Fresh from an emphatic 4-0 strike against champions Lille, Nice Prepare for what a blockbuster affair should be Marseille at the Allianz Riviera on Sunday evening.

While Christophe Galtier Witness how his players showed an almost perfect performance against his ex-club, Marseille could only get a 2-2 draw against Bordeaux in the second week of the game.


Prediction for this match

Galtier was welcomed with open arms at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy after he made Ligue 1 glory from Lille last season, but Les Dogues fans soon saw their former Nice manager’s side win the championship second matchday torn to pieces.

Kasper Dolberg and Hicham Boudaoui Les Aiglons scored two goals in just under five minutes of the encounter, and the former doubled his record with a header in the second half after the highly rated Amin Gouiri had opened his account for the season from the penalty spot.

A goalless draw against Reims on Matchday 1 was hardly the ideal start to Galtier’s time in the Aiglons dugout, but optimism is flowing through the ranks after seeing the reigning champions work perfectly on their own turf with Galtier’s proven 4- 4-2 setup.

Whether Nice can hold a European Championship this season remains to be seen, but their early season form has put them fourth in the table after two games and the challenge for Galtier’s side is now to prove that last week’s result not true fluke.

Les Aiglons have now failed to find the back of the net for two consecutive home games, but it’s been over 12 years since they shot three times in a row on familiar territory, and Jorge Sampaoli‘s Marseille are not known for any kind of defensive determination.

After a success against HSC Montpellier on matchday one, which was marred by spectator problems, Sampaoli’s new look Marseille – full of offensive talent – tried the two-to-two against a team from Bordeaux, which is still in disarray.

Les Girondins traveled to the Orange Velodrome after losing on day one to newly promoted Clermont Foot 63 and appeared to suffer yet another defeat Cengiz under and Dimitri Payet Brings Marseille 2-0 lead by half-time but comes on as a substitute Timothee Pembele and Remi Oudin beaten to secure some of the prey.

Leonardo Balerdi Also in a second-half horror show, Marseille saw red, who have an impressive five-goal record in their first two games but conceding four at the other end of the pitch shows Sampaoli is cause for concern.

The Olympic coach lamented the “happy” comeback of Bordeaux in the second week of the game, but cannot address these two lost points to improve his team’s away ability. Marseille have just taken two wins from their last 14 league games on the road.

That run also included a dismal 3-0 loss to Nice at Allianz Riviera in March, but Marseille prevailed 3-2 at home a month earlier and haven’t lost back-to-back games on Nice grass since 2015.
