League 1 – 36th day
OGC Nice – FC Nantes : 1-1 (0-1)
Goals : M. Sarr (55th) for the OGCN ; S. Moutoussamy (29th) for the NCF.
Front of their own supporters, the club azure was struggling to get into his meeting. The visitors took advantage and décochaient quickly the first banderille. On a corner kick by Valentin Rongier, Diego Carlos has put up a beautiful head that flirtait with the part of Walter Benitez (3rd). The last bastion of the Eaglets interfered then to an attempt far from the playmaker of the Canaries (11th), and then saw Kalifa Coulibaly missed the leather on a very good centre of Fabio (12th). Samuel Moutoussamy tried then the left foot but his attempt went right of the frame (16th century). Domineering, the protected Vahid Halilhodzic ended finally and logically by putting into practice their master’s degree. Started by Coulibaly in the depth, Anthony Limbombe is contrary to the good return of Dante, and the output of Benitez. But Moutoussamy had followed, and, with his left foot, was able to send the leather into the net (0-1, 29th). Very inspired, Nice showed then not much until the whistle of the referee at the break.
After the restart, Patrick Vieira launched Bassem Srarfi in the battle, instead of Andy Pelmard. A profitable choice for the tactician in the French riviera since his team was quickly a much better face than in the first act. On a free-kick far left side, kicked by Peter Lees-Melou, Malang Sarr, at the back post, placed a header-winning and trusted the two teams tied (1-1, 55th). In a strong time, the Gym was then very close to taking the lead but the pole blocked the attempt, grazing the right foot triggered by Allan Saint-Maximin (58th). The NCF responds to the tac to the tac and Coulibaly, on a very good service Limbombe, was, in its turn, amounts (60th). More enterprising, the Eaglets grew then to snatch victory. Author of his first goal this season, Sarr was trying his luck in the head, always on a center of Lees-Melou, but it took no part (79th). In the last seconds of the match, the Gym got the match ball on a penalty kick for a foul Charles Traoré on Youcef Atal (90th+3). It tried to do justice himself, but Maxime Dupé stretched perfectly to deflect the strike of the right of the Nice (90th+5). With this score parity, the OGC Nice remains in seventh place (53 points). The NCF, for his part, sees his winning streak stop at five but has climbed to the tenth place (47 points).
