Nice take on the visitors Marseille at the Allianz Riviera in the 10th tour of the Ligue 1 Conforama. The match will be played in the eponymous city Nice on Sunday, October 21st.
Nice have been looking pretty poor recently. Even though they have tried multiple players in their squad and have changed their playing styles several times throughout the current season Les Aiglons have been struggling to get positive results. For example, they had a 5-4-1 playing scheme against Paris Saint-Germain, a 3-4-3 playing scheme against Toulouse and a 3-4-1-2 playing scheme against Nantes. None of that has worked for the team of Patrick Vieira yet this Ligue 1 Conforama season. Thereby they have been conceding a lot of goals and have been scoring only a few lately. Le Gym have a 7-13 goal difference to their credit at the moment and place twelfth in the table. In their last three matches Nice drew against Toulouse with a 1-1 score, lost to Paris Saint-Germain with a 0-3 score and beat Nantes with a 2-1 score.

Even though Marseille place third in the Ligue 1 Conforama at the moment they have lost three out of their four away fixtures so far this season. They have been able to beat only Monaco on the away side recently. However, Les Monegasques have been in a horrible shape anyway and have been placing in the lower part of the table despite of their vice champion status. On the other hand, Les Olympiens have been scoring a lot of goals lately even in the matches they have lost in the end. The team of Rudi Garcia has 21 goals scored to their credit after nine tours. Interestingly, Les Phoceens scored more than one goal in seven of those nine games. In their last three matches Marseille beat Caen with a 2-0 score, drew against Apollon with a 2-2 score in their UEFA Europa League group stage fixture and lost to Lille with a 0-3 score.
Marseille are the favourite in the lead-up to their upcoming fixture against Nice. However, their recent away performances have been pretty weak. On the other hand, Nice have been looking bad too recently. The clear thing though is that Les Phoceens will most likely score some goals on Sunday. The defensive line of Les Aiglons has been horrible lately. The offensive line of Marseille on the other hand has been a roll, they have been extremely productive. All of the four key strikers in the team of Rudi Garcia have already scored at least one goal this Ligue 1 Conforama season. Florian Thauvin has been especially incredible recently, he has scored seven goals so far. Another key player for Les Olympiens Dimitri Payet has scored four goals. Thereby it will unbelievably hard for the team of Patrick Vieira to leave the field with no goals conceded on Sunday. Furthermore, Le Gym have conceded at least once in all of their home fixtures so far this season. Marseille on the other hand often score more than once in their league games. Seven out of nine fixtures they have already had this season have ended with them scoring two goals or even more. It is likely that we will see the same thing in their upcoming match against Nice.
Prediction for the match: Marseille to score over 1.5 goals.
