Nice vs FC Cologne: Top Free Betting Tips
Nice and Cologne will be one of the most interesting games of the group stage in the ECL this season and we have high expectations. here are our predictions for this match.
Draw No Bet – Cologne
There is no real favorite in this match because both teams are on about the same level but we think that based on their current forms, Cologne have a better chance to win this match. Nice have had a terrible start to the season in Ligue 1 and have a single win in six rounds. Their defense has problems but their attack has had a serious issue when it comes to the goal-scoring part of their game. Cologne have had a better start and they also impressed us with their game in the last qualifier on the road.
Team Total Goals – Cologne Over 1.5
This game will either be extremely goal-packed or we will see something like a 0:0/0:1 but we would bet on the goals. Cologne have a strong attack and it shows in the Bundesliga right now. They have been an above-average side and their main strength is the attack. The team concedes goals but they score more than they allow. Nice do not concede a lot and they do not score a lot either and we think that Cologne will be a more difficult opponent than usual for them.
Alternative Corners – Over 8
We have two teams that noamrlly take a lot of corners in their games. Nice played twice in the ECL qualifiers and both games had over 10 corners in them. The first one had 11 with 6 for Nice and the second one had 14 with 11 for Nice. On the other end, Cologne took 9 corners in their ECL home qualifier and 8 in their away game in the following week. Both teams will have their chances and we expectt a lot of corners.
Nice vs FC Cologne: Form, Recent Games, and News
Nice finished in 5th place last season and had some good performances, defensively in particular. They do not concede a lot of goals but they do not score a lot either. The team had a good transfer window but the start of the season has been terrible – 1 win in the first six rounds and 4:8 as goal difference. Some teams perform much better in the European tournaments than in the league but Cologne are a harder opponent than most teams in Ligue 1.
Cologne finished in 7th place last season and did not have the best season overall. They score a lot of goals and concede a lot of goals and this has translated into the new season as well. We saw some serious problems against MOL Fehervar but we think that Cologne will look much better in the Group Stage. These are the favorites in this group, so the first round match could easily be the deciding match for the entire group stage.
