Nice vs Strasbourg Prediction & Betting tips
Olympique Nice and RC Strasbourg are both in a form crisis at the moment with only three and two points from the last four league matches respectively. Will one of the teams finally win another Sunday afternoon or will the malaise continue?
Olympique Nice lost three games for the third time in the last round of play. When visiting flyer Amiens, Patrick Vieira’s team did not score any goal, which made Amiens’ early goal enough for the win. Patrick Vieira attributed the defeat to the lack of experience of his players: “From the difference between the two halves you can see that the players are still lacking experience: we were under pressure and did not know how to react. and will learn from this competition. ” With a shared eighth place after 26 rounds and six points behind the top four, the learning process of the players of Vieira at the moment seems particularly costly, especially since the last two defeats were against low flyers.
The statistics indicate that Olympique Nice has had two offensive very poor matches. Of the twenty goal attempts of Les Aiglons, four also actually scored as goals, while the remaining sixteen shots, including no less than from the penalty area, ended next to the goal. Only En Avant Guingamp came up with fewer hits this season than Olympique Nice, but the difference is now only one goal. Yet there are also positive statistics for Vieira’s team, as no less than five of the last seven home games in Ligue 1 were won, including the last three, and the other two were played in the same way.
After defeats against Angers and AS Saint-Étienne and a bloodless 0-0 draw against lowfielder Caen, RC Strasbourg also failed to win the number two of the Ligue 1, Lille. After a weak first half, in which Thierry Laurey’s team also fell 1-0, the team was able to compete well with Lille in the second half and was not tied to the proportions in the final score at 1-1 by a goal of Anthony Goncalves. By only winning two points from the last four league games, Le Racing has now dropped to a somewhat disappointing shared eighth place and it seems that placement for European football must be enforced by winning the Coupe de la Ligue in a few weeks against the last team and Avant Guingamp.
Just like Olympique Nice, RC Strasbourg has not shown its best side in the offensive field in the last few weeks with only three hits in the last four matches. In total, 41 hits were scored in the Ligue 1 this season, but now that club top scorer Lebo Mothiba has not scored in the Ligue 1 for almost three months, the figures from Le Racing have been less convincing lately. Kenny Lala, Adrien Thomasson and Joia Nuno da Costa remain very important for their team with 14 goals in the Ligue 1 this season, but even more importantly eighteen assists. However, if there is no striker in blood form with the team of Laurey, the combination football and opportunities suddenly turn out to be worth a lot less, so it is to be hoped for Laurey that there will soon be a finisher in his team.
