Nice can blame themselves – Dbrief and NOTES of the players (Partizan 1-1 OGCN) – Football

On the occasion of the second day of the Europa League Conference, OGC Nice conceded a draw at Partizan Belgrade (1-1). A counter-performance given the scenario of the game.

Nice can blame themselves - D

Gatan Laborde was not effective.

A week after the conceded home draw against Cologne (1-1), OGC Nice once again shared the points against Partizan Belgrade (1-1). When the meeting had started so well…

The game couldn’t have started better for the people of Niois, immediately ahead in the score thanks to the Englishman Bryan (0-1, 2nd)! This ideal start gave the Gym confidence and surely explained the overall control in the first period.

Laborde, the turning point of the match

Partizan got some situations with the speed of Diabat on the right side. But the real chances were from the French Riviera, like Laborde’s eccentric attempt, or Dante’s header which did not deceive goalkeeper Popovic. Nice therefore deserved their advantage at the break, even if Atal had to save in front of their line a powerful strike from Natcho in the heart of a weak time.

No panic on the side of the Aiglons who regained control of the ball on the return from the locker room. We thought we would attend the action of 0-2 the hour of play. But Laborde lacked spontaneity and missed a huge opportunity! Without doubt the turning point of the match because a few minutes later, the unstoppable Diabat (1-1, 60th) equalized against the course of the game.

Diop hit the post

It was hard for the Gym, badly paid and unlucky when incoming Diop saw his head land on the post! The game was going crazy with opportunities for each team. For its part, Partizan may regret the shot not framed by striker Andrade, who was ideally placed. Nice did well but could not be satisfied with this draw.

The score of the match: 6/10

After an unexciting first period, the game really came alive on the way back from the locker room. The ball was going from one goal to another and the chances were many more. All in a warm atmosphere.

The goals :

– After a ball recovered high by the Niois, the Serbian defense badly repelled a center set back from Pp. (0-1, 2nd).

– At the end of a great collective action, Natcho shifts Diawara alone on the right side in the area. The former Aminois makes a small hook inside and rolls his ball perfectly into the opposite skylight (1-1, 60th)!

The NOTES of the Niois

Maxifoot has assigned a score (out of 10) comments on each player.

Man of the match: Fousseni Diabat (8/10)

Big performance from the Partizan winger! From the beginning to the end of the match, the former Aminois was a poison for the Niois defenders, starting with Bryan who suffered enormously! He is logically rewarded with a nice goal, and could have added a decisive assist if Andrade had not missed his chance. At the end of the game, he also misses the match point.


Kasper Schmeichel (6): relatively unsolicited, the Gym goalkeeper did the job with a good outing from a corner, and an important save on a strike from Andrade.

Youcef Atal (7.5): full of desire and energy, the right side made a lot of difference on his lane. He was also valuable defensively with a save in front of his line. The only negative point, as often, concerns his precision in the last gesture. But it’s hard to blame him as he struggled in both halves of the field.

Jean-Clair Todibo (7): solid, the central defender read the opposing attacks well. He showed authority in his interventions, especially with Andrade at the start of the second period.

Dante (7): always so serene in the duels and the ball at the foot, the captain of Niois shone the recovery. Short game, long game, no problem for the Brazilian author of a magnificent opening in depth for Atal. He could have found the way to the net but his head ended up in the arms of goalkeeper Popovic.

Joe Bryan (4): offensively, the left side was a real asset. He opens the score with his bad foot and succeeds with interesting crosses. The problem is that the English took on water in his half of the field! It must be said that he came across a Diabat in very good shape. Replace the 85th by Jordan Lotomba (not not).

Mario Lemina (7.5): the midfielder was on display! It was out of the question for him to play at the side. The former Marseillais has constantly sought verticality through the pass or through incredible full-axis breakthroughs! His risks taken on the raise paid off, as did his high pressing. Replace the 81st by Pablo Rosario (not not).

Khphren Thuram (4): difficult to say if the sequence of matches is in question. In any case, the versatile midfielder did not have the legs to make the difference. Nor to win his defensive duels in power as he often does. Perhaps aware of his limitations, he tended to play withdrawn. He tried to help Bryan in his duel against Diabat, not always with success. Replace the 81st by Alexis Beka Beka (not not).

Hichem Boudaoui (6): rather shy in the first period, the Algerian international clearly raised his level of play after the break. His aggressiveness and his renewed energy allowed him to throw himself much more often and to be more effective in recovery.

Nicolas Pp (6.5): encouraging performance for the winger loaned by Arsenal. Very mobile, he often sought to crash into and combine with his teammates. An agreement is clearly set up with Laborde, that he has offered two standard opportunities. Despite his imprecise set pieces, he deserved to finish with at least one assist. Replace the 85th by Bilal Brahimi (not not).

Rares Ilie (2): still waiting for a benchmark match, the attacking midfielder has again missed an opportunity to distinguish himself. None of his dribbling attempts worked and the Romanian lost most of his duels. Unable to help Bryan manage Diabat and replaced the 63rd by Sofiane Diop (not not), who hit the post with his head. It remains to be seen whether it was voluntary or whether it was a missed discount.

Gatan Laborde (3): lacking in confidence, the striker arrived at this cruelly lacking in efficiency in front of the opposing cage. Goalkeeper Popovic intervenes well on his shot from a tight angle. But he dithered too much on Pp’s second offering. As a result, the 0-2 ball was wasted and Partizan equalized a few minutes later.
