Can we expect a significant change from the starting XI that played against Lyon?
"There is little opportunity for change, little competition for playing time. You can't tell your players that they are going to be left out of the team, it'd be a lie, they know the reality of the squad. On the other hand, there are some options to improve different sectors. We conceded way too many goals. The ability to defend as a block, we are very average. And it's hard to create chances. We all have to do more, to have a better balance. Our game must be much more attractive again and we can project ourselves more quickly, for longer periods, and more often."
Nice are riding a three-month unbeaten streak. What are their strengths?
"They had a lot of new players at the start of the season, with significant recruitment but little cohesion. It took some time to adapt. The team is (now) very compact, it defends with great seriousness, and everyone is in unison on this desire to recover the ball. It has quality players on the offensive level, Moffi has arrived, and players are returning to form, I am thinking of Nicolas Pepe. There is a very interesting attacking trio, and with players who have taken the measure of what Ligue 1 is, others are growing. It's a very homogeneous team."
