Nice – Caen : Preview & Prediction
OGC Nice returns to its Allianz Riviera after two games played away. The GYM, after a draw in Strasbourg (1-1), lost to the Vélodrome against Olympique de Marseille (2-1) last Sunday, and must start again in his den against Stade Malherbe de Caen. In ambush in the race for Europe, the formation of Lucien Favre, who was undefeated since March 18 before the match in Marseille, must imperatively get the 3 points after two last good performances ahead of Rennes (1-1) and Montpellier (1-0) at home. The Normandy team, 15th, could live a last day of the most crisp in case of defeat in Nice since it will receive the PSG. Indeed, Caen, long stalled in the soft underbelly, is now 3 points from Toulouse, 18th … A long run to hell for the protégés of Patrice Garande who are deprived of victory for 2 months! With only 2 points taken over the last 8 days, Stade Malherbe Caen could be the big loser of the 37th day in case of new counter-performance on the Côte d’Azur.
Nice is undefeated at home against Caen since 2011. The record is 2 wins and 2 draws for the Aiglons.
The first leg ended in a score split (1-1) in Normandy, while Nice thought they could win without this equalizer in Rodelin’s extra time (90 + 2).
Despite his misstep in Marseille, the OGCN, 7th, is still in the race for Europe, only 3 points from Rennes, 5th. Victory is therefore mandatory this weekend.
Caen runs after a victory since March 4th! The Norman formation is on a series in course of 9 matches without success (2 draws and 7 defeats), all competitions!
Caen took only 2 points on his last 8 trips in Ligue 1 … Either one of the worst series on the move.
Nice will be intractable against a team from Caen who plays his skin in Ligue 1. But the Aiglons, who are aiming for a European qualification, will not feel and will aim for a 15th win this season in the league.
