Nimes has a rooster of no great quality, in opening round was obviously trashed 3-0 by PSG, but could win this match considering poor form of Nice and many absences for guests.
Nice had a bad preseason, with only two wins ( Boavista and PSV) and many losses, specially just before the start of season, when they should be more competitive, they loose 6-1 against burnley and 8-1 with Wolfsburg.
In opening match they won 1-0 against Amiens, but guests remained in ten men at 27° minute, equalized at 81° minute and hosts were able to win only in fifth minute of injury time.
Nice remain with the same losses of that match - Barbosa ( midf.18+4), regular keeper Benitez, def. Atal ( 25+4 6g), newcomer def. Lloris - only Lees-Melou ( midf. 26+4 2g) returns from ban, but guests loose other four players, striker Myziane, Le Bihan, Walter and Sarr, last three all starters against Amiens and Sarr key def. last season.
Nimes without important absences, with performances shown before start of season and in opening match and some important missings - Nice loose key midf. Saint-Maxim ( 6g) in market, so today without both last season topscorers and otehr two-three starters - the oppoent seems not so strong for them.
Odds on hosts dropping everywhere.
