FC Sheriff will look to overturn a one-goal deficit as they travel across Europe to the Allianz Riviera, France. Nice travelled to Chișinău, the capital of Moldova, for the first leg, where they had an unconvincing 0-1 win thanks to an added-time first-half goal from Amraoui, an academy player. The match is set to kick off at 8:00 PM (UTC) Thursday.
The Eaglets come into the game with red hot form. They are unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions. It includes wins against Marseille, Lille and Monaco – three of the top 6 Ligue 1 teams.
FC Sheriff finished top of the Moldovan league table with 33 points in 14 games. They had just one loss in the league campaign and conceded just five goals! Their form sheet isn’t bad, either. They have five wins and two losses across their last seven games.
The French side will miss some key players like Nicolas Pépé, Youcef Atal and Sofiane Diop. The three players have combined for 9 goals and 4 assists in the league. The other missing players are Antoine Mendy and Joe Bryan
The Wasps will be going over to Nice with a full squad.
Our first pick is Terrem Moffi, scoring anytime in the match at odds of 2.15 (+115 American; 23/20 Fractional).
Reason: Terrem Moffi will be the threat to watch out for. He has the highest non-penalty goals in the current Ligue 1 campaign – 14.
You may also take the value bet of two goals or more to be scored (Over 1.5) at 1.41 (-244; 41/100).
Reason: Given both teams’ attacking prowess and the fact it’s just one goal difference between both coming into the game, it should be an end-to-end affair.
