Adam White provides player ratings following OGC Nice’s 3-0 victory at Angers in Sunday afternoon in Ligue 1.
Clumsy to give away the pen and palmed the ball out into a dangerous area for the third.
Struggled with Kamara, still a little unfit perhaps. Some woeful crossing.
Slow and lumbering at the back.
A little shaky, as is often the case when Traore is below par.
Got forward well to produce a couple of dangerous crosses and was far more solid than Manceau on the other flank.
Unable to protect his back four consistently in the first half or cover as much ground as would have been hoped.
Neat and tidy on the ball as usual, although he is visibly aging and slowing.
Very risky blind reverse ball which led to the first Nice goal and failed to make use of the fleeting space presented in the number ten role.
Easily shut down on his flank and produced some very average crossing. Hooked at half time.
Typically frustrating at times in losing possession needlessly but often skillfully skipped passed defenders in the first half especially and worked more openings than his teammates.
No threat at all, easily handled by Dante and co.
Thioub – 6, Bahoken – 4, Pereira-Lage – 5, Coulibaly – 5, Cho – 5.
Very little to do.
Neat cushioned assist for the opener and was defensively solid before being forced off injured just after half time.
Important interception of a second half cross to prevent a tap in for Diony.
Efficient enough on his wing without truely imposing himself.
Stroked home the penalty, after his long ball forced the error, and used the ball intelligently in midfield.
Consistent and reliable in possession.
Woefully wasted a sizeable early chance but was a dangerous and waspish presence on his flank. His pace on the counter was key to number three.
Neat take and finish for 1-0.
A threat when given the (rare) chance to run at Angers and did well to direct the ball goalwards for the third.
Virtually anonymous, even if he did ‘win’ the penalty.
Daniliuc – 5, Dolberg – 5, Boudaoui – 5, Atal – 5, Thuram – 5.
