Nice vs Marseille: Prediction and Betting Tips
Nice full of confidence after a good start
New coach Christophe Galtier showed he means business as he guided Nice to a 4-0 thumping of Lille. In fact, it was a very impressive win against the reigning champions and Galtier’s former team. Yet to concede this season, Nice has the chance to register their third consecutive clean sheet this season. That will be their first such feat since 1970-71.
Last year’s title-winning coach Galtier has some tasks to deal with. Firstly, he has to make sure Nice improve their ninth position finish which was their worst in six seasons. Secondly, the Eaglets have a weak record against Marseille which they would like to set straight with a win here. However, the four-time Ligue 1 champions did crush Marseille 3-0 last season in the Allianz Arena.
Nice Key Points
- Nice scored in five of their last ten matches
- The Eaglets had three clean sheets in ten matches
- BTTS happened in Nice’s four of ten matches
Still undefeated Marseille need some defensive adjustments
Like their opponents, Marseille also started their season unbeaten in their first two games. However, it has been a very exciting two games for The Olympians. Interestingly, in those two matches, the team that was leading 2-0 t half time failed to win. In the first game of the season, L’OM were losing 2-0 at halftime to Montpellier but won 3-2.
Then, in the second game of the season, roles were reversed for Marseille against Bordeaux. After taking the lead in the first half with two quick goals, coach Galtier’s team squandered their lead. Strangely, and despite having 72% of the ball possession in the second half, still Bordeaux had more chances and scored twice. In the end, four goals in two games is not encouraging Galtier’s defense.
Marseille Key Points
- BTTS happened in eight of Marseille’s last ten matches
- Marseille failed to score in just one of their last ten matches
- L’OM had one clean sheet in ten games
Nice vs Marseille Prediction
Four-time French champions Nice are playing ten-time champions Marseille. Incidentally, Marseille are the only French club to win the European Cup (CL). Moreover, there hasn’t been a goalless draw in 35 consecutive H2Hs.
With coach Galtier in charge, Nice hope for at least a top-four finish and probably a CL qualification. Hence the importance of this match as Marseille will be one of the Eaglets’ main challengers in the season.
Marseille had also acquired the services of coach Jorge Sampaoli in the middle of last season. Consequently, the fans are expecting a much better campaign under the reign of the Argentine famous for his temper.
The odds for a win are very high and equal at Vbet, 2.74 for Nice and 2.70 for Marseille. Again, the combos section of Vbet has some great offers. Double chance and total goals scored seem very profitable bets.
