NICE V STRASBOURG
In that game, Nice managed 29% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 2 on target. On the other side, Paris Saint-Germain had 20 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
It has been all too rare in recent times that Nice have shown defensive steel. In fact, Nice have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 5 goals on the way. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, of course.
Coming into this meeting, Nice are without a home win in the past 3 matches in the league.
Strasbourg will go into this clash following a 5-2 Ligue 1 win as they beat Girondins de Bordeaux in their previous fixture.

Girondins de Bordeaux got 13 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Ui-Jo Hwang (7') and Alberth Elis (57') scored for Girondins de Bordeaux.
The numbers tell their own story, and Strasbourg have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in all. In defence, Strasbourg just haven’t been too solid at all.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
