Nice – Clermont PREVIEW

  • While their title hopes are remote at best, Nice enter this clash after a purple patch of five straight league wins, which is their longest run of victories since a six-game spell ending in late 2016. That winning streak has fans believing that the ‘Eaglets’ could soar into Europe’s premier continental competition for the first time since 1960.
  • Nice’s thrust for second place has largely been built upon a solid defence and they’ve now conceded just once across the last 330 minutes of league football. In fact only three sides have managed to score at least twice against them in league action this season!
  • A clean sheet last time out, as they eliminated league leading PSG from the Coupe de France, gives Nice perfect momentum as they face a Clermont side starting to slump badly. After sitting in the top six after six rounds, the visitors now wallow uncomfortably close to the relegation places, though a shock 2-1 win over Rennes last time out ended a three-game winless run of league games.
  • That win over Rennes was also the first time Clermont had won a Ligue 1 game after conceding the opener (W1, D4, L8), though it is their away form that has been holding them back. In fact, Clermont have accrued more away points (eight) than only Lorient, and that meagre tally accounts for just 38% of their total haul to date.
  • Players to watch: Amine Gouiri has contributed to 47% of Nice’s league goals this term (G10, A7), including two goals and three assists across his last three league outings. Hoping to upset the odds and conquer the Riviera is Clermont’s top scorer Mohamed Bayo (nine goals) who should make a return following his AFCON excursions.
  • Hot stat: Nice are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 league games played against newly-promoted opponents (W6, D5, L1).
