Nice v. Rennes: three good reasons to come to the game!

Here are three good reasons to come to the Allianz Riviera this Sunday to cheer on OGC Nice against Stade Rennais.


After their 1-0 victory away to Clermont last Friday – their sixth win in ten games – Les Aiglons are currently top of the Ligue 1 table for the first time since the 2016–17 season, i.e., over six years ago!

Over the course of next weekend, Paris Saint-Germain (who host Montpellier at 21:00 CET on Friday) and AS Monaco (who welcome Brest to the Stade Louis-II at 17:00 CET on Sunday) will both have the opportunity to move provisionally into top spot ahead of Nice v. Rennes, which will close out Matchday 11 of the league season.


With Ligue 1 now comprised of just 18 clubs, we’ll already be a third of the way through the domestic campaign once 11 of our 34 games are played! There’ll also be fewer and fewer chances to celebrate at the Allianz Riviera in the near future, as after this weekend, Le Gym won’t be back at home until 26th November, when they entertain Toulouse FC, while in December, just two home matches are on the agenda (against Reims and Lens). Every game counts, and Les Aiglons need you!

RENNES are one hell of a team

As the current leaders of their UEFA Europa League group with six points from three games, Stade Rennais have been making life difficult for plenty of sides this season. Domestically, the Bretons have lost just twice – to Paris and Lorient – in their ten matches so far, but they’ve also slumped to a few too many draws (six in total, currently the most of any team in the league). Bruno Génésio’s men sit eighth in the table as a result, but they also possess the third-best attack in the French top flight, with 16 goals scored.

  • Tickets in the Populaire Sud and Ray stands are running out, so you’d better hurry up if you want to join us this Sunday. 

  • If you also want to come along for the ride until the very end, our half-season tickets are now available. Purchasing one today will guarantee you a seat at every home game from the match against Lens on 20th December onwards, but it’ll also give you immediate benefits as a season-ticket holder, such as a 10% discount on tickets for the games at home to Rennes, Toulouse and Reims in the meantime.
