Nimes Olympic

Killer attack. This is a very small team from Nimes who have just boarded a plane at the end of the day to go to Corsica to face Ajaccio tomorrow at 19:00 on the 30th day of Ligue 2. “This week we were affected by a small virus”, explained Nicolas Ousai this morning at a press conference. It’s the flu, not covid, as all the tests I’ve done have come back negative. Sick on Wednesday, Benrahu and Ueda have since recovered and are available. On the other hand, Eliasson and Kone, who were feverish yesterday, missed training and are still sick. A victim of adductor pain, Omarsson did not train this Thursday and is therefore out of shape. Thus, there is no intruder for this trip to Corsica. So the only two attacking players are Benrau and Ferhat, who returned to training on Wednesday. As for the rest of the packages, the goalkeeper Brathwaite, as well as Valerio, were again lost in the squad. “We were afraid that it was the Crusaders, he ended up with a sprained internal ligament. It’s much less serious than we might have imagined.– said the coach. Also missing are Burner (acromio-clavicular sprain), Ducouret, and Philibert. Saint Luce is back. With this hecatomb of players, Nicolas Ousai called out only 16 players to the usual 18, including the young Ponte. Delpeche is called again because Cubas is also disqualified. The Paraguayan had to stay in Nimes for personal reasons. With a workforce made up of half defensemen, a manager should certainly opt for a five-back system.

Selected group: Diaz, Nazih – Paquies, Martinez, Oueda, Guessum, Mbou, Sadzute, Ponte, Saint Luce – Delpeche, Fomba, Sarr, Ponceau, Benrau, Ferhat.

Probable eleven: Diaz – Paquies, Mbou, Martinez (cap), Ueda, Saint Luce – Sarr, Fomba – Ponceau, Benrau, Ferhat.
