Nice form and stats

5 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. That’s the product of Nice playing as the away team in the Ligue 1 this season. It's a growing despair in Nice as they have recorded three consecutive losses. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on A. Ursea, the Nice manager, as the last three away games were defeats.

This game can not go any worse than the last one, a Ligue 1 home defeat versus Metz with 1-2 on the scoreboard. Preceding that game, the 2-3 loss visiting Olympique Marseille's place.

Nice find the net regularly in their away games. 17 goals from 13 away fixtures in the league. Nice have conceded 14 goals in these away matches. It's worth mentioning that 7 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
