Dominated by an enterprising FC Nantes, OGC Nice won at Beaujoire (0-2) by scoring twice in the last quarter of an hour. The Aiglons, who still haven’t taken a single goal, confirm their good start to the season.
To believe that there is only the stupidity of its own public to stop theOGC Nice. The Riviera club continued its good start to the season by winning on the lawn of Nantes (0-2), this Sunday, as part of the 5th day of Ligue 1. This is the third success in four matches for Christophe Galtier’s team who has not conceded a single goal, even counting the 75 minutes from the famous Nice-Olympique de Marseille.
However, after the demonstrations in Lille (0-4) and against Bordeaux (4-0), the Gym delivered a much more ordinary performance. The Aiglons were even seriously jostled by the Canaries, dominators (19 shots at 9, 8 corners at 3). But the Nantes attackers were more comfortable provoking the ball in the foot, like Simon or Bukari, than finding the way to the net.
“It’s a miracle if there isn’t one or two goals for them”, recognized Amine Gouiri after the meeting. We can indeed think of Simon’s strike next to it (43rd), Randal Kolo Muani’s strike on the bar (45th), or Simon’s shot, who had finally beaten Walter Benitez, but who was saved on the line by Lemina (73rd). Therein lies the miracle.
In the process, on his second opportunity of the match (Lemina had found the bar with the head on a free kick in the first period), Nice opened the scoring by Kasper Dolberg (0-1, 75th) on a cross from Melvin Bard. And the talent of the Nice attackers made the difference, once again, with the entry of rookie Andy Delort, who was well inserted in a movement initiated by Dolberg and concluded by Amine Goiri (0-2, 80th). Clinical.
