Third place Nice will be looking to move a step closer to Champions League qualification on Saturday as they welcome top spot PSG to the Allianz Rivera on Ligue 1 matchday 27. The kick-off is scheduled for 3 PM EST.

Nice is enjoying an impressive campaign, but they’ve only notched one win in their last four league appearances after playing to a scoreless draw with Strasbourg last weekend. Paris meanwhile, beat Nantes 3-1 on Matchday 26 and have only tasted defeat twice in France. However, PSG was shocked by Nantes on February 19th.

This is the second meeting of the Ligue 1 campaign between the two sides, with the first ending in a goalless stalemate. Nice and PSG did also clash in the French Cup Round of 16, with the hosts beating Paris on penalties.

The under at +108 is going to offer serious value here since the last two encounters ended 0-0. If you’re new to soccer betting, read this soccer betting guide for more info.

Nice Looking for Huge Points

Christophe Galtier’s men haven’t exactly enjoyed a ton of success against PSG in recent memory, despite beating them on spot-kicks in cup play. They’ve only won once in their last 17 Ligue 1 games versus Paris, with that lone victory coming in 2017.

Nice cruised past Versailles in the Coupe de France semifinals mid-week, with youngsters Amine Gouiri and Kasper Dolberg both finding the back of the net. But, the side has actually struggled in the final third in the top flight this term, scoring just 37 times in 26 outings. Galtier’s group have only netted one goal in their previous four league fixtures as well.

Strasbourg, who are just three points behind Nice in the table, absolutely outplayed them last weekend. Nice failed to register a shot on target and had a mere three attempts in total, with the attack looking toothless.

That being said, they’ll have a tall task ahead against a PSG backline that is very stable. Gouiri, who leads the squad with 10 goals and seven assists, will be looking to continue his brilliance in a big game that can take them into second spot if three points are secured, depending on what Marseille does at home versus Monaco.

Paris Flying High

After losing the title last term to Lille, PSG has returned with a vengeance in 2021/22. The Parisiens are 15 points clear at the top and have shown no signs of slowing down as they remain huge favorites in the Ligue 1 odds. Paris has bagged a league-best 56 goals while conceding a mere 23, with Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe leading the line with 14 goals and 10 assists in yet another world-class campaign for the French international.

It was the Mbappe show once again against St. Etienne. Despite the visitors going up a goal early in the first half, the 23-year-old quickly responded and netted a brace within a span of just five minutes before laying on an assist for Danilo Pereira to convincingly seal the three points for PSG.

Although Mauricio Pochettino’s men haven’t beat Nice across the previous two meetings, the league leaders are an impressive 11-5-1 in their last 17 games in league action. That said, PSG’s two defeats this season were on the road. In a rather unfortunate turn of events, they will also be without their talisman Mbappe on Saturday as he serves a suspension, but Marco Verratti will return to the middle of the park.

Nice vs PSG Prediction

As you can see, Nice and PSG possess two of the strongest backlines in Ligue 1, conceding less than a goal per match. With Mbappe unavailable, who is such an integral part of the Paris attack, I really like the value in the under here. This game could honestly go either way, but at +108 this is a solid bet.

Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (+108)
