The Algerian playmaker appears to be making good on the promise of youth and delivered a fine showing against OGC Nice on Satuday
SC Bastia beat Southern Rivals 2-1 OGC Nice in Ligue 1 on Saturday with goals from Guillaume Gillet and Giovanni Sio cancelling-out Carlos Eduardo’s first-half effort.
Instrumental in the Corsicans’ victory was Algerian international Ryan Boudebouz.
It seems like a long time since the playmaker was one of the division’s most talented, excitingly creative players at Sochaux. However, since those early days his confidence slumped and he ceased to be a consistent influence in Ligue 1 matches.
The North African has steadily rediscovered his form at the Stade Furiani and once again demonstrated his class against Nice.
He took three shots, made four key passes and achieved a pass-success rate of 88.3 percent according to WhoScored.
Most importantly, however, he made three successful dribbles-the most in the match-a sign, perhaps, that the Algerian’s confidence has returned.
