Dante’s 100th game in Red and Black
On Saturday against Paris (1-1), the OGC Nice captain wore the Red and Black shirt for the 100th time in the league. Last January (2-0 against Nîmes), Dante already celebrated his 100th match in Ligue 1.
100 appearances in the top flight, all of them played as a starter. What could be better? Patrick Vieira’s most used player this season (3,046 minutes played after 35 games) put in a typically solid performance against Paris Saint-Germain (87% pass completion). The cherry on the cake being the inch perfect pass to Ganago for the opener at the Parc des Princes (1-1).
"El CommanDante" has made 122 appearances in three seasons with Le Gym, and he is currently only 11 league appearances behind his record appearance tally (with Bayern Munich: 133). A total that the thirty five year old has been thinking about for a while now.
