France – Ligue 1 2020-21 season has commenced and this week we will witness the second-round match between Strasbourg and Nice. Let’s take advantage of the high odds before they drop.
Strasbourg started the league with a 3-1 away loss against Lorient. This was not a surprise as they haven’t been doing well on away games in the French first division. As a result, they are currently in the 19th position, pointless and with a -2 goal difference. This time they will be playing at their home ground where they proved to be more productive in the last season. To be more precise, Strasbourg registered 7 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses at Stade de la Meinau in the 2019-20 season. They scored a total of 22 goals and suffered 14.
Nice started the season with a style, welcoming the newcomers Lens by a 2-1 victory. The visitors occupy the 3rd position with 3 points and a +1 goal difference. They are unbeaten in their last 5 Ligue 1 matches. However, they had bad results on away games in the last season; winning 3 out of 13 games disputed. Moreover, they had a negative goal difference of -5 goals (13-18). And this time the defense will be unstable as their central defender Robson Bambu will be absent due to injury.
These two teams are at the same level but the home team is not productive upfront. However, they do better when playing at home. We have seen that Nice is not a threat on away soil, so my bet is a clear victory for Strasbourg. Register for the best betting software and enjoy the best odds in the market. Good luck!
