Nice vs Marseille Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Marseille will be aiming to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they travel to the Allianz Riviera to take on Nice on Sunday night. Nice fought back from two-goals down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Angers thanks to a penalty-goal from Mario Balotelli and an own-goal from Ismael Traore. On the other hand, Marseille picked up a comfortable 2-0 home win over Toulouse last time out in Ligue 1 thanks to goals from Florian Thauvin and Lucas Ocampos. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen goals at both ends of the pitch and I think this will be the case in this one as well. I’m also fancying Nice to secure at least one point in this one as they are unbeaten in three home games at the moment and they are also undefeated in the last four home meetings with Marseille in Ligue 1.

Nice Preview

Nice have struggled for fluency in this early part of the season, but their recent run of form has been excellent. They have won four and draw one of their last five games across all competitions, including a 3-0 home victory over Vitesse in their Europa League midweek clash. Nice now sit at the top of the group K table tied on six points with the second-placed Lazio, scoring eight goals in this term. Actually, Nice have been incredibly strong in front of the goal over the past three weeks, having scored at least two goals in four of these. Nice find themselves in 9th spot in the league table with ten points to their name after seven rounds, three points behind the top five and their Sunday’s opponents Marseille. At home, Nice are unbeaten in three home games across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Nice are undefeated in the last four home meetings with Marseille in Ligue 1, winning three in the process. Their last season’s topscorer in the shape of Mario Balotelli and Alassane Pleave have both enjoyed another strong start to the season, bagging seven goals and one assist between them.

Nice Team News

Mounir Obbadi and Mickael Le Bihan are both doubts, but Wylan Cyprien is out through injury.

Marseille Preview

Marseille have picked up back-to-back 2-0 wins over Amiens and Toulouse in Ligue 1 recently, but they suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat on the road at Salzburg in their Europa League midweek clash. This leaves them in second spot in the group I table tied on three points with the third-placed Konyaspor, just one point behind the current leaders Salzburg. Prior to their midweek loss at the hands of the Austrians, OM managed to keep three consecutive clean sheets. Away from home, Marseille have only won once in their last four games across all competitions and have only scored four goals in the process. The most worrying thing is that OM are winless in their last four visits to the Allianz Riviera, losing three in the process. However, OM did well to beat Nice 2-1 at home in the most recent two meetings between these two sides. Marseille find themselves in 5th position in the league table tied on 13 points with the 6th-placed Nantes, just six points behind the current leaders Paris Saint Germain. Clinton N’Jie has been in good shape in this early part of the season, helping the team with five goals and one assist in his five league appearances.
