Table-toppers Nice can continue their strong start to the season with another win on Sunday.
Nancy v Nice - Sunday 16:00, BT Sport ESPN
Nice have had an excellent start to the season as their 4-0 home win against Monaco in midweek saw them climb to the top of the table, with new man Mario Balotelli somewhat surprisingly hitting the ground running. The Italian’s netted four goals already in his two appearances and looks to be following in Ben Arfa’s footsteps in resurrecting his career at Nice.
After losing and failing to score in their opening three games, promoted Nancy looked to be staring down the relegation barrel, but they’ve since picked up five points from their last three games. They were the best side defensively in Ligue 2 last term and they’ve now kept two clean sheets in their last three, while Lyon are the only side to have scored more than twice against them.
Nice have picked up where they left off last season where they won seven of their final 10 games to climb up to 4th, though they’ve only managed to win three of their last 14 on the road as they’ve drawn six of these games. However, given they’re in excellent form at the moment and top the league, they look a big price to win at 3.1, travelling to a promoted side that have scored only three goals this season. Indeed, since eight of Nice’s last 10 wins were without conceding, we’re going to back the win to nil.
