Nice boss Lucien Favre satisfied with 2-1 win over Partizan Belgrade

Nice secured a 2-1 victory over FK Partizan in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday evening as Lucien Favre’s men remain hopeful of qualifying for the knock-out stages of the respective competition.

“It was a good match. We played football, much more forward. There were some appeals, some openings and some speed. I’ve been saying that since June… But we were not good for a few minutes and we took a goal. On the other hand, we had a good reaction. We had to win this game. It’s true, we had a few chances that we didn’t convert. That’s the way it is. At least we created them. That’s not bad. And then we didn’t keep going behind, because there was movement and ideas. That’s the basis I want for the future.”

Owing to the victory, Nice currently have as many points as Partizan, who share an encouraging prospect of making the next round of the UEFA Europa Conference League with eight points from five matches. Köln host Nice in a crucial encounter next week.
