Evian Thonon Gaillard vs. Nice

 

Match Date: 08 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Parc des Sports, Annecy

 

Evian Thonon Gaillard

Suffering its 3rd consecutive loss, there is no doubt that Evian has literally acquired the reputation of being a relegation favorite of sports betting sites.

 

Just recently, its encounter against Montpellier ended in a clean sheet. The club conceded two (2) easy goals, much to the disappointment of many.

 

Evian must build and maintain momentum soon. The club has been struggling to come up with a more consistent performance and this has been preventing them from their rise in the Ligue 1 table.

 

Nice

Nice also suffered a frustrating defeat like Evian. However, since they have established a better rank, the pressure to snatch a win is not that high.

 

Nevertheless, Nice should consider the idea that they Evian will be hosting their upcoming match and could pull off a stunner at will.

 

Prediction

Evian Thonon Gaillard 1-2 Nice
