Le Gym’s hopes of moving away from the relegation zone were dealt a blow with a disappointing home loss.
OGC Nice coach Claude Puel will be distraught at his side’s inability to overcome En Avant de Guingamp behind closed doors in Ligue 1 on Friday evening.
The match was dedicated to fallen French Olympic swimmer Camille Muffat-a Nice fan-and a minute’s silence was held before the contest.
However, the occasion could not inspire Nice’s players to end a losing streak that now stretches to four matches-Les Aiglons have not won in their last seven matches.
Christophe Mandanne scored twice inside 12 minutes-his goals coming either side of an Eric Bautheac effort for Nice-to give Guingamp the three points.
It is a result that pushes EAG up to tenth.
Nice, on the other hand, find themselves in 15th, only five points outside the relegation zone and having played a game more than all five sides beneath them.
