Nice vs Bordeaux Prediction 17 December 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Allianz Riviera Stadium
Match date: 17.12.2017 at 16:00

On December 17 2017 at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in the upcoming regular game of the 18th matchday of the French Ligue 1 the local Nice are playing against their guests Bordeaux.

Nice managed to gain 13 points in their latest 6 games played in the Ligue 1 which let them go up from the bottom of the table significantly. They are now on the 8th position in the table and as it seems to us they are ready to compete for the top five in the standings. As for Bordeaux, they, in their turn, show horrible results and they don’t seem to be ready to gain points in Nice.

Since Bordeaux lost to PSG, they seem to have loosen their conditions, in fact. In their next ten matches Bordeaux only won once and gain five points. Compare it with their starting 6 matches when they gained 15 points and you will see the difference. They can’t actually gain points in their away matches as they lost six latest away games even though they only had Parisians as strong competitors.

They even lost to the beginners of the league Strasbourg and they did it at home with the devastating 0:3 score. At the beginning of the championship they only failed in defense playing against the teams from the top 3 while in the latest matches they concede three goals playing against Strasbourg and Dijon. They were not convincing enough in their cup matches against Toulouse where they also lost despite the fact that they played with the main squad. They have a lot of problems with creating chances and scoring. In the latest ten games they only scored 7 goals and in their 6 matches they didn’t manage to score even once.

Nice became much more convincing in defense and only failed once during the last two months in the match against Lyon. Of course, they have problems sometimes in their defense as they conceded at least one goal in all of their latest seven matches in a row. Yet, they managed to improve their performance in defense as they managed to avoid scoring in their matches against Nantes and Vitesse, who committed 41 attempts in their games together.

The hosts also look rather strong in attack. Their main squad player Balotelli keeps scoring goals every time. He has already scored 15 matches and he actually missed 8 matches in the current season. As a result, Nice scored 7 goals in their latest three matches which let them gain nine points of nine possible.

The hosts used to have some problems with finishing and now they are much more efficient in this aspect. Considering their failures in defense and we actually think that they will manage to score one or two goals and win in the end.
