Due to a mostly available squad, there’s only the one fitness worry for the Nice manager Christophe Galtier to be concerned about. Youcef Atal (Thigh Muscle Strain) won’t be playing here.
In our opinion, Nantes will do well to hit the back of the net against this Nice lineup who should get the vital goal that wins it.
