Boudaoui, Atal, Guessand: update ahead of Nice – Metz
Christophe Galtier gave an overview of his squad with two days to go before Saturday's home match with Metz (9.00pm)
There was positive news to start with from the Aiglons' coach. "Hicham [Boudaoui] trained normally and completed the full session. It had been a while that he'd been training individually and undergoing quite extensive treatment. He was stopped the day before the Montpellier game with back pain. If everything goes well tomorrow, the day before the match, he'll be in the squad."
Other players are still working their way back to fitness. "Youcef [Atal] did part of the session with us today. It's looking good, but he's not quite ready for the Metz match. We'll see for Paris on Wednesday, but it's progressing well. Evann Guessand is starting to run again after his bad sprain, but of course he's not ready yet."
