Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Nice win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Hoping to continue their impressive run of form entering the Christmas period, Nice will host Angers on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while they may have endured a tricky start to life under Patrick Viera, Nice have shown real signs of improvement and have begun to climb up the Ligue 1 table. In their opening 15 domestic matches this season, they have won seven, drawn three and lost five, scoring 12 and conceding 15 in return, Nice now currently hold the third best defensive record in the league. With a points tally of 24, they sit just three points adrift from climbing into the Champions League positions. As for their recent form, the hosts are now unbeaten in their last six Ligue 1 matches, winning five of those. More impressive, Nice have now recorded four clean sheets in their last four appearances.
As for the visitors, while Angers are flirting with the middle of the table this season, it has been another inconsistent start. In their 15 opening games, they have won four, drawn five and lost six, scoring 19 and conceding 21 in return. While they may currently sit 13th in the table with 17 points, they do also sit just four points clear of the relegation zone and will be looking over their shoulder. As for their recent run of form, Angers have now recorded just one victory across all competitions. It is also worth noting that the visitors have failed to win any of their last four matches on the road.
