Nantes host Nice at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau on Tuesday afternoon, with both looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Nantes were beaten 2-1 on the road at Lille at the weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Kalifa Coulibaly with just eight minutes to go. On the other hand, Nice lost 1-0 on the road at Montpellier, with Patrick Vieira’s men conceding the goal just after the half-hour mark.

Betting Tips for the game
Nantes have endured a mixed run of form in Ligue 1 throughout this campaign, registering three defeats, two draws and one defeat in six games. They were on a three-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1 prior to their narrow 2-1 loss at Lille last weekend. The bad news is that Nantes are now back on home soil where they are winless in the last seven league outings.
On the contrary, Nice have won just two of their last ten games across all competitions. They managed to win back-to-back Ligue 1 fixtures before losing 1-0 on the road at Montpellier at the weekend. However, away from home, Nice picked up just one victory in their last seven league trips, while winning three.
Nice are undefeated in their last four league meetings with Nantes and they also looked better this season. Our betting tips and predictions expect Nice Draw No Bet at odds 2.20.

Patrick Vieira managed to guide Nice to back-to-back Ligue 1 victories before their 1-0 loss at Montpellier at the weekend. They did well to collect four points from their two meetings with Nantes in Ligue 1 last season, despite the fact Nantes hasn’t had such an extraordinary campaign last year. Our preview expect Lyon to win at odds 2.15.

Correct Score odds
Although Nantes have struggled for form in this early part of the new Ligue 1 campaign, they still managed to score in four of their six league games. On the flip side, Nice haven’t been strong going forward so far this season, but they managed to find the back of the net in each of their last four meetings with Nantes in Ligue 1. Our correct score fancies Nice to win 1-0 at odds 8.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
We can’t see too many goals in this one as these two sides haven’t been very prolific in front of goal in this early part of the campaign. In addition, three of the last five Ligue 1 meetings between these two teams have seen few than three goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.65.

First Goalscorer odds
Allan Saint-Maximin has been in good shape for Nice over the past few weeks, having scored twice in his team’s last three league outings. The 22-year-old midfielder already looks much better than last season and we fancy him to add another goal to his tally here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Allan Saint-Maximin at odds 9.50.
