Nice with “the best team possible” to “make a hit” against PSG

Will they do better than the draw (0-0) obtained on December 1, for the 16th day of the championship? The only club to have managed to stand up to the Parisians at home this season in all competitions, that of the Aiglons is expected at the Parc des Princes this Monday evening, at 9:15 p.m., for the knockout stages of the Coupe de France. And by putting the means. To advance in this other competition, the coach of OGC Nice, on a series of six victories, has decided not to rotate his group.

“We are not engaged in a European competition, there is no longer the Coupe de la Ligue… I will put the best team possible, assured Christophe Galtier this weekend. If you want to win this Cup, you usually have to beat Paris, which almost always wins this competition. »

“Bring the fans to the final”

And midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is on the same wavelength. For him, the Gym will not go to make up the numbers against PSG. The Aiglons will be at the Parc des Princes to play “a full match” and “with a strong desire to win” according to him. “We want to take the fans to the final and win a trophy,” he said on Saturday.

Defensive midfielder Pablo Rosario and injured right winger Calvin Stengs are out of the game, but Billal Brahimi will make his first appearance. Transferred from SCO Angers, the striker joined OGC Nice at the end of last week. He is in the group of twenty-one Aiglons retained by Christophe Galtier, alongside Dolberg, Gouiri, Delort, Lemina, Benitez and the hinge Todibo and Dante in defense.

A “very competitive” but “diminished” PSG

“It may not be the best eleven, but Nice will field a very big team, analyzes former club player Patrice Alberganti. Le Gym really wants to make a splash in the Coupe de France and is putting the means into it. »

For Christophe Galtier, it is indeed “an important match for the club, important for the group and for us the coaches” which is announced this Monday evening. And the coach prepared himself: “We know that we are going to be dealing with a very competitive team, even if it is diminished. Deprived of Sergio Ramos, injured in a calf on Thursday, PSG will also have to do with Lionel Messi’s Covid-19, which has visibly diminished the Argentine star.
