Nice vs Nancy Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nice will look to close the gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table when they welcome Nancy to the Allianz Riviera on Saturday afternoon. Nice fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-2 victory at Lille last weekend thanks to a first-half brace from Mario Balotelli. On the flip side, Nancy won 3-0 at home over Rennes last time out thanks to a first-half goal from Maurice Dale and a brace from Issiar Dia. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Nice should have no problems in picking up all three points in this one as they are the second joint best home side in the division. I’m also backing Nice to keep a clean sheet here as they have only conceded 12 goals in 16 league games this season, while Nancy have failed to score a single goal in their last five league trips.

Nice Preview

Nice suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat on the road at Monaco a month ago, but they recovered quickly and come into this clash on the back of nine-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1. They registered two disappointing draws in a row against Caen and Nantes in the first half of March, but they bounced back with two impressive victories over Bordeaux and Lille. This means that Nice remain firmly in the Ligue 1 title hunt, as they still sit in third position in the standings, just one point of second-placed Paris Saint-Germain and four points behind the current leaders Monaco. Nice’s secret for their great performances throughout the season has been their solid defence, as they hold the second joint best defensive record in the division with just 26 goals conceded in 32 rounds. Nice can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are the joint best home side in the division, having collected 40 points from a possible 48. Head-to-head, Nice were on a two-game losing streak against Nancy prior to their 0-1 victory in the reverse fixture. Mario Balotelli and Alassane Plea have been Nice’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 25 goals and three assists between them. Wylan Cyprien has also played a decent role in Nice’s performances this season, helping the team with eight goals and three assists in his 29 league appearances.

Nancy Preview

On the contrary, Nancy finally returned to winning ways in Ligue 1 last weekend thanks to an unexpected 3-0 home victory over Rennes. Prior to this result, Nancy were on a nine-game winless streak in Ligue 1, losing eight and drawing once in the process. The worrying fact is that Nancy have failed to score a single goal in ten of their last 15 games across all competitions. Actually, scoring goals has been Nancy’s biggest problem throughout the season as they hold the worst attacking record in the division, scoring just 24 goals in 32 league outings. However, Issiar Dia has enjoyed a decent Ligue 1 campaign as the 29-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with eight goals and two assists in his 26 league appearances. Nancy find themselves in a precarious situation at the moment in time as they currently sit in 17th spot in the standings tied on 31 points with the first relegation-placed Lorient. On the road, Nancy have only won two of their 16 league trips so far this season and are currently on a five-game losing streak in Ligue 1. In addition, Nancy have failed to score a single goal in each of their last five away league games.
