OGC Nice continues to surprise in France. The Ligue 1 runner-up defeated Toulouse on Sunday and, remarkably, kept a clean sheet for the eighth consecutive match.
Sparkling it may not be, but Nice continues to perform excellently under Francesco Farioli. A goal from Teremas Moffi proved to be enough for a victory against Toulouse, who had to do without the suspended Thijs Dallinga on the Côte d'Azur. Stijn Spierings played the entire match, and Ibrahim Cissoko came on as a substitute. On Nice's side, Pablo Rosario played ninety minutes as a central defender.
The former PSV player performed well, as Nice once again left the field with a clean sheet. This marks the eighth consecutive time. The last player to score against Le Gym in Ligue 1 was Kylian Mbappé on September 15. However, that didn't help much as Nice left Parc des Princes with a victory.
Not falling behind is also noteworthy; Nice, having conceded only four goals in total this season, has not trailed for a single second. In the history of Ligue 1, it has never happened before that a club did not fall behind after the first thirteen matches.
Nice continues the league next week with an away game against Nantes. The gap to the league leader Paris Saint-Germain is just one point.
