OGC Nice vs FC Slovacko Tips and Prediction
Nice, who has won their previous two games by a single goal while putting together three strong performances in October, is now showing signs of improvement.
This club struggled to start the season, going without a victory in their first four games across all competitions. Lucien Favre has progressively turned things around.
Nice now holds the 13th spot in the Ligue 1 standings with 11 points after defeating Troyes 3-2 over the weekend.
Le Gym scored twice more in those 90 minutes than they had in their previous four domestic home games, marking the first time this season that they had done so in a Ligue 1 match.
Favre has relied on a strong defensive unit to restrict his opponents in their first three group stage games of this competition, giving up the third-fewest goals while not conceded in the second game in Europa conference league.
Les Aiglons won for the first time in seven matches against Bohemian opponents, and it was the first time they had successfully kept a team from the Czech First League off the scoresheet.
Le Gym is unbeaten this season when they score the first goal in all competitions, although they have lost four points after being in a winning position going into the second half, notably on second match day when they drew the match.
This season, Slovacko’s home ground has not been a benefit, as they have lost six straight games in all competitions at Uherske Hradiste, including back-to-back defeats to Nice and Bohemians long ago.
They have recently been more at ease away from home, earning at least a point in two of their last three games in all competitions and defeating Zlin 2-0 in their previous domestic away game.
Though they have only managed one first-half goal in any away game since the beginning of September, they have not started well recently.
Slovacko has only earned one victory in five previous encounters with French clubs, earning just a single point in their previous two visits while scoring one goal.
On Thursday, expect a methodical and cautious contest between these two teams, but in the end, we anticipate Nice to come out another victory since they have momentum on their side and a deeper and more seasoned group than the Czechs.
