Nice predicted XI v Clermont: Khéphren Thuram a doubt, Jordan Lotomba out

Khéphren Thuram, who is recovering from an adductor injury, is a doubt to start for OGC Nice when they face Clermont Foot on Friday night. 

The France international has been involved in a mixture of team and individual training as he looks to shake off the niggle. It is not unthinkable therefore that Thuram will start from the bench. He also missed last weekend’s victory over Olympique de Marseille through suspension with Hicham Boudaoui coming into the side to replace him. 

Jordan Lotomba, who started that match against OM, withdrew with a muscular injury, and he is now set for a spell on the sidelines, alongside Sofiane Diop, who is once again unavailable for Friday night’s Ligue 1 encounter. Youcef Atal, Nice’s other option at right-back is suspended (both by the club and by the LFP) meaning that Pablo Rosario is set to fill in. 

Nice likely lineup v Clermont Foot

Marcin Bulka; Melvin Bard, Dante, Jean-Clair Todibo, Pablo Rosario; Hicham Boudaoui, Youssouf Ndayishimiye, Morgan Sanson; Jérémie Boga, Terem Moffi, Gaëtan Laborde.
