Nice preview: The poor form continues for Nice

For a long time Nice have been close to PSG at the top, but now they are on their way to missing on Champions League football for next season. At the moment, Nice are fifth in the standings, six points behind Monaco in fourth and they've lost five times in their last eight games in the league.

On top of this, Teddy Boulhendi is suspended for this match, while Morgan Sanson, Youssouf Ndayishimiye, and Sofiane Diop are injured.

Player to watch: Oumar Diakite

With five goals in Ligue 1 this season, the young forward from Ivory Coast is currently Reims' second-top goalscorer, only behind Teddy Teuma with six goals. More importantly, he's in good form, so he's our player to watch in this match.

Diakite to score first?

It took a while for the youngster to secure his place in the starting lineup at Reims since he only started 11 games this season. However, once he became a starter, he showed what he was capable of, and three of his five goals in the league came in the last six rounds.

Furthermore, Diakite has already been the first goalscorer twice, so he might be an interesting choice to score the first goal against Nice, if there are any goals.
