Nice vs AC Milan build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After a decent start to the 2020/21 campaign in which they won five of their opening nine games and were sitting around the top four, but then they fell off massively. Eleven defeats between November and February saw Nice drop as low as 16 with Patrick Vieira replaced by Adrian Ursea, who eventually turned things around slightly to help them finish ninth. Christophe Galtier, who led Lille to Ligue 1 glory last season, has taken the Nice reins but his pre-season preparations haven’t been great. Nice have won just one of their five friendlies so far and were beaten 2-0 by Union Berlin last time out.
Although they did still finish second and secured their way back into the Champions League, AC Milan will have been hurting as they watched rivals Inter Milan lift the trophy that they had previously been favourites to win. AC Milan were top of Serie A between October and February but eventually fell out of the top four completely before a big end to the season secured their Champions League spot. The Rossoneri still have a long way to go in pre-season, playing just two games so far, both against lower league Italian sides.
- Nice (vs Union Berlin): Benitez; Atal, Todibo, Dante, Kamara; Thuram; Stengs*, Ndoye, Boudaoui*, Da Cunha; Gouiri.
- AC Milan (vs Modena): Tatarusanu; Gabbia, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Bennacer*, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Krunic; Leao.
Calvin Stengs picked up an injury in training and misses out on this game, joining Morgan Schneiderlin, Alexis Claude-Maurice and Evann Guessand on the sidelines. Hicham Boudaoui has returned to Algeria following the death of his father. Ismael Bennacer is absent for AC Milan while Jens Petter Hauge has been dropped ahead of a potential exit, alongside Lorenzo Colombo.

Player to watch: Olivier Giroud (AC Milan)
Due to his involvement with France at Euro 2020, summer signing Olivier Giroud has not yet been involved with his new club on the pitch, but the Frenchman is in line to make his unofficial debut against Nice this weekend.
The 34-year-old joins AC Milan as a Champions League winner with Chelsea, top-scoring for the Blues in the competition including four against Sevilla in the group stage. A peripheral figure at Stamford Bridge, Giroud still managed to score 39 goals for Chelsea in 119 appearances, averaging 0.62 per 90 minutes across his three-and-a-half-year stay in west London.
Although he has only just linked up with his new team, Giroud is reportedly in good physical condition, which has led Pioli to include the Frenchman in his travelling squad.
