PSG vs Nice Prediction & Match Preview

PSG vs Nice Prediction & Match Preview

All eyes will be fixed on Parc des Princes as PSG and Nice prepare to face off in a highly-anticipated Ligue 1 clash.

The Parisians are determined to surpass Monaco in the top position, and we are confident that they will launch an all-out assault against les Aiglons.

It’s worth noting that both Neymar and Leo Messi departed the club earlier this summer, making Kylian Mbappe the one to watch on the home team.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that Marco Asensio, Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico, Nuno Mendes, and Presnel Kimpembe are all sidelined due to injuries.

On the other hand, Nice has struggled to defeat PSG in “The City of Lights” since November 2009, and considering their difficulties on the road, a home victory should be seriously considered. Players like Khephren Thuram, Claude Maurice, and Antoine Mendy will be absent due to injuries for the visiting team. In their previous meeting in Paris, PSG secured a 2-1 victory over Nice.

PSG’s Season So Far:

PSG kicked off the season with a somewhat average performance but quickly found their rhythm. The team began with two draws but then triumphed in their following two matches, resulting in an impressive four-game unbeaten streak.

Nice’s Performance:

On the other hand, Nice has maintained a steady yet average form since the start of the season. They commenced with a draw and added two more stalemates to their record. However, Nice bounced back with a convincing 2-0 victory over Strasbourg in their fourth match, breaking a three-game streak of draws.

PSG vs Nice Head-to-Head Stats:

When examining their recent encounters, PSG holds the upper hand, having won the last two consecutive meetings against Nice. In their latest face-off, PSG secured a 2-0 victory. Additionally, PSG boasts an impressive 14-game unbeaten streak against Nice at their home stadium.

Match Winner between PSG vs Nice?:

PSG’s home performances have been solid, with them being unbeaten in four of their last five matches. Their lone loss in that stretch came against the formidable UCL finalists, Inter Milan. It’s worth noting that PSG has remained undefeated in home league outings this season. In contrast, Nice’s away form has been less impressive, with four losses in their last five road trips, including three defeats. Considering PSG’s dominance in head-to-head matchups, we favor PSG to clinch the victory in this contest.

Goal Expectations:

Two out of PSG’s last three home matches have been high-scoring affairs. Their attacking prowess has seen them score over 2.5 goals per match in their past two outings. Therefore, we anticipate this match to witness over 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score:

PSG’s defensive line has shown vulnerability in recent league matches, conceding goals in their last three outings. Given that Nice has found the back of the net in three out of their four matches, we have good reason to expect goals from both sides in this matchup.

PSG vs. Nice Prediction:

Taking into account PSG’s strong home form and their historical advantage in head-to-head encounters, we believe PSG is the team to bet on in this fixture. We recommend considering a wager on PSG to win with both teams scoring at odds of 2.87. Additionally, for a second tip, consider betting on over 2.5 goals with odds of 1.57.
