It’s an enticing poster that will open this Saturday in Ligue 1, around 5 p.m. A meeting between two of the most attractive teams in France in 2023. After a very chaotic first part of the season, OGC Nice raised the bar dramatically under the tutelage of Didier Digard. Les Aiglons are gradually moving up the rankings. A success against Reims would allow them to temporarily return to equal points with Rennes, sixth.
” We are keen to continue our series, to continue our progress, explained Didier Digard. It is impossible to enter the field thinking that we can lose. […] Competition is the most positive thing in football, it’s what makes for very intense training. The players off the bench have always been very convincing, it proves that there is no mood. »
However, the Aiglons coach remains very vigilant, aware that his opponent of the day will have real assets to put forward. Especially since his counterpart Will Still, also suddenly thrown into the deep end, has experienced a trajectory similar to his. ” What Will Still brings? It’s already an incredible unbeaten streak. We feel this Reims team very united, very united, it is a group that is not afraid with a striker who is doing incredible things. With the quality of our players, if we manage to provide so much on a physical level, it should make for a very interesting game. ” The stage is set.
