Nice 2-3 Lokomotiv Moscow

Match Preview

This Europa League (EL) round of 32 first leg clash will mark the first-ever meeting between the two sides in European competition. Nice will probably be helped by the fact that Lokomotiv haven’t played a competitive game since mid-December 2017, due to the Russian Premier League winter break.
Nice’s only game against a Russian side dates back to last season’s EL group stage against Krasnodar. They lost 5-2 in Russia before winning the home fixture 2-1.
Lokomotiv Moscow played French side Monaco in the 2003/04 Champions League play offs, winning at home 2-1 but losing the reverse fixture 1-0 in Monaco.
Nice come into this EL game after losing their last three Ligue 1 matches and currently sit eighth in the league. Lucien Favre’s side finished second in EL group K behind Lazio.
On the other side, Lokomotiv Moscow are leaders of the Russian Premier League with an eight points margin over Zenit St Petersburg and finished top of EL group F.
Players to watch: Nice’s best player so far this season has been Mario Balotelli who has 13 goals in L1. The 27-year-old Italian also found the net four times in his last five EL matches.
Super Mario will go head-to-head with 33-year-old Peruvian Winger Jefferson Farfán who has eight goals and three assists in the Russian Premier League, and four goals and one assist in the EL.
Stat attack: Nice have won three of their last four EL home fixtures (W3, D0, L1), scoring at least two goals in each of these victories. The Eaglets haven’t recorded a single draw at home since September 2017 in any competition (W7, D0, L6).
Lokomotiv Moscow have won their last five home matches in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in four of those victories. They have seen less than three goals scored in five of their last six away matches in the EL.
