OGC Nice welcomes FC Nantes for the 21st day of Ligue 1, this Friday (9 p.m.). Here is all the essential information about the match.
Solid runners-up in Ligue 1, OGC Nice has the opportunity to temporarily distance itself from Olympique de Marseille this Friday evening, at the start of the 21st day of the French championship. For that, it will be necessary to tame FC Nantes, ninth in the standings. This interesting poster between two former champions should therefore be undecided, especially since the two formations will be amputated by injuries, suspensions, cases of Covid-19 and other departures at the African Cup of Nations.
