Established after Morgan Schneiderlin’s warm-up injury, Khéphren Thuram opened his pro goal counter to give Nice victory against Nantes (2-1) on Saturday night in Ligue 1.
The poster of League 1 from Saturday evening betweenOGC Nice and the FC Nantes (2-1), in Matchday 6, was not a “normal” football match. And for good reason. A red card reduced the Canaries to 10 in the third minute of the game, as M. Brisard, the much contested referee of the last PSG-OM, decided to exclude Andrei girotto for a probably involuntary sole on Hassane Kamara. While the Brazilian defender had just cleared the ball …
The Niçois too “personal”
Patrick Vieira’s men therefore dominated the game, with nearly 75% of ball possession. They did not negotiate their power play well, because the 4 attacking players – Rony Lopes, Myziane Maolida, Amine Gouiri and Kasper Dolberg – have too often played the personal card. It is Dante who opened the scoring on a corner kicked by Gouiri (27th). The Niçois did not drive home the point and gave Nantes a penalty, Andy Pelmard blocking a ball with his hand in his box. For an equalizer signed Imran Louza (45th + 6).
The great evening of Khafre Thuram
The Nice evening hero was finally called Thuram. Khafre of his first name. Lilian’s son (and Marcus’s little brother) was not scheduled to start the game, but he was pitched straight away after Morgan Schneiderlin’s warm-up injury. After a favorable full-axis counter, the 19-year-old midfielder gave his team the advantage with his left foot, who is right-handed (62 ‘). For his very first goal with the pros, he obviously imitates his father’s 98 world champion, who scored an improbable goal from the left during France-Croatia, in the semi-finals of the World Cup …

Nantes is sinking (already)
With this victory 11 against 10, OGC Nice is revived in the league after two defeats and a draw, to move up to 8th position before the other meetings on Sunday. FC Nantes recorded, for its part, a third defeat in 6 days. With Christian Gourcuff’s team winning only their first match, against Nîmes, they are disappointing 15th in the standings ahead of the international break.
