Dante goalscorer, setter, metronome

39 you say?

Dante was simply exemplary tonight, as often this season.

The Brazilian scored his first goal in all competitions since October 2020 and also his first kicked goal since February 18, 2018. He also became the oldest goalscorer in the five major leagues this season.

The defender also impressed with his long game and short game quality.

Dante touched 102 balls at half-time, 152 at the end of the match.

Record number of balls touched in Ligue 1 this season.

Captain essential.

Dante was faultless tonight.

The corners of the Aiglons

Set pieces are a real weapon in football, especially when worked on.

Already dangerous on several occasions in this sector of play since the arrival of Didier Digard, the Niçois materialized very quickly this evening thanks to a corner played by two.

If the combination was not completely clear, it finally allowed Dante to score the only goal of the match (3rd, 1-0).

Brahimi's (magical) double

His coming into play was good for Nice but also for the spectators.

Although the Aiglons won 3-0 tonight, they weren't flamboyant.

On the other hand, the Algerian had fire in his legs.

He first distinguished himself three minutes after his entry thanks to a strike with the left foot, full axis without momentum, at the entrance to the surface which came to lodge in the skylight of Leroy (69th, 2-0).

Finally, Brahimi again distinguished himself thanks to a new, even more exceptional shot from the corner of the surface.

With his left foot, he came to whip the ball, lobbing Leroy, and once again finding the skylight (90th, 3-0).


Ajaccio concedes the opener again

The defense is already not the strong point of Ajaccio.

The Corsicans have the fifth worst rearguard in the championship with 42 goals conceded.

But above all, they have conceded the opener 19 times over the 23 Ligue 1 days played.

Great paradox for them: they were the best defense in the history of Ligue 2 over a season last year with 19 goals conceded.

Terem Moffi must adapt

Terem Moffi's debut with OGC Nice was not flamboyant.

Don't panic, the Nigerian striker has only played two games, 72 minutes against Marseille and the entire game tonight.

But the former Lorient is struggling to find his marks.

Already weaned from the ball against OM, Moffi has hardly been served more tonight.

Only four balls touched for him in the first period, twelve in total at the end of the match.

Big gap from his captain.

Terem Moffi has yet to acclimatize to his new club.
