Patrick Vieira’s Nice and Peter Bosz’s Bayer Leverkusen square off in a UEFA Europa League fixture at the Allianz Riviera this Thursday. Slavia Prague are the surprise leaders of Group C, though Leverkusen are level on points with the Czech side at the top. Nice have picked up a mere three points so far and are heading for an early exit from the competition.

Nice Preview – Can the Eagles shock the in-form Germans?

French Ligue 1 side Nice have had a poor Europa League campaign up until now. Having lost 6-2 to Bayer Leverkusen in their opener back in October, Patrick Vieira’s boys hit back with a 1-0 home victory over Hapoel Beer Sheva, with Amine Gouiri netting the only goal of the game.

Since that narrow win over the side from Israel, Nice have gone on to lose back-to-back Group C games to Slavia Prague. After a 3-2 loss in the Czech Republic capital, the Eagles were beaten 3-1 by Prague at the Allianz Riviera last Thursday.

Our betting prediction:
Leverkusen to be winning at half time & full time

(odds taken 1447 GMT, Wednesday 2 December)

Nice, who have lost four league and cup games on the spin, need a massive swing in fortunes to turn a six-point deficit around with two games to go. Only a big win will take it to the final day. The home victory is available at 17/4.

Bayer Leverkusen Preview – Leverkusen to book their spot in the last 32?

Peter Bosz’s Bayer Leverkusen impressed in the Europa League last season, reaching the quarter-final stage. Leverkusen were among the favourites to win this season’s tournament before a ball was kicked, and the Bundesliga side have looked good so far.

Having lost to Slavia in Prague, Bayer Leverkusen sit second behind the Czechs, with both teams taking nine points from a possible 12. On opening night, the German outfit thumped Nice 6-2, with Karim Bellarabi helping himself to a brace. After the loss in Prague, Leverkusen have secured back-to-back wins over Beer Sheva.

No side in this season’s Europa League have scored more than Bayer up until now. Bosz’s boys have netted an impressive 14 goals in just four matches. Three points in France on Thursday will see them safely through to the knockout rounds.


Nice vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Advice

Leverkusen ran riot when the two teams squared off at the BayArena in the reverse game. As we mentioned, Bellarabi grabbed a brace, while there were also goals for Nadiem Amiri, Lucas Alario, Moussa Diaby and Florian Wirtz.


Key Facts – Nice vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tip

  • Leverkusen hammered Nice 6-2 in Germany in the reverse match a couple of months back
  • Bayer have won five of their last six in all competitions
  • Nice have lost four league and cup matches in a row


Although the margin of victory will surely be smaller, we fancy Leverkusen to do the double over Nice on Thursday. You can get the decent price of 19/10 (Unibet) for the away team to win -1.

Bellarabi’s two efforts against Nice in October remain his only two goals this term. Nevertheless, we like the look of 7/1 for 30-year-old to open the scoring at the Allianz Riviera on Thursday.
