There are four teams in Ligue 1 who have a game in hand and the matches will be played this week.

The match between Nice and Paris Saint-Germain will be played on the 15th of May at the Allianz Riviera.

The host are currently in 5th place on 54 points, 4 points behind the team in 4th with a game in hand, while PSG are top and have been crowned champions of France.

Nice come into the game having beat Le Havre 1-0 at home in Ligue on the weekend to keep their top four hopes alive.

The only goal of the match was scored in their 12th minute and Nice kept their opponents out for the remainder of the game to take maximum points.

The victory over Le Havre means Nice are undefeated in their 5 most recent fixtures, all of which have been played in Ligue 1.

There have been wins over Lorient at home and Strasbourg away plus draws against Reims and Marseille away.

Trends show Nice are undefeated in 16 of their 19 most recent Ligue 1 games on home soil.

However, they have record only 2 wins from their last 6 home league matches.

Nice have scored at least 1 goal in 11 of their last 12 home Ligue 1 games and have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 3 of their last 4 home fixtures.

PSG travel to the Allianz Riviera on the back of a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Toulouse in Ligue 1 on the weekend.

It is fair to say PSG were suffering a hangover from their Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund and despite taking the lead in the 8th minute, they could not hold on.

Toulouse equalised in the 13th minute and scored 2 goals in the second half to claim a shock victory.

The defeat at Toulouse means PSG have failed to win any of their last 4 fixtures in all competitions.

There have been defeats home and away against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League plus a 3-3 draw at home with Le Havre in Ligue 1.

Statistics show PSG have been in excellent form on the road in Ligue 1 and they are undefeated in their last 22 away trips.

PSG have won 6 of their last 7 Ligue 1 games on the road and have seen both teams scored in 3 of those 6 victories.

Team news: Nice continue without the injured duo of Sofiane Diop and Valentin Rosier.

PSG make the trip without Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Rico, Lucas Hernández who are all in the treatment room. It will be interesting to see if Luis Enrique decides to go full strength or make more changes to his starting XI.

The starting lineup of PSG could have a significant impact on the outcome of this game.

Regardless of the team picked by Enrique, we predict both teams will score and if PSG are close to full strength, their away form suggests they could come away with the victory. A defeat for Nice would end their Champions League hopes.
