Nice draw for OGC Nice

Following their fifth place in Ligue 1 last season, OGC Nice could enter the qualifications for the Europa League Conference, directly from the play-offs. However, the Aiglons were not seeded and risked falling on a big entry opponent, like Villarreal.

But in the end, the draw was rather favorable to the GYM. Indeed, Lucien Favre’s men will face the Israelis of Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC or the Greeks of Aris Thessaloniki, who face each other in the third preliminary round on Thursday. The matches will take place on August 18 and 25, in a round trip format.
