Salzburg will welcome Nice this Thursday, 20th October at 18:00 UK time.

I hope this will be a profitable game for us, just likeTuesday was. Besides the three winning combos, we won are only main prediction -Real Madrid vs Legia and I almost hit the correct score. What is more, Leicester vs FC Copenhagen finished 1-0, meaning that risky bet has been green.


The hosts are in 3rd position after two games in this Group, losing both of them. The team managed two victories and one loss in their last three home games in Austrian Tipico Bundesliga, losing the match against Sturm Graz without scoring a goal.

They failed to qualify for the Champions League group stages after they lost to Dinamo Zagreb over two legs and are hoping now for a good run in Europa League. What is more, the team lost their last home game in the competitionvs Krasnodar and after that, they lost the second game vs Schalke.

I expect to see a 4-4-2 formation fielded by the Austrians, with Soriano partnering Dabbut up front.

Salzburg probable lineup (4-4-2):Walke - Lainer, Caleta-Car, Miranda, Ulmer - Lazaro, Upamecano, Berisha, Schlager - Soriano, Dabbur.


The visiting team lost both of their group games so far, therefore currently occupying last place. With only two goals scored and six conceded, the team shows that their defense is one of their weaknesses.

If we talk aboutNice's last four away games, they managed two wins, one draw and one loss vs Krasnodar.

This last game took place in Europa League on September 29th and the visitors lost by a marginof three goals (2-5). In the first half, Mario Balotelli was the player who scored and Wylan Cyprien was the scorer from the second half.

Mario Balotelli could be rested here, with Eysseric announced in the starting lineup.

Nice probable lineup (3-5-2):Cardinale - Baysse, Dante, Sarr - Pereira, Seri, Cyprien, Walter, Henrique - Eysseric, Belhanda.
