Team News

  • Nice right-back Lloyd Palun misses out through injury, while Diacko Fofana and Moussa M'Bow both have knee problems.
  • Stephane Bahoken and Cyril Hennion are yet to return to fitness and Mahmane Traore is away at the African Cup of Nations.
  • Bordeaux will be without Nicolas Maurice-Belay, who has a thigh problem, and Marc Planus has a hamstring injury.
  • Jussie should recover from illness, but Cheick Diabate and Abdou Traore are both away on African Cup of Nations duty.

Prediction

  • The surprise of the Ligue 1 season meet the division's draw specialists when Nice take on Bordeaux at the Stade du Ray.
  • Les Aiglons moved into fourth in the table with a 2-0 win at Lille, with Renato Civelli and Neal Maupay on target in an impressive triumph. Claude Puel's men will be hopeful of earning another victory having only lost once at home this term.
  • Bordeaux have drawn eleven times in a season that has been defined by their inability to kill teams off, however a point would be considered a good result on the Cote D'Azur as they face the intimidating atmosphere produced by Nice's home fans.
  • Les Girondins did not have enough to get a result against title favourites PSG, and with top scorer Yoan Gouffran now departed for Premier League Newcastle, defeat against Nice appears the most likely outcome.
