After a draw conceded against Cercle Brugge in their first pre-season match, OGC Nice is competing for the Algavre trophy with Benfica and Fulham in Almancil (Portugal). And for his second match under the orders of Lucien Favre, the Gym heavily lost their duel against Benfiquistas (3-0).
It all came down to the first half: after Rafa Silva opened the scoring early in the match (7th), Argentinian international Nicolas Otamendi doubled the lead after the first quarter of an hour before Gilberto digged the gap before the break (35th). The Aiglons will have to reassure themselves against the Cottagers on Saturday evening (9:15 p.m.). And during the penalty shootout scheduled after the match regardless of the final result, the Águias also won with the score of 5 tabs to 4, after a miss from Youcef Atal.
