this term.

Marseille Prediction – Can Marseille continue dominance over Nice?

The visitors ended last season in a disappointing 5th place which resulted in Marseille missing out on European football of any kind this season as they were 5 points adrift of 4th placed Saint-Etienne when the Ligue 1 season closed.

This new season hasn’t started well for Marseille either as the visitors have gained just 1 point from their opening two matches of this new French top flight campaign, after losing their season opener 2-0 at home to Reims, but then grabbed a point in a 0-0 stalemate away from home at Nantes last time out.

Nevertheless, with just 2 wins out of their last 7 matches overall in Ligue 1, Marseille seem far from guaranteed of taking all three points in this Wednesday encounter, although they too have put together a 4-match unbeaten run away from home in the top flight.

Wins at Guingamp and Toulouse towards the end of last season along with points on the road at Strasbourg and Nantes will give Marseille belief that they can get something from this clash at the Allianz Riviera and perhaps also continue their dominance over Nice.


Key-Facts – Nice v Marseille

  • Nice are unbeaten in their last 4 matches at home in Ligue 1
  • Marseille have won just 2 of their last 7 matches overall in Ligue 1
  • Marseille have won the last 5 meetings on the trot against Nice


Betting Tips Verdict

Marseille have held the upper hand over Nice for some time but Nice have made a good start to this new campaign and should at least grab a point here.
