Nice vs Troyes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nice and Troyes will square off at the Allianz Riviera on Friday afternoon, as both teams will be looking for the first victory of the new Ligue 1 season. Nice lost 1-0 on the road at Saint-Etienne on Saturday, with Lucien Favre’s men conceding the goal in the first four minutes of the game. Meanwhile, Troyes had a 1-0 lead against Rennes at the weekend thanks to a goal from Samuel Grandsir, but Rennes levelled the game with 20 minutes to go and both sides had to settle for a draw. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m backing Nice to get back to winning ways here as they were a strong side at home last term and they also have more quality within their ranks than the newcomers Troyes. I’m also fancying goals as Nice have scored at least two goals in their last three home meetings with Troyes in Ligue 1, while Troyes have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six away games across all competitions.

Nice Preview

Nice did well to qualify for the Champions League play-offs following a difficult clash against last season’s Europa League runner-ups Ajax last week, but they kicked off the new Ligue 1 season in a disappointing manner. They were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Saint-Etienne at the weekend despite the fact that they had the better ball possession and more shots on target than the hosts. However, Nice are now returning to home soil , nd they should be able to get back to winning ways as last season’s performance was heavily based on their impressive home form. Nice were the second best home team in Ligue 1 last term, collecting 46 points from their 19 home league fixtures. Their sole home loss in the last 15 games across all competitions came at the hands of Angers in their final home fixture of the previous campaign. Furthermore, Nice are undefeated in their six home meetings with Troyes across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in three of these. Nice still have a solid squad despite the departures of Younes Belhanda and Ricardo Pereira who both returned to their clubs after their loan spell. Furthermore, Nice have announced this weekend that they have agreed to sign Wesley Sneijder on a free transfer. He will link up with former Inter Milan team-mate, Mario Balotelli.

Nice Team News

Mario Balotelli, Mickael Le Bihan and Mounir Obbadi are all doubts, while Wylan Cyprien is out through a cruciate ligament injury.

Troyes Preview

Meanwhile, Troyes have enjoyed a decent pre-season, losing just once in five friendlies. They began their adventure in Ligue 1 with a 1-1 home draw against Rennes, although they had the lead for 23 minutes following Samuel Grandsir’s goal in the 46th minute. Troyes’ form over the past four months has been solid as they have only lost once in their last 14 games across all competitions and come into this tie on the back of a three-game unbeaten streak. In terms of transfers, Troyes managed to keep their best players at the club during summer, and they also brought in Bryan Pele from Brets on a free transfer and Saif-Eddine Khaoui on loan from Marseille. Troyes got promoted from Ligue 2 at the end of last season as they managed to beat Lorient 2-1 on aggregate in the promotion/relegation play-offs. The bad news is that Troyes have endured a mixed run of form away from home over the past seven months, registering seven defeats, four draws and four wins in their last 15 games across all competitions. In addition, Troyes have never won a single game at the Allianz Riviera and their last victory over Nice was a 2-0 triumph back in 2006.

Troyes Team News

Mory Kone is the only doubtful player for Troyes ahead of this trip.
