Per la gloria de Nissa

It's hard to describe the feeling we have before the quarter-final second leg against FC Basel. For a week, day after day, the excitement has turned to obsession. For the first time in its history, OGC Nice can reach the last four of a continental competition other than the Latin Cup, which we started... in the semi-finals  in the 1950s. 

Since the European Cup is the European Cup, whatever its name has been, the people of Nice have been waiting. 63 years after Vic and his gang, Dante and his team can make history.

The luck of the draw offered them the opportunity to do it at home. Where everything is more beautiful, better and crazier. The players can rest assured: considering the atmosphere created by the 2000 Nice fans at the Parc Saint-Jacques, the evening in the Plaine du Var promises to be fiery. 

After the draw in the first leg (2-2), the away goal rule is no longer in play, so the challenge is simple: the Gym will have to win to continue their journey. Our adventure. During the 90 minutes, the extra time, even the penalty shoot-out if the sides can’t be separated, and until the end of the night if necessary. A single game to carry on the journey. This group deserves it. You deserve it. Since the beginning of a campaign full of ups and downs, itself in the middle of a season full of twists and turns, nothing has been given to our Aiglons: they went and took everything, passing through Israel, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Germany and Moldova.

Now they have to take the rest from us, so that Switzerland is added to the list. For the dream to continue. 

Per la gloria de Nissa.
