Marseille – Nice, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MARSEILLE - NICE
Marseille look like a renowned team. After dropping out a long time ago from Europa League and also having problems in the domestic cups, where they were also eliminated and were in a very bad situation in the league, now in several games, especially since Balotelli came, and some major players returned after the injuries, Marseille is again in great shape and becomes the main contender for the third place after Lyon, who are currently in this position.
Nice has nothing to do with Favre’s team anymore. Vieira relies on a particular defensive style of play and rarely changes it. Nice are quite erratic lately. They have lost their last 3 away games to 0, but have won their last 3 home games to 0. We have to note that Nice has the 4th strongest defense in the league, which confirms that they are a defensive team.
However, there is another big fact, and it is that Nice has the 2nd weakest attack in Ligue 1. This means that in the matches of Nice is the least number of goals at all in the league. With all these difficulties, Marseille has only 2 home losses coming from the top 2 teams in the league. Olympics are in great shape, and in their last game they defeated St. Etienne and replaced them from 4th place. We think there are currently not many teams that can stop Marseille at their stadium, so prediction – Marseille to win at 1.52.
- Nice has no win as a guest since the start of November in Ligue 1
- Marseille is in series of 4 consecutive wins over Nice
