Nice vs Marseille
France – Coupe De France
Date: Wednesday, 09 February 2022
Kick-off at 20:15 UK / 21:15 CET
Venue: Allianz Riviera.
Nice surprised everyone bagging a win over the French heavyweights PSG in their previous Coupe De France round. They have managed to hold till the full-time and scored past the sure favorite rivals in the penalty shootout.
Keeping out PSG, they have been shining in the elite league recording positive displays in majority of their Ligue 1 fixtures. They will be hoping to return to their positive run as they lost their previous league fixture at home against Clermont Foot.
Meanwhile, Marseille have also advanced it to the quarter-finals after sealing a win over Montpellier at home in the penalty shootouts. They scored in the second half, gaining the lead for just six minutes till allowing the opposition to score in the 80th minute.
However, they looks to have a better shape in their recent league outings. They bagged a motivating win over Angers at home in their last matchday and will be entering this tie with decent spirits.
We can see either of these two outfits following an excellent spell of form lately. Therefore, we can expect a highly competitive Coupe De France Quarter-finals at Allianz Riviera on Wednesday.

Nice vs Marseille Prediction
Despite their position at the top flight of the Ligue 1 table, Nice have been putting up disappointing performances at home lately. They are winless in six of their previous 10 league affairs at home.
Meanwhile, Marseille have been putting up excellent displays on road lately winning 6 of their past 7 on road matches. They are unbeaten in 10 of their past 12 games on road.
On top of that, they have an excellent head to head stats against Nice and hence we are backing them to score a couple on Wednesday while leaking one. We anticipate a highly competitive game.
