Eduardo Camavinga has been one of Real Madrid’s top transfer targets for the last two years. The 18-year-old is seen as a potential successor to some of the ageing Real Madrid midfield core. The French international’s current contract expires with Rennes in June of 2022.
Nice took the game to their hosts and came close to opening the scoring in the sixth minute when Gouiri fired a fine shot but the effort narrowly missed the target. The moment eventually came for the Eagles when they were awarded a penalty after Algeria international Hichem Boudaoui was brought down in the box by Damien Da Silva as he attempted to dribble his way towards goal.
Last year’s beaten finalist Saint-Etienne and 2019 winner Rennes both went out of the French Cup in the round of 64 on Thursday. Saint-Etienne lost 1-0 at second-tier Sochaux and Rennes followed suit with a 2-1 defeat at fellow first-division team Angers. Midfielder Angelo Fulgini scored two early goals for Angers before striker Serhou Guirassy replied shortly after the break for Rennes, which beat Paris Saint-Germain in the 2019 final.
