Team News

  • Nice have no new injury concerns going into the trip to Troyes but still have a number of players unavailable for selection.
  • Diacko Fofana is expected to be out for six months after rupturing the cruciate ligaments in his knee, and midfielder Kevin Anin remains unavailable due to personal problems.
  • Defender Lloyd Palun is suspended, Moussa M'Bow has a knee problem, while Stephane Bahoken is out with a leg injury.
  • Xavier Pentecote and Fabien Dao Castellana are still recovering from injuries, and Cyril Hennion remains on the sidelines with a groin injury.
  • Midfielder Jean Makoun and defender John Boye are both out with thigh injuries, while Vincent Pajot is suspended.
  • Abdoulaye Sane and Victor Montano have been absent for much of the season through injury and are not expected to feature in this one.

Prediction

  • Nice welcome Rennes to the Stade du Ray hoping to continue their fine home form against a Rennes side that fell victim to a last minute stunner in their local derby with Brest last week.
  • Les rouges-et-noirs had led 2-0 against their Brittany rivals but were pegged back by goals from Benoit Lesoimier and Charlison Benschop, leaving Frederic Antonetti's men having to settle for a draw.
  • Nice also earned a point at the weekend, but they showcased fine battling spirit to come back from a goal down to draw with Troyes.
  • Les Aiglons have yet to lose in front of their home fans, and they will be confident of gaining another strong result after top scorer Dario Cvitanich netted yet again at the weekend.
  • Expect a free-flowing and high tempo encounter on the south coast, both teams are blessed with a multitude of attacking threats, and therefore a score draw is the most likely result.
