Nice realizes the cardboard of the evening
It's definitely one of Nice's best games this season.
A difficult observation to establish before the meeting, given the poor form of the Aiglons, associated with the ousting of Lucien Favre, the former coach.
But precisely, and if the electroshock had worked?
For his first on the bench, Didier Digard, the former Niçois (2010-2015) insisted that his players carry out heavy pressing on their opponents.
Intensity, good play and newfound confidence like Thuram, scorer and passer, or Pepe, author of a double.
Pepe scored twice in Nice's big victory tonight against Montpellier (6-1).

Strasbourg - Lens, a match of madness
What a game at La Meinau.
And there too, difficult to predict before the meeting.
Lens, (2nd) in exceptional form, who fell for PSG at the start of the month, moved on the lawn of Strasbourg (19th), which has not won since October 9.
If the meeting seemed unbalanced on paper, the two teams went blow for blow.
Claude-Maurice first opened the scoring (11th, 0-1) before the express reaction from Strasbourg thanks to Prcic (13th, 1-1) and Gameiro (16th, 2-1).
Openda then equalized with a header on a superb service from Sotoca (33rd, 2-2).
In the second half, chances came from both sides but Samba (71, 77') and Sels (83') were exceptional on their line.
Strasbourg and Lens fought a great battle.

Ben Yedder, the savior of Monaco
You have to go back to October 30 to find a full match for Ben Yedder in the ASM jersey.
Since then, entries 20 minutes from time, exits during the match... And yet.
The French international is indispensable for his team.
Entering the game in the 62nd, Ben Yedder allowed Monaco to snatch the point of the draw thanks to his superb header on an excellent service from Jakobs in the very last minutes of the match (90 + 2nd, 2-2).
Captain Ben Yedder is still there.

Montpellier hit rock bottom
Black evening for Montpellier, dryly beaten 6-1 against Nice.
The worst may not even be defeat.
But certainly the state of mind displayed by the Montpellierans.
Not the slightest burst of pride.
Maybe Pitau's men will get it by looking at the standings.
With this defeat, Montpellier have 17 points, only three more than Brest, first relegated.
