Terem Moffi to Score Anytime

The January capture of Terem Moffi by Nice was seen as a very savvy move in the market and the promising Nigerian striker finally got off the mark for his new club against Monaco last week. Moffi – who had been so prolific in the first half of the campaign with Lorient, bagged two goals at Monaco and he should be brimming with confidence on Friday as a result. With that in mind, the 23-year-old looks like an excellent pick in the anytime goalscorer stakes.

Nice vs Auxerre Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Nice vs Auxerre line-ups and team news for Friday’s Ligue 1 clash between Nice and Auxerre below.

Nice

Joe Bryan, Nicolas Pepe, Youcef Atal and Marcin Bulka are all out injured for Nice. Following their 3-0 win at Monaco last time out, Les Aiglons could select the same XI on Friday as they aim to replicate their excellent showing in the Principality. Nice could move into sixth spot with the right results this week.

Predicted Lineup for Auxerre: Schmeichel – Lotomba, Ndayishimiye, Todibo, Dante, Amraoui – Ramsey, Boudaoui, Thuram – Laborde, Moffi

Auxerre

Elisha Owusu is listed as Auxerre's only injury concern and the midfielder isn't expected to return to the fold until May. Auxerre's 1-0 win at Lorient last week was their second victory on the spin in Ligue 1 and the relegation contenders have jumped up to 16th place in the table.

Predicted Lineup for Auxerre: Radu – Raveloson, Jubal, S. Toure – Zedadka, Massengo, B. Toure, Mensah – Dembele, Perrin, Abline

Player to Watch – Khéphren Thuram

Khéphren Thuram was virtually unplayable last week against Monaco and the marauding 21-year-old midfielder finished the game with a goal and an assist in Nice’s 3-0 win. Time and time again, Thuram broke Monaco’s lines with well-timed runs from deep and the schemer will hope to have a similar impact on Friday against Auxerre.
