Nice vs Marseille for the French Ligue 1 championship match on Wednesday at Allianz Riviera Stadium.
The home side, who continues to be coached by French coach Patrick Vieira, that keeps on command since last season, are heading to the third round of the French league with an excellent start to the season so far, having won both of their matches.
Previously, beating Amiens at home and Nimes away from home by the same 2-1 result, putting the team at the top of the Ligue 1 leaderboard in what is a good start for the local side, which aims to reintroduce itself in the fight to qualify for European competition this new season.
Already the Marseille team, which is being coached by Portuguese coach André Villas-Boas this season, is having a start to the season that could hardly be worse than what has been happening.
The historic team is still following without any goals scored so far but also without any added victory, having added 1 point so far as a result of a draw at Nantes (0-0) in the last round, while in the opening round they were defeated at home by Reims (0- 2).
Considering how these first games have been played in the new season by Nice and Marseille so far, it can be seen that both teams are at very different phases in terms of their results and form.
The local team still have an excellent record so far (2 wins in 2 matches), while Marseille are one of the teams that have not won a game yet (not even scored), in addition to the Nice home factor (where the squad tends to be very difficult to beat (lost very few games in their stronghold last year), I think if there is a winner here, it should be Nice.
