Lucien Favre on the Europa League Conference play-off against Tel Aviv: “For Nice, it’s very important”

“Do you think Nice is the favorite in this play-off?
It’s hard to say that. Logically, we play in the French Championship, so we will be called favorites but I saw the two matches of Maccabi against Aris Salonika, in the previous round (1-1, 2-1), and Tel Aviv was the better team. It was close, but on the whole of the two matches, they deserved the victory, it means that it is not bad. There are very good things, very good elements in this team. And tomorrow, there will be a good atmosphere, 29,000 supporters, that also counts, even if there will also be Nice supporters (250).

“I don’t know if it would encourage the arrival of recruits but it is possible”

Do the Gym’s ambitions make European qualification essential?
The objectives are not yet clear and definitive, so I can’t talk about that. But it is clear that we absolutely want to pass this qualifying round and play the group stage. For Nice, it is very important. We all want to do the Conference League, to play every three days. I don’t know if that would encourage the arrival of recruits, but it is possible.

It’s your first three-game week this season. Does this imply more rotation?
Possibly, but it is especially the sequence of these weeks which implies more obligatory rotations, and four or five changes. For tomorrow (Thursday), we’ll see. As long as we played on Sunday (against Strasbourg, 1-1), there are more than three and a half days of recovery and it’s easier. »
