Le Havre Team News

A late goal conceded in the 15th round marred what was otherwise a relatively solid performance by Le Havre, extending their run without a win to four games. Their offensive capabilities have been notably lacking in their inaugural season back in the top flight, with the team scoring the second-fewest goals at this point in the domestic league (13), including just one goal in their last four matches.

Le Havre has managed to secure victory only once in their previous nine top-flight encounters (a 2-1 win against Toulouse). However, under Luka Elsner’s management, they have never experienced three consecutive losses in all competitions, a streak that may be at risk this upcoming weekend.

Mathieu Gorgelin is expected to remain absent from the Le Havre squad until at least the end of December as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury.

Yoann Salmier scored the only goal in the recent defeat to Strasbourg, marking his first goal of the campaign, while Arthur Desmas conceded multiple goals for the second consecutive match. Nabil Alioui leads the team with four goals in this competition, but he has not found the net since Round 6 when he and Mohamed Bayo scored in a 2-1 victory against Clermont.

Nice Team News

Following a minor setback in their pursuit of the title with a 1-0 defeat against Nantes, Nice regained momentum last week by scoring multiple goals for the fourth time in the current domestic league season. Accumulating 32 points from 15 Ligue 1 games so far, this marks their second-best start to the league when considering three points for a win, only three points less than their tally at the same stage in the 2016-17 season.

Nice remains unbeaten in their last eight encounters against newly promoted teams, conceding a mere three goals during this stretch. Francesco Farioli’s team has conceded the same number of goals this month (three) as they did in their 12 previous home games combined. Despite their 16 goals scored at this point in the season, they rank second lowest among teams currently in the top half of the table.

Youcef Atal is set to serve another match suspension for Nice due to posting an anti-Semitic message online, Sofiane Diop is unavailable with a broken thumb, and Khephren Thuram is contending with a knee injury.

Gaetan Laborde and Jeremie Boga both scored their fourth goals in the domestic league last weekend, bringing them within one goal of team leader Terem Moffi. Marcin Bulka, leading Ligue 1 with 10 clean sheets, has conceded two goals after maintaining eight consecutive clean sheets.

Le Havre vs Nice Prediction

This is a match in which very few goals are expected, and it would not be surprising if the nets were not touched during the entire match. Although Nice is a slight favorite in this matchup, we believe that victory will not come so easily because Le Havre plays very hard on their field. Therefore, we propose a double chance in which the guests are closer to victory, with a maximum of three goals scored in the entire match.
