After four defeats in the last five matches, Nantes travel to Nice to face Lucien Favre’s side in what is anticipated to be another difficult Ligue 1 fixture on Sunday.
The start of the season has been tricky for Les Canaris. Results have been poor so far, gathering just 10 points from 11 matches keeping them only two spots above the relegation zone. Currently 14th in the table, Antoine Kombouaré’s side will face another side who have discovered the drawbacks of playing in domestic and European competitions simultaneously.
Nice, meanwhile, sit 13th, two points ahead of Nantes. Les Aiglons’ right-back Youcef Atal could miss the game due to an adductor issue and, having come off injured against Auxerre, Andy Delort won’t make his return until the start of November. For Nantes, full-back Fabien Centonze is working his way back to full fitness after his move from Metz and Charles Traoré remains a long-term absentee.
Nice have won the last two encounters in Ligue 1 while Nantes edged Christophe Galtier’s Nice in the final of Coupe de France via a 1-0 score line last season.
