PSG vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 13th February 2021
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Parc des Princes (Paris).
PSG can go 1st in Ligue 1 with victory on Saturday because Lille play on Sunday and Lyon play later in the evening.
The French champions had to battle hard in the French Cup in midweek but they beat Caen 1-0 to advance to the next round. However Neymar looks to have picked up a bad groin injury and will miss this game for sure. He is a doubt for PSG’s huge game against Barcelona in the Champions League too.
PSG have won 4 of their last 5 games and last weekend they beat Marseille 2-0. The club have the best home form having picked up 28 points from a possible 36.
Nice will be the huge underdogs to win this game. The club are down in 13th place and come here trailing PSG by 22 points. Nice did win their 8th game of the season last weekend as they beat Angers 3-0.
In midweek in an all Ligue 1 tie Nice did well to beat Nimes 3-1 away from home and with two wins in a row in all competitions means the club will come into this game with some confidence.
PSG vs Nice Head to Head
- The last time the clubs played at PSG the game ended 1-1.
- Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture PSG won 3-0.
- Nice have not won at PSG’s ground since 2009 in the league.
PSG vs Nice Prediction
The motivation will be there for PSG to win this game and with the consistency of both Lille and Lyon the champions have no choice, and can ill afford to drop any points.
Still we don’t expect PSG to drop many more points at home this season and this should be a straight forward victory. Though backing the home win feels impossible as they are very short odds, so we will look into different markets.
