Nice chained a fourth consecutive victory by beating Nant es (2-1) at the Allianz Rivera, Friday 20 January, during the 21th day of Ligue 1. Kasper Dolberg has opened the scoring from the penalty spot (20e), before the equalizer from Andrei Girotto on a nice free kick (44e). But KephrenThuram had the last word (45e) to offer success to the Gym, despite several situations for the Canaries at the end of the match.

The Aiglons thus consolidate their second place and are virtually eight points ahead of fourth. They also return to eight points behind the Parisian leader before the rest of this day. From there to say that the suspense is revived in the fight for the title, there is a step. For now, the Azureans are in the race for the Champions League. For its part, Nantes delivered a rather successful performance but was surprised by the counterattacks from Nice. It’s the end of a series of four games without defeat for Nantes, who are losing a good opportunity to get closer to European places.
