Nice vs Paris SG Prediction & Betting tips
The master PSG is visiting Nice in the south. The home side will be happy about the timing of the game. The Tuchel-Elf comes by in a decimated form and is currently much less scary than normal.
Bankruptcies were conceded on the first two match days and a last-minute win against Metz was booked last Wednesday evening. In addition to the personnel needs, the final in the Champions League, which was lost last month, still reverberates negatively in the minds of the players.
The hosts, for their part, had a good start into the new season with two victories, but were recently hit by the defeat at Montpellier. For the upcoming match between Nice and PSG, the tip includes that the guests will not win again.
One reason for the Adler’s lame appearance against Montpellier for the first time was the changed starting line-up by coach Patrick Vieira. He left the formally strong youngster Amine Gouiri on the bench and instead ordered Myziane Maolida into the starting line-up.
The background to this change was Gouiri’s previous appointment to the U21 national team of the Equipe Tricolor. As a result, Vieira feared that the attacker would not have the strength for the full distance. However, Maolida could hardly set any accents and the OGC coach brought the new signing from Lyon at least for the last half hour.
He proved his current form strength only six minutes after being substituted on and put on the only goal from Nice at 1: 3. However, Gouiri could not change anything about the defeat of last year’s fifth and an overall completely inadequate offensive performance with only one direct shot on goal.
In view of the overall absolutely poor performance, in which the previously stable defense allowed itself to be poured three hits, a defiant reaction can now be expected against Paris. This is also supported by the previous appearances, which have already shown the potential of the southern French.
A long dry spell for the guests from Marseille ended in Paris last Sunday evening. After almost nine years PSG had to accept a defeat again in the “Classique”. In retrospect, the result was almost of secondary importance despite its historical dimension. Rather, the mood in France is still heating up the final phase with five dismissals.
Here Saint-Germain lost three players. Leandro Paredes will now be absent from midfield, Layvin Kurzawa from defense and Neymar from attack. A long as illustrious list of players that even the PSG squad cannot make up for.
To make matters worse, the last match against Metz was hardly less lossy in terms of the squad. On top of that, Juan Bernat is now out due to an injury and defender Abdou Diallo picked up a yellow-red card. It is also questionable whether Kylian Mbappe can return to the starting XI after his quarantine.
How much the failures hurt Paris was made clear by the match against the weak eleven from Lorraine. Despite a playful superiority against a team that has not yet scored a goal this season, as mentioned, the redeeming winning goal was achieved very late.
This ended a goalless phase of three competitive games for the title holder. In view of the enormous loss of personnel, the odds for a maximum of one hit by the guests are interesting in the game of Nice against PSG.
