Ended ! Draw between Nice and Strasbourg!
No winner in this duel, despite a very lively end to the match where the two teams could have snatched victory! After two days, Nice and Strasbourg have therefore still not won. Delort and Gameiro are the scorers of the day.
Thuram also imprecise
The Aiglons midfielder took his chance from outside the area but narrowly missed the Alsatian frame.
Ajorque is missing!
Opportunity for Strasbourg! After a quick movement, Ajorque is served in a backward position in the area. He rushes to strike. It is largely out of scope.
Diarra lights a wick
Far from the Nice goal, Diarra tries a powerful shot in one touch. It does not pass far from the right skylight.
Lotomba gives way
He is replaced by Daniliuc who will probably try to bring his size to set pieces.
6 minutes of additional time
Still several possibilities for both teams to avoid the draw!
Golden free kick for Nice
Ramsey dashes to 25 meters … it is well above the goal.
Corner for Nice
It’s played quickly and boxed by Sels du poin in front of Dante. New chance to come.
Nice tries everything
Les Aiglons finish this game very strong! But Strasbourg still holds the point of the draw, for the moment.
Two new Strasbourgers on the ground
Nyamsi and Le Marchand collided when taking the ball past Rosario and their own goal. They will have to grit their teeth, Nice having no more change.
Knocked down by Delort, the incoming chose to progress in the middle and alerted Sels with a powerful shot, pushed back for a corner. It does nothing.
Lotomba tries his luck
Finally an attempt for the Aiglons. Lotomba makes the difference in the opposing camp and strikes from afar. His shot is slowed down and then captured by Sels.
Latest changes for Strasbourg
Gameiro, Aholou and Bellegarde are replaced by Ajorque, Diarra and Senaya.
Atal too greedy
After a corner from Ramsey, the ball returns to Atal at the far post. His dribble does not work and Strasbourg recovers the goal clearance. Bellegarde is on the ground in his area.
Le Gym finishes strong
Carried by the energy of its entrants, Nice has been pushing hard for a few minutes, managing to stay at the forefront.
A little too much commitment for the middle of the Aiglons on a tackle in front of Thomasson.
Done for Djiku
Exhausted, he was replaced by Perrin for the last quarter of an hour. Ilie leaves in favor of Atal on the Nice side.
Djiku can’t take it anymore
The Djiku defender goes to the ground and seems to suffer from cramps. He can still hold his place, for the moment.

Stengs lacks precision

What a save from Schmeichel!!
Diallo is very close to equalizing from the start of the second act. But just in front of the goal, he stumbles on a huge Schmeichel, author of a very classy firm hand save.
Start of the second half!
Strasbourg kicks off the second act.
Reactions to the break (Canal+Sport)
Thomas Delaine: “The pace is weird. We’re going to have to be sharper to get chances. Defensively, there are 2-3 jumps in concentration that have to be erased. It’s played on details, we have to rectify that and recharge your batteries at the break before attacking with more intensity”.
Jean-Clair Todibo: “We lead, it’s good for us and our confidence. Our striker opens his counter at home. It’s pretty good in terms of content even if it’s sometimes sterile. We need to find each other more. We try to take our time, find gaps, with the quality of our offensives, we have to create situations. Kasper is great, he arrived not long ago. We manage to understand each other well, he doesn’t There’s no language barrier since we all speak English. I think his integration is going well.”
1-0 for the Gym at the break of a match which is still slow to take off! More determined, the Aiglons surprise a Strasbourg which is struggling to create opportunities.
The Smart Merchant
A belt on Stengs is worth a logical card to the Strasbourg defender.
4 minutes of added time
The Nice always keep the ball in these last minutes.
The Nice striker complains of yet another blow to the referee. Nice recovers the fault a few moments before the break.
Stengs solicits Salts
At the conclusion of a counter flash, Stengs controls then strikes from the left in the box. Salts dismisses the end of the gloves in a corner, which gives nothing.
Nice still offensive
Like a center from Lotomba and a missed transmission from Thuram, the Niçois tried to drive the point home before the break, against an opponent still not in the game.
Beaten on one of the first adverse accelerations, Strasbourg pays its wait-and-see attitude in this first act. The visitors are forced to wake up to avoid another defeat.
Delort takes Sels on the wrong foot on his penalty! He strikes hard with his right into the small left net, it’s unstoppable and it’s 1-0 for Nice!
The Strasbourg defender receives a card in addition to this penalty.
PENALTY FOR NICE!
Gouiri’s blistering acceleration is rewarded after a missed tackle from Nyamsi!
A locked match
Spaces are still rare at the Allianz Riviera, even if the Gym is being discovered.
Ilie does not fit
The young Romanian brushes a shot from the right on the left side of the surface. The ball slips by while Delort was still on the ground. It was Nice’s first shot of the match.
Gouiri is looking for Delort
Superb relaxation from Djiku to remove the ball from the head to Delort, who was present in front of goal. Strasbourg no longer stands out.
Dante involuntarily clears a ball right in the lower abdomen of the Alsatian midfielder. He must be treated, the game is interrupted.
Nice all in control
The ball remains in the feet of Nice in the opposing camp, but the surface of Sels is still well protected. The first opportunity is still awaited.
Schmeichel still there!
New save from the Danish goalkeeper! He relaxes perfectly to push Djiku’s volley back on his line after a corner. The referee then orders a cool break in this first act.
Diallo succeeds in his control in the area but is countered by the return of Todibo, who concedes the corner.

Schmeichel wins his duel with Gameiro!
Aholou infiltrates in the axis and launches Gameiro on the left, which stumbles on the rookie from Nice. In the process, Thuram relieves his defense.
A very messy game
Neither on one side nor on the other the players manage to put the game down and chain the passes. The ball navigates between the two camps without great danger.
First corner for Strasbourg
On the right, Bellegarde finds the penalty spot, where Thuram wards off the danger with a powerful header.
Salts already shines
Le Marchand is very close to deceiving his goalkeeper on a brushed cross from Thuram. He finally lets Sels extend for a corner with a nice flight.

Served back, Aholou hooks before falling at the entrance to the surface. Logically, he does not get a penalty.

The kick off of the match is given by the Strasbourgeois, good match to all!
Schmeichel’s words before kick-off (Canal+Sport)
“I’ve already heard a lot about the atmosphere here, I played a few games there for Denmark. I was impressed. I can’t wait.
I had come to the end of the story with Leicester. I needed a challenge, a championship, a different language and culture to get out of my comfort zone. When the offer presented itself, I immediately accepted.
Everyone has been great with me, I’m waiting to start. At the start of the season everyone has to find their rhythm. All games are important, regardless of the opponent.”
The end of the multiplex to wait
It is a multiplex rich in goals and twists which will close in a few minutes before the kick-off between Nice and Strasbourg.
