Nice v Schalke – Thursday 20:05, BT Sport Extra
Nice are sitting level on points with Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 following their 3-2 victory over Marseille at the weekend as Mario Balotelli struck twice on his debut. It was no surprise to see the Italian snatch the ball for the opener and slot away a penalty. Super Mario loves being the star attraction and he’s a tempting 2.90 to net againhere.
French teams have often struggled travelling to German opposition in this competition but it’s been a different story when they’ve hosted their neighbours as they’ve won 48% of the matches. With Schalke’s shaky start to the season, Nice look too big as outsiders at home to take all three points.
