Nice vs Strasbourg Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nice will look to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track when they welcome the newly-promoted Strasbourg at the Allianz Riviera on Sunday afternoon. Nice suffered a 2-0 defeat on the road at Montpellier last time out, with Lucien Favre’s men conceding both goals in the second half. Marseille threw away a one-goal lead twice to secure a 3-3 draw on the road at Strasbourg. Dimitri Payet, Morgan Sanson and Konstantinos Mitroglou all get on the scoresheet for OM. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Despite the recent struggle, Nice should be able to get back to winning ways in this one as they are a strong side on home soil and they also hold a perfect head-to-head home record over Strasbourg. On the flip side, the visitors are winless in their last seven competitive away fixtures, scoring just four goals in the process.

Nice Preview

Nice have enjoyed an excellent run of form in September, but they have been terrible since the start of October. They are currently on a three-game losing streak across all competitions, including a humiliating 1-3 home loss against Lazio in their Europa League midweek clash. They still sit in second spot in the group K table with six points after three rounds, just three points of the group leaders Lazio. Keeping the ball out of their own net has definitely been the main reason for their recent struggle, as they conceded at least two goals in four of their last five competitive fixtures. Nice finished third in the Ligue 1 table last term, but this season they now sit only 14th in the standings with ten points after nine rounds. On home soil, Nice have only won four of their last ten home games across all competitions and are currently on a two-game losing streak. However, Nice should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in six home meetings with Strasbourg across all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Mario Balotelli and Alassane Plea have both been in fine shape in this early part of the campaign, as the pair bagged eight 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.

Strasbourg Preview

Strasbourg have found life in Ligue 1 difficult as they only managed to win one of their opening nine league outings. The minnows come into this tie on the back of a seven-game winless streak in Ligue 1, losing four in the process. However, they looked decent in their 3-3 home draw against Marseille last time out in Ligue 1, in a game in which they fought back from one-goal down twice and even took the lead before conceding the equalizer with just two minutes to go. Strasbourg are second from the bottom in the Ligue 1 table tied on six points with other four teams, just three points clear of the bottom-placed Metz. Similar to their Sunday’s opponents, Strasbourg have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net throughout this campaign, as they hold the second joint-worst defensive record in the division with 17 goals conceded in nine rounds. Their away form has also let them down as they are winless in seven competitive fixtures, scoring just four goals in the process. Dimitri Lienard is a player to watch here, as the 29-year-old striker has already helped the team with two goals and two assists in his eight league appearances.

Strasbourg Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Strasbourg ahead of this clash.
