Match Preview

  • RC Strasbourg’s 3-1 away defeat to Lorient (August 23) made it four Ligue 1 (L1) games without a win (D2, L2) and saw their tendency to leak second-half goals exposed again. Tellingly, 11 of the last 12 league goals they conceded have come after the 50th minute, while they have not trailed at half-time in any of their last 12 L1 matches.
  • However, ‘Le Racing’ have lost only one of their last five home league games (W3, D1, L1) and it’s worth noting that they haven’t lost their first L1 home match of the season since earning promotion to this level in 2016/17 (W1, D2). Leading the overall L1 H2H stakes (W11, D11, L7), they haven’t lost here against Nice in three meetings (W2, D1).
  • Finishing the curtailed 2019/20 season five places above Strasbourg in 5th place, Nice are unbeaten in five L1 matches (W3, D2) after beating RC Lens 2-1 (August 23). Nine of their last ten league games saw both teams scoring, and they have conceded first in their last three outings (W2, D1).
  • Despite owning a poor H2H league record in Strasbourg (W1, D6, L10), Nice have lost only one of their last six L1 away openers (W2, D3, L1). Each of the three games won/lost witnessed a goalless second half and saw the winner on the day score inside the first ten minutes.
  • Players to watch: Mehdi Chahiri’s goal for Strasbourg against Lorient was the ninth time in ten goalscoring league games that he has netted his side’s opener.
  • Danish striker Kasper Dolberg has scored three times in four L1 games, netting Nice’s final goal of the game in his last eight goalscoring outings.
  • Hot stat: Going back to August 2002, a whopping 13 of the last 15 L1 H2Hs have seen the away side on the day fail to score before HT. Within that sequence, each of the last three L1 H2Hs have produced a goalless second half.
