Nice vs Versailles Predictions

  • Nice have won only one of their last 12 home games by more than one goal.
  • Nice have won only two of their last 12 home French cup games by more than a goal.
  • Versailles are a confident side with forwards that can cause problems on the counter attack.
  • Nice are without both first-choice full backs Jordan Amavi and Youcef Atal, plus suspended centre-back Dante.

Nice could toil against fourth-tier foe

Nice ought to progress to the Coupe de France Final against fourth tier Versailles, but the visitors could cause enough difficult moments to make their match result backers really sweat.

The semi-final should have been played in Versailles but unable to host the meeting, the National 2 club were offered the chance to reverse the fixture in exchange for all the gate receipts and travel expenses. That, in theory, should make it a lot less slippy of a banana skin for the Ligue 1 club to traverse.

But Nice have won more league points on the road this season and conceded exactly half the amount of goals than they have done at the Allianz Riviera – so the venue switch may not be as favorable as it looks.

Defenses could be on top at the Allianz Riviera

Les Aiglons can still boast the best defensive record in Ligue 1 with 21 goals conceded in 26 games while Versailles have conceded just 12 in 19 league games themselves. This would suggest a low-scoring affair could be on the cards, but Nice are without three top class defenders through injury and suspension.

Versailles demonstrated what they could do to a quality side when they knocked Ligue 2 leaders Toulouse out on their own patch two rounds ago and they can make this very difficult for Nice. Versailles defend well and can sit deep and use their pacy forwards as a deterrent for Nice to get too ambitious with pushing defenders into attack.

That’s why the odds on Versailles +2 goals look worth taking here as we rate the visitors chances of holding firm for long spells. Also, Christophe Galtier’s side are unused to recording comprehensive wins on the south coast, having beaten only one of their last 11 home opponents by more than one goal. A 1-0 win for Nice could prove profitable in correct score betting as Verasilles have not conceded more than once in their last seven away games.
