Our football match prediction:
The 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign has been a mixed bag for Nice to date. Les Aiglons outclassed title holders Monaco (4-0) last month, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Olympique Marseille in their last league match. Playing on four fronts could prove to be a big problem for Nice this season and, no doubt, they will be with one eye on the Europa League clash against Lazio when they face Montpellier at Stade de la Mosson on Sunday. La Paillade did well to share the spoils with PSG and Monaco, the two main contenders for the title, and we predict that they will grab something from the football game against Nice as well. A close encounter appears on the cards and we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Montpellier.
