12th placed Nice takes on 5th placed Marseille in the Ligue 1 clash today by 5pm.

Nice have lost each of their last seven encounters against Marseille in Ligue 1, their longest such streak against OM in their top-flight history – they have never endured eight consecutive losses against a specific opponent in L1.

But then, they are unbeaten in their last three Ligue 1 games (W2 D1), after losing their previous three.

On the other hand, Marseille are winless in their last eight away Ligue 1 games (D4 L4), after winning eight of their previous nine (D1). Only Lorient (10) and Brest (9) are currently on a longer run without an away victory in the competition. OM have not endured a longer such run in a single top-flight campaign since February-May 2012 (9).

Marseille have failed to score in three of their last six away Ligue 1 games (4 goals overall), after scoring in their previous 11.

But Marseille’s new manager, Jorge Sampaoli have won his first two Ligue 1 games in charge of Marseille and could be the fourth manager to win his first three top-flight encounters with the club after Charlie Bell (4 in 1932), Mario Zatelli (3 in 1968 and 1973 in another spell) and Élie Baup (6 in 2012).

Though, the both sides are not faring so well, but the goals are sure to come.
