Nice to win their first game of the season

We are tipping OGC Nice to bag victory in their first match of the season. Apart from the fact that Nice had only lost a home fixture to Reims once, the hosts finished five places and 10 points ahead of Reims last season. Home advantage is also another reason for the hosts to win this match.

Few goals expected

Our second pick is premised on how these teams have performed against each other in past meetings.  A fixture between Nice and Reims has only been a defensive one with only a few goals scored whenever these teams meet. The last two meetings ended in a barren draw. Moreover, there were fewer than three goals in the last 13 meetings between Nice and Reims.

No goal-goal

We don’t expect goals on both sides either. Of the 15 previous meetings between these teams, only five had goals on both sides. Such a record is likely to be manifest in this first game of the season.

Match Preview: Can Reims Get the Second Away Victory Over Nice?

Reims last victory over Nice was on the road back in August 2018 and it was the first leg of the 2018/19 season. Can they record a similar feat on Sunday? Our fixture preview has more details.

Nice

Christophe Galtier is the new head coach to steer Nice in the new season. The 54-year-old has taken over the reins at Allianz Rivera after a successful spell in Lille. Galtier’s steered Lille to Ligue 1 victory last season and so, his immense experience and tactical prowess is something to watch in this match. This is Galtier’s third club as a manager, all of which have been French teams starting with Saint-Etienne, Lille and now Nice.

Reims

Reims struggled in the last five games of last season, losing four and drawing once. And while the visitors started pre-season games with back to back victories, they have gone back to default settings in the last three games of 1D and 2L. The visitors are wary of the tough opposition Nice brings to this fixture and how hard it is to win at Allianze Rivera. But with a new head, Oscar Garcia, Reims hopes for a better campaign this season. Garcia was the manager of the Spanish side, Celta Vigo where averaged 1.08 points in 38 games.
