Preview: Possibly with one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League tie in Madrid, are PSG vulnerable favourites ahead of their visit to Allianz Riviera to take on a Nice outfit which has twice shown it can hold its own against the Parisians this term.

Nice – Can Les Aiglons make it four home wins out of five?

Despite suffering a dip in form which has seen them fail to pick up maximum Ligue 1 points in three of the last four rounds, this season retains the potential to go down as one of the club’s more memorable in recent times – not that the bar is set high. Tuesday’s 2-0 Coupe de France victory over fourth tier Versailles means they are already assured a shot at silverware, but it is Champions League football they crave most.

Ahead of hosting the runaway leaders, Christophe Galtier’s side are currently in possession of third and a play-off route into Europe’s premier club competition. Defeat to PSG, however, could see them end the week outside the top-three. So while recent form has been patchy, three wins out of the last four at their Allianz Riviera hub can inspire belief of a first home win in this fixture for nearly five years.

Key Stat: In their latest two Ligue 1 fixtures – drawing 0-0 at Strasbourg and edging out Angers 1-0 at home – Nice recorded successive clean sheets for the first time since September.


Under 2.5 Goals



PSG – Distracted champions-elect looking vulnerable?

Having established an insurmountable 15-point lead atop Ligue 1 and with a slender one-goal advantage to protect in Spain on Wednesday in the second leg of their Champions League last sixteen tie with Real Madrid, the temptation for Mauricio Pochettino to shuffle his pack could prove too much. Irrespective of any changes, Ligue 1 frontrunners PSG appear to have their work cut out in the south of France.

That huge lead has been built on some wholly unconvincing displays, often reliant on late goals and an reinforcements off the bench to spare their blushes. This has been especially true on their travels where they have fallen behind on recent visits to Lens, Lorient, Lyon and Nantes and failed to win them all (D3 L1). With a league-best 92% win rate in Paris falling steeply to just 54% (W7 D4 L2) when outside the capital.

Key Stat: Since the start of this season, PSG have registered only two clean sheets in 13 Ligue 1 away games, conceding at least once in each of the last seven league contests away from the Parc des Princes.

Nice Vs PSG Betting Advice

Not since a 3-1 win in April 2017 has Nice bested PSG in Ligue 1, losing six of eight subsequent matches. Yet December’s goalless draw at the Parc des Princes coupled with their Coupe de France penalty shootout success in January means Les Aiglons are making positive strides in their efforts to compete with the country’s finest. They are an enticing odds against price to make it three head-to-heads unbeaten.


Nice Vs PSG – Key Facts:

  • A third competitive meeting of the season between these sides sees Nice seeking to remain unbeaten versus PSG in 2021-22. Both encounters ended 0-0, though Nice won through on penalties in January’s Coupe de France clash.
  • Could Nice be primed for a famous outcome? They boast three wins in four Ligue 1 home games (L1) facing a PSG which has one only once in its past five away league games (D3 L1).
  • There has been Under 2.5 Goals in each of the past five Nice league games. However, all of PSG’s seven previous away league games saw both teams find the net.


At 7/2, could Nice go even further and claim a memorable victory? Three wins from their last four at Allianz Riviera – all via one-goal margins – hints a team in the groove on home soil. PSG, meanwhile, have stumbled once too often on the road of late and arrive in the south of France posting figures of W1 D3 L1 across their last five away Ligue 1 outings. With a trip to Spain also on the horizon, PSG are worth opposing at odds-on.
