Nice will be without the injured Mario Balotelli when they take on Ajax in the Champions League qualifying clash on Wednesday in Amsterdam.
Balotelli, 26, scored the French club’s goal in their 1-1 draw at home to Ajax in last week’s third qualifying round first leg.
However, the striker, who recently signed a new deal with Nice, suffered a hamstring injury during the game, sidelining him for the return leg in Amsterdam and Saturday’s opening Ligue 1 game at St Etienne.
Balotelli’s has since been replaced in the Nice squad by teenage striker Ignatius Kpene Ganago.
