Clean sheet, home form, defensive record and Herelle: The stats from the victory

A look at the statistics from Les Aiglons’ victory over Reims on Sunday during Matchday 12 of L1 (2-0).

A two goal lead and a clean sheet for the first time this season!

Nice hadn’t won by a two goal margin since 24 May against Monaco (2-0). Since the derby, Les Aiglons hadn’t kept a clean sheet. Sunday’s match against Les Rémois came to put an end to an 11 game run without a clean sheet in L1.

Le Gym, effective at home

Nice have only lost three of their last 20 home matches in Ligue 1 (12 wins, 5 draws).

The best defence in the league opened up 

Before this encounter, Reims had the best defensive record in the top five European leagues, with only four goals conceded so far this season. Les Rémois conceded two goals against Le Gym, the same number of goals conceded in their previous six outings in Ligue 1.

Hérelle, on target means a goal! 

Nice defender Christophe Hérelle has had two efforts on goal in Ligue 1 this season, and has found the back of the net on both occasions: 10 August against Amiens and on Sunday against Reims.
