Wylan Cyprien ruled out for the rest of the season

OGC Nice central midfielder and standout talent over the course of this Ligue 1 campaign, Wylan Cyprien has been ruled out with an ACL injury until the end of the season, which he sustained during an encounter with Caen on Friday evening.

The announcement comes as a sizeable blow to Nice’s title hopes, who saw their grip on the league title slip further away this weekend, now sitting 5 points behind AS Monaco.

The high-profile injuries to Alassane Pléa and Wylan Cyprien, paralleled with the downturn in form of Mario Balotelli, might very well mean that their Ligue 1 title challenge is over.
