Punished by two games of suspension, he missed the trip to Auxerre and will miss the reception of AC Ajaccio.

Four Crocodiles in selection. There is no championship this week because Ligue 2 fades during the international break. A priori, Nîmes Olympique has no plans to play a friendly match, but could organize internal opposition to fill the void. However, that does not mean that everyone will remain inactive. Ueda (Japan), Bratveit (Norway), Omarsson (Iceland) and Doucouré (Mali) have been called up by their respective national teams. Paraguay coach Eduardo Berizzo has made the decision not to call Andrés Cubas to recover from his injury. Nazih was also not selected by the France Under-20 team.
