GC Nice will square off against seven-time UCL winners AC Milan at the Allianz Arena on 31st July in a club-friendly.

OGC Nice are coming off a 2-0 loss against Union Berlin. In the five pre-season games they have played so far, Nice have lost three, drawn one, and won one game. Manager Christophe Galtier will be hoping his team gets a win under their belt before their Ligue 1 campaign starts.

Meanwhile, AC Milan registered an emphatic 5-0 win over Modena in their most recent pre-season game. Five different scorers got on the scoresheet for the Italian heavyweights, with Fikayo Tomori, Theo Hernandez, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao and Brahim Diaz netting a goal each.

AC Milan begin their Serie A season with a game against Sampdoria on August 23rd.

Nice vs AC Milan Prediction

AC Milan have looked like a well-drilled unit on both sides of the pitch in the two friendlies they have featured in. It will be an uphill task for this Nice side to win on Saturday and their recent form will certainly not inspire any confidence in Christophe Galtier.

Milan go into the game as heavy favorites and we predict that they will earn a comfortable win against struggling Nice.

Prediction: Nice 0-2 AC Milan
