After finally achieving victory with a stoppage-time winner by Julian Draxler in midweek, PSG face an away clash against Patrick Vieira's Nice this weekend. The defending champions had previously lost back-to-back Ligue 1 games for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign under Antoine Kombouare.

That season, they finished second – three points behind eventual winners Montpellier. Nice, who were fifth before the coronavirus saw Ligue 1's 2019-20 play cancelled, will be eyeing improvements of their own this season.

Can they respond after their 3-1 defeat away to Montpellier with a big result against the Champions League finalists? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Nice vs PSG Betting Tips

Daniel Congré scored a second-half brace and Andy Delort had two assists as Nice were soundly beaten by Montpellier last Saturday. The match statistics speak for themselves: 20 shots (13 on target), nine of 12 dribbles completed (75%), more tackles (13) and clearances (20).

All in all, Michel Der Zakarian's men were good value for their weekend victory. So how does Vieira motivate his players ahead of a fixture that historically, they've always struggled in?

In 18 meetings between these sides, PSG have won 13 (three draws, two defeats). Since a 2-1 win in December 2012, Sunday's hosts have only won once in 15 subsequent matches. Those are damning stats and when you look at it like that, surely there can only be one winner?

Kylian Mbappe (diagnosed with COVID-19) is among the notable absentees for PSG, while some of his teammates are serving suspensions after an unforgettable melee against Marseille.

Neymar, Layvin Kurzawa and Leandro Paredes are all unavailable for selection, but Thomas Tuchel has a deep squad to cope accordingly. Whether they perform though, is the question.

Nice vs PSG Correct Score Predictions

Nice possess quality players who can stretch PSG's depleted side – Rony Lopes, Amine Gouiri and Kasper Dolberg among them.

However, I'm convinced PSG's early blip was simply that and Tuchel will urge his side to build on their momentum after a morale-boosting late winner. Multiple players, including matchwinner Draxler, have points to prove. What better way to assert themselves as key players than with impressive displays?
