OGC NICE VS REIMS PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Although highly appreciated for their ability, Nice disappointed last season when they only finished in 9th place. This means that they cannot get a place in the European arena this season. This is an unexpected achievement when last season Nice was present in the Europa League group stage. However, this team is showing effort and good preparation for this year’s tournament. They have had 2 friendlies at home recently and have defeated both Dynamo Kyiv and drew AC Milan.
Reims has had a disappointing season. In short, they had to play relegation in the 2nd division this season after a series of bad matches at the end of the season. Specifically, this team only got 4 points in 7 matches, in which they lost ¾ of the last round. Out of the past 7 friendly matches, coach Oscar Garcia Junyent’s team only got good results against lower-tier teams. Besides, they lost against RC Lens. The most recent was a 1-3 loss against Bundesliga representative Hoffenheim.
Looking at the results in the last friendly match of both teams, it is clear that holding a strong team like Nice’s AC Milan is a much better result than Reims’ 1-3 loss to Hoffenheim. Because Hoffenheim is just a mid-level Bundesliga team. With very good preparation and home advantage, Nice will be a wise choice for this matchup.
Select: Nice FT.
Nice and Reims have had 16 confrontations in the past. But there are 13 matches with no more than 2 goals scored. Even the last 2 matches were goalless draws. In the last 6 friendly matches, only 1 match Nice scored more than 1 goal. In which, they were once dead before the 3rd place team, Bastia.
Select: Under 2 1/4 FT.
Nice is the team that is more appreciated in this match. This is understandable when they are playing at home. Besides, the performance is quite good in recent friendlies. In addition, last season, Nice also had a better record than Reims when 10 points more. And Nice has never lost to Reims in all of the last 5 meetings. Therefore, the possibility of the home team winning 3 points is very high.
Select: Nice FT.
