Nice – Statistics & Current Form

Lucien Favre has shaped OGC Nice into a real top team in France before his term in Dortmund. Meanwhile, the Swiss was replaced on the coaching bench and with Patrick Viera is a very prominent name on the side line of the southern French.

After finishing seventh in the final table of the preseason, the view should now be directed towards the international starting places. The results in the preparation initially made it more likely that the gaze must be directed downwards.

0: 1 against Cardiff, 1: 6 against Burnley, 1: 8 against Wolfsburg. Above all, the defensive to former Bayern star Dante had big problems and allowed far too many goals. But just in time for the start in the Ligue Une these sites were apparently resolved. Against Amiens on Matchday 1, it was Dante’s defender, who scored the only goal in the 94th minute, to score 2-1.

The same result ended the second game against Nimes. Ignatius Canago and the superstar in the team, Wylan Cyrien, scored for the guests. The away win was endangered by the dismissal of left-back Racine Coly, who saw his second yellow card shortly after the half-time whistle. Was the defender after a lengthy injury just joined the team, he has to watch against Marseille again.

Despite some personal worries, Patrick Viera will stick to the offensive 4-3-3 system. Against insecure guests, he wants to squeeze early and cause ball losses of the opponent already in their half. The confidence is high among the hosts after the results so far and between Nice and Marseille a tip on the next threesome of Viera-Eleven does not seem impossible.

Marseilles – Statistics & Current Form

Place 5 and 30 points behind the leaderboard – that was not what Olympique had hoped for last season. Now everything should be better and the preparation went exactly contrary to the current opponent. There was an 8-1 victory to celebrate (against DC United) and further successes against Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne.

With the start of the new Ligue Une season, however, should suddenly work for the troupe of Coach Villas-Boas nothing. As a clear favorite, the sky blue acted directly a home defeat against Stade Reims. At 0: 2 failed above all the highly negotiated offensive, which was actually occupied prominently.

With Kevin Strootman, Morgan Sanson, Dimitri Payet and Valere Germain almost all stars were on board and there were no excuses. Only in the absence of Florian Thauvin the Torflaute certainly can not be moored. Even after the second game in Nantes the goal account of Olympique is still orphaned.

Against the canaries best opportunities were omitted and even awarded a penalty in person by Dario Benedetto. After all, this time the defense was safe and with the goalless draw, there was the first counter in the foreign. On it can build up a little and if in the South Derby against Nice follows the first threesome, then the false start in Marseille is quickly forgotten.

Villas-Boas had Nates Radonjic, Strootman and Germain first stew on the bench and changed them as a wild card. Whether this is a permanent solution or just a pudgy after the weak start of the season, will show.

At least Germain is to be expected again this time in the starting eleven, after his opponent Benedetto could not just advertise on their own behalf. With the exception of Thauvin, there are still no personal worries and tactically the guests are very flexible in terms of formation and formation.
