The game between Schalke 04 and Nice is a tale of two teams which have opposite forms in the last few games.
Nice have started their season very well, but are slowly losing speed in their last 2-3 games, while Schalke started horribly but are now undefeated since late September – and have already qualified from the group.
Is this enough for Nice to win?

Nice have produced quite a few good displays away from home this season. They’ve managed to win against teams like Saint-Ettiene or Angers, which are not that easy to beat at their home ground, but also had a good number of draws and losses.
They need to win the game in Germany if they want to stand any chance of qualifying from the group, after only 3 points in their last 4 games.
Nice have shown that they can score goals against any opposition and produce great football, but Schalke is not a weak opponent.
The one thing that the French can rely on is the fact that Schalke doesn’t really need the win and might rest a good couple of first team players.
Since they already have 12 points from their first 4 games, the last two will be focused on rotating players and making sure they don’t get injured.
If they can also bring results, fine, but if not, it won’t be the end of the world. It is worth mentioning that they’ve won their last 5 home games in all competitions.
Schalke 04 vs Nice Betting Tips
In spite of this, we do think that they won’t force in the game on Thursday – meaning they won’t beat Nice.
X2 is a great idea of a bet, Nice to score is another one, while over 2,5 goals is another great idea. The idea is simple : we believe that Schalke will not win, and we believe we will see goals.
Double Chance – X or Nice @ 1.80 or 4/5
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 @ 2.10 or 11/10
