Nice vs PSG prediction comes before the 10th Ligue round matchup. This match will be played on Friday, October 18th, at the Allianz Riviera in Nice, France. In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two French teams.
Nice vs PSG Betting Tips
PSG are at the top of the table, which is usually business for the richest French club. But, the fact is that they haven’t been as convincing as they’d like. After nine rounds, they have seven wins and two defeats. Last season, they lost a total of five games, while in the season 2017-2018, they had only three defeats in total. Losing two matches in the early stages of the season is definitely something they need to be concerned about, at least slightly.
Nantes are breathing by their necks with two points fewer. Still, not many people actually believe that any other French team has what it takes to overtake the top spot. Of course, this doesn’t mean they have the luxury to relax. On the contrary, they need to keep on winning and getting all three points against Nice on Friday is in their plans.
Good performances in Ligue 1 are important for another reason – they would give PSG the confidence they need to do well in the Champions League. Speaking of which, PSG are playing against Club Brugge four days after their trip to Nice.
Although PSG are traveling to the south of France with the intention of getting all three points, Nice will not give up without a fight. This team has been in a poor form, but a good result against the strongest team in France would definitely give them a major morale boost. What gives them confidence that they can get at least a point on Friday evening is the fact that the last time they played PSG, the final score was 1:1.
That match was played earlier this year in the French capital, while this time, Nice will have the support of their fans, which is another big advantage. Still, the difference in quality is definitely on the side of the visiting team. Even though this won’t be an easy game, PSG are expected to take all three points from their trip to the French Riviera.
