Nice-Montpellier, composition: big surprise in the 11 of the Aiglons


By: Manu Tournoux

Nice and Montpellier face each other this Friday evening for the 25th day of Ligue 1 (9 p.m.). Here is the expected lineup for the Aiglons.

After four consecutive matches without the slightest success, OGC Nice intends to raise the bar to satisfy its ambitions in the final sprint. Long runner-up to Paris Saint-Germain, Francesco Farioli’s team has fallen to fifth place in Ligue 1.

In this context, the reception of Montpellier, an opponent within its reach on paper, looks like an ideal opportunity, this Friday evening, at the opening of the 25th day of Ligue 1 (kick-off at 9 p.m.). And the young Italian technician should concoct an attractive eleven.

A surprise in attack

Farioli should still rely on a 4-3-3 animation with his two strong men in central defense, Dante and Todibo, in front of the inevitable Bulka in goal. In the midfield, Thuram is expected to start and bring his projection ability.

For Morgan Sanson, the news is reassuring, as Farioli indicated. “ Morgan (Sanson) trained with the team today. On Thursday he will have his first full training session. He won’t start but he will be in the group“. Rosier, on the other hand, is not qualified for this match.

The expected line-up for Nice : Bulka – Lotomba, Todibo, Dante, Perraud – Boudaoui, Ndayishimiye, Kephran Thurum – Laborde, Moffi, Boga.
