Nice Preview

After a testing start to the season, Nice responded at the weekend with their first victory in Ligue 1 this term via a 2-0 success over Guingamp at home on Saturday evening. A goal in each half gave Nice the win, with striker Alassane Plea netting the opener on the stroke of half-time. Remi Walter doubled the lead just a minute into the second half, as Nice ended their losing run to start the campaign. Prior to this weekend, Nice had failed to win from any of their opening five matches in all competitions, including their tie with Ajax, where they qualified via away goals following two successive draws. Their Ligue 1 campaign has been disappointing to say the least, losing to Saint-Etienne and Troyes after causing a huge surprise in finishing 3rd and earning themselves a place in the Champions League qualifiers. Nice lost just one home game in nineteen in Ligue 1 last season, meaning they have already equalled that tally this term for home defeats.

Nice Team News

Wylan Cyprien (cruciate ligament) is ruled out for Nice, while Mounir Obbadi (foot) and Mickael Le Bihan.

SSC Napoli Preview

Napoli were convincing in their opening Serie A fixture this weekend, comfortably navigating their way past newly-promoted Hellas Verona away from home. Last season’s 3rd-placed side were two goals to the good heading into half-time, as a Samuel Souprayen own goal and Andres Milik strike saw them sitting pretty at the break. Faouzi Ghoulam got his name on the scoresheet by adding Napoli’s third of the match, and although Giampaolo Pazzini responded from the penalty spot, Verona could not muster any sort of comeback. Napoli appeared to be a level above their opponents in their previous meeting, proving to have that extra level of quality - much of which will have come from previous experience of playing in the Champions League. They enjoyed an impressive away record in the Champions League groups stages last season, going unbeaten in their three road games with two wins and a draw, before losing to Real Madrid in the round of 16.

SSC Napoli Team News

Napoli have no injury concerns coming into this clash, leaving them with a fully-fit squad to choose from.
