Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have not scored in Nice’s last five away Ligue 1 matches.
  • Both teams have not scored the last two Ligue 1 home matches of Clermont.
  • Nice have conceded just three goals in their six away league games of 2020-21.

Les Aiglons usually leave slim pickings

Nice squandered a good opportunity to cement themselves in second place prior to the international break when they lost 1-0 to Montpellier and should be determined not to suffer a similar fate against Clermont on Sunday.

Christophe Galtier’s side dominated the game, but fell to a late sucker punch, leaving Les Aiglons with a rather inconsistent looking recent record of two wins, two defeats and a draw from their last five outings.

But Nice are actually in pretty good form right now and could easily have won all five of those games with the rub of the green going their way.

Galtier has solidified a defence that shipped 53 goals last season and they are currently on pace to concede less than 30. Nice have the best defensive record in Ligue 1 and only three of the ten goals that have hit the back of their net have come on the road, where goals at both ends have been relatively scarce.

Clermont kicking themselves after St Etienne sickener

Clermont have had the last fortnight to stew over an even-more galling result than Nice’s as they threw away a two-goal lead in losing 3-2 at St Etienne with Les Verts scoring twice in stoppage time.

That could be the sort of result that defines their season and the promoted club will be desperate to halt a run of three straight league defeats.

Defensively, Clermont have been OK at home this season – conceding seven goals in six games. It’s unlikely they keep a clean sheet this Sunday, but we cannot rule it out if they pack their defence in a bid to negotiate some choppy waters.

Nice may also be missing one of their greatest attacking threats as full-back Youcef Atal has been struggling with an injury, so we are plumping for ‘both teams to score – no’ as the main bet here and a 1-0 correct score for the away side because of their overall form.
