Nantes hit the uprights twice before seeing the damage on each of the German chances. What discourage Antoine Kombouaré and the Canaries already in bad shape in the championship: “We are disappointed, there is anger because we have to do much betternoted the coach. We talk about realism, efficiency, that’s what we have to learn from this Friborg team. They have six shots on target and four goals and we have three shots on target and zero goals.” What is striking is also, and above all, the way Nantes completely gave up. The defeat turned into a spanking with three goals conceded in 16 minutes.

We concede a goal that we can’t concede
Result, an improbable goal against his camp which tipped the meeting. “We concede a goal that we can’t concedecommented a scathing Philippe Clement. It’s clear for everyone, it’s clear for Alex (note: Nübel). (…) We stopped playing as we can play. And that’s a big lesson today: when you want to play one by one, to force things, you don’t play well.“
Between the marking error on the second goal, Vanderson’s missed interception on the fourth, the slip of Nantes’ Jean-Charles Castelletto, the hand fouls of Alban Lafont, the expulsion of Jean-Clair Todibo, walls Nice and Nantes which are crumbling: the dumplings are chained to offer a fiasco evening to French football.
“In the first half, we had our worst performance since the start of the competition“, summed up the coach of the 11th in the Czech championship, Slovacko. But that was not enough for Nice … “We must lead 3-0 at half-time, raged Lucien Favre after the meeting. We lead 1-0, we have to hold on. That’s all. The two goals conceded are avoidable. It’s hard to digest, that’s for sure.”
Still, Monaco and Nice still have their destiny in hand, it will be more complicated for Nantes who, despite everything, retain a tiny hope. In view of this Thursday, it’s a small miracle
