Marseille and Nice will meet in Ligue 1 for the French Riviera derby on Sunday
Marseille and Nice will meet in Ligue 1 for the French Riviera derby on Sunday.

Nice will entertain local rivals Marseille at the Allianz Riviera in Ligue 1 on Sunday. The game is sometimes referred to as the Derby de la Cote d'Azur, but Nice and Monaco are the two main teams that contest the derby.

Nice are yet to win this campaign. After draws in their first two games, they lost 1-0 at Clermont Foot, thanks to Saif-Eddine Khaoui's sixth-minute goal. Jean-Clair Todibo and Mario Lemina were sent off in the final ten minutes to add insult to injury for Nice.

Marseille, meanwhile, have picked up two wins in their three league games. They returned to winning ways, beating Nantes 2-1 at home, thanks to second-half goals from Chancel Mbemba and Nicolas Pallois' own goal.

Nice vs Marseille Prediction

Les Aiglons looked sharp in their UEFA Europa Conference League playoff against Maccabi Tel Aviv but have struggled in the league. Nicolas Pepe's arrival, albeit on loan, should be a welcome boost.
