OGC Nice won a pivotal match on Sunday on the lawn of Geoffroy Guichard, against AS Saint-Étienne from its former coach Claude Puel. And the Aiglons were able to rely on their two Vaudois recruits to get three important points (3-1). Now essential in the right lane of 3-4-3 Patrick Viera, Jordan Lotomba even delivered the cross leading to 2-0 signed Gouiri. As for Dan Ndoye, entered in the 83rd minute, he served Maolida for the 3-1 security.

So the two former LSs celebrated their first assist in Ligue 1 this Sunday? Not quite. The action that leads to the success of Amine Gouiri is indeed so incredible that it will logically deprive Jordan Lotomba of his assist. Rather judge. While the neo-international crushed his center, a terrible disagreement between Stéphanois goalkeeper Jessy Moulin and Saidou Sow transformed this “dead ball” into caviar for a Gouiri propelled alone in front of goal. However, as the trajectory of the ball is deviated by the last bulwark of the Greens, the assist should not be granted.

Dan Ndoye, he will not have this bad surprise. And yet, honesty compels to see that his perfect cross to Maolida was actually a completely crushed strike. But whatever. The main thing is not seen in the statistics. But the two young Vaudois play, progress, are decisive. And with them, OGC Nice has moved back to fifth place in Ligue 1. Ideal for confidence four days away from facing Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Omlin aligned and shining

In the other matches this Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais won in Strasbourg thanks to a double from Toko Ekambi (3-2). Nantes was reassured against Brest (3-1) while Monaco and Montpellier drew (1-1), thanks in particular to an imperial Jonas Omlin despite his positive Covid test of the week. Then in the evening, Lille crushed their neighbor Lensois in a one-way “North derby” (4-0) to consolidate their place as leader of Ligue 1.
