Nice and PSG

Match Date: 28 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Allianz Riviera


A narrow win against Lorient extended Paris Saint Germain’s lead over their closest rival, AS Monaco. It also marked their 6th undefeated streak, which also serves as a warning to those who dared to hijack their winning spell.

Although PSG’s lead gives them the luxury to relax, the club has no time for complacency. Everything is possible in football and even the slightest mistake proved to be costly. It is still a long road ahead of the season’s end, thus, there is no room for a lackluster performance.


One of the secret ingredients in PSG’s recipe for success is the depth of its form and players. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, for one has led and helped the club achieve success in many of their matches. Edinson Cavani is also crucial to the squad’s victory. Cavani may not be as explosive as before due to personal turmoil that he has to address, but there is no single moment where El Matador has failed to prove his worth within the squad.
As PSG face Nice to secure another 3 points, the online betting favorite needs to address the absence of their team captain, Thiago Silva. Silva incurred a fractured cheek bone after the clash in Lorient. Nevertheless, PSG is confident that they can surmount the challenges that Nice has in store for them.


Prediction: Paris Saint Germain

Expect Paris Saint Germain to continue their winning streak. The club is pitted as heavy favorite in 12BET and is pegged to win at 2.36. Since the squad has managed to keep a clean sheet in their last 4 matches, going for this betting option at 7.10 also presents a decent value.
