- Nice leaves Brittany with a point of draw rather happy.
- Stade Rennais has reached three times the amount of Benitez.
- Eighth in the overall standings just three points ahead of OM, the Riviera Club can always dream of Europe.
Do not be picky. At the end of the changing room of Roazhon Park this Sunday at the end of the afternoon, the Nice could have a smile. Mistreated in the game and saved three times by the amounts (a post for Ben Arfa, a post and a bar for Hunou at the end), the men of Patrick Vieira got a rather lucky draw
against Stade Rennais (0: 0). "It's a good result if we look at the first phase when we did not have the offensive plan," the coach said.

The worst attack of the championship with Guingamp (23 goals), OGC Nice did not show much in the first 45 minutes. "We really struggled in the first half to be in the field but we continued to support us," said midfielder Rémi Walter.
After the break, the Aiglons tried to be more offensive, but not very dangerous, except for a shot from Ignatius Ganogo, who was well beaten back by Koubek (88). "We had situations, but we just missed it, we made the wrong decisions," says Patrick Vieira.
Still in the race for Europe
As so often this season, OGC Nice has abandoned its defensive solidity to secure a good point against a direct competitor. After two victories in a row revived in the battle for Europe, the Niçois are still in the running for the final spurt, just three points ahead of Marseille and fifth. "We all dream of finding Europe, we're not hiding it, but it's going to be very difficult," says Dante.

To further believe, Nice will have to do the job at home with the upcoming reception of Caen and Guingamp, the last two championship winners. "If you want to hope for something else, you have to take the six points, we have no choice," added Walter. The Brazilian captain, however, warns his partners. "We can not look at the rankings of our next opponents, they will also feel like they do not want to go down.
If you want to dream of Europe, Nice will also and especially. And given the performance this Sunday against Rennes, there is still much work.
