How the OGC Nice coach reacted tactically after the first defeat of the season suffered by the Aiglons to prepare for the reception of Reims.

We must progress, that’s for sure, but this match should in no way make us sound the alarm. The team had the chances, we lacked few things. »Francesco Farioli, quoted by The Teamkeeps calm about OGC Nice’s first setback this season in the Championship.

If his team lost last Sunday in Nantes (1-0, 14th day of Ligue 1), the Aiglons coach does not envisage a revolution against Stade de Reims, Sunday at home from 1 p.m.

To beat the Champenois and come back to four points behind PSG, Farioli will have to modify the midfield after the withdrawal of Khephren Thuram, injured this week in his right knee. Hicham Boudaoui could replace the brother of Marcus Thuram (Inter).

Compared to the starting eleven lined up in Nantes, Evann Guessand should leave Gaëtan Laborde as center forward.
