playing the first meeting at their huge 60 000 arena. During
this match Azzurri can score Nice two-three unanswered goals and it
would be very difficult to pull a goal back.

football player of Nice. But in order to get used to the new team
and, all the more, in absolutely new for Wesley French championship
he needs some time.

goalscorer of the national team of Italy is still injured and that is
why won’t be able to help Nice this time. So, all factors now speak
in favor of the team of Maurizio Sarri. And as we have already said,
