The last match of the third leg of Ligue 1 takes place only on Wednesday and puts them face to face Nice and Marseille.
The season started excellent. He defeated Amiens and Nimes with the same 2-1 score. He now has a more difficult first test, but he meets an opponent out of shape. It is a group that has very good performances at home, where it suffered a single failure in 2019 in Ligue 1. I also mention that this year has never received more than one goal on home soil.Coly was eliminated in the duel with Nimes and thus suspended. Danilo and Atal will be missing, both with medical problems.
He surprised by the very poor game played in the first two rounds. He collected only one point from the move to Nantes, and in the first round was defeated at home by Reims. He did not even manage to register empty until the moment. Last season he usually had traveling problems, where he had oscillating evolutions.Thauvin is very close to 100% physical recovery and could play for a few minutes. There are no other cash issues.

Football Prediction of the Day Nice vs Marseille
In the last season, both direct matches were very close and ended with only one goal scored. Nor in this season I expect a very spectacular duel. Marseille have so far played very weak in attack and have not scored any goals in two matches.Although he has performed well so far, Nice does not inspire my confidence when it comes to the offensive line. This duel could be a very balanced one and I don’t think it will play against it.
