Nice have gone above Strasbourg in the chase for European football next season, after defeating them 1-0 in Ligue 1.
The only goal game when Allan Saint-Maximin crossed for Youcef Atal, scoring his third in Ligue 1 this season with an acrobatic, and clever, sliding finish.
A late scuffle left both sides with ten men, with Danilo and Monaco loanee Samuel Grandsir sent-off – Grandsir had come on just four minutes ago.
Strasbourg are winless in five Ligue 1 games. Nice have won their last four home league games without conceding.
