Nice - Zulte-Waregem will be vital
In the 92nd minute of the encounter between Lazio and OGC Nice, luck escaped the Gym and the bad luck denied them a precious point and allowed the Italians to secure themselves a place in the next round of the competition.
Even though the Aiglons will not be able to catch the Italians, they remain in a positive position to go and join them in the next round, with six points on the board.
Lucien Favre’s men have a two-point lead on Zulte Waregem, who beat Arnhem on Thursday evening (0-2).
The clash between the Niçois and the Belgians, to take place on Thursday 23 November at the Allianz Riviera (7pm, tickets to go on sale on Friday), will therefore be vital. A win would automatically secure qualification for the Aiglons.
