Match background Only this chapter

With defeats in three of their opening four fixtures, Nice are on the brink of elimination as they host a Bayer Leverkusen side who overcame them convincingly on Matchday 1 and now need just a point to ensure their presence in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase for the third season in a row.

• With Leverkusen and Slavia Praha jointly topping the Group C standings on nine points, six ahead of both Nice and Hapoel Beer-Sheva, and set to meet at the BayArena on Matchday 6, the teams from Germany and the Czech Republic are in a commanding position to qualify.

Previous meetings
• The clubs met for the first time on Matchday 1, with Leverkusen making home advantage count by beating Nice 6-2 at the BayArena, a Karim Bellarabi double helping the German club to victory in a match that equalled the record for the most goals scored in a UEFA Europa League group fixture.

• Nice's first ever encounter in the UEFA Europa League group stage, in 2016/17, was at home to a German club – a 0-1 defeat to Schalke. That is their only home defeat to German opposition in three such fixtures (W1 D1).

• Leverkusen have won only one of their eight matches in France (D3 L4), 1-0 at Lyon in their opening group game of a 2001/02 UEFA Champions League campaign in which they went on to reach the final. They were on a run of three straight defeats in the country until they drew 1-1 at Monaco on their last visit, in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League group stage.

Form guide
Nice
• After two years without European football, Nice qualified for a third appearance in the UEFA Europa League group stage after finishing fifth in the truncated 2019/20 Ligue 1 campaign.

• Les Aiglons finished bottom of their group in 2016/17 but progressed as runners-up the following year in a section comprising Lazio, Vitesse and Zulte Waregem before going out to Lokomotiv Moskva (2-3 h, 0-1 a) in the round of 32.

• Nice's home record in the UEFA Europa League group stage is W4 L4, that balance maintained this season by a 1-0 win against Hapoel and a 1-3 defeat by Slavia.

Leverkusen
• Fifth place in the 2019/20 Bundesliga earned Leverkusen a return to the UEFA Europa League, where they reached the quarter-finals last season after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League group. They won both legs against Porto in the round of 32 (2-1 h, 3-1 a) and Rangers in the round of 16 (3-1 a, 1-0 h) before losing their last-eight encounter 2-1 to Internazionale in nearby Düsseldorf. They also reached the final of last season's DFB-Pokal, losing 4-2 to Bayern München.

• This is the 1987/88 UEFA Cup winners' sixth appearance in the UEFA Europa League proper and fourth in the group stage. They have never failed to progress to the knockout phase, topping the group in their most recent participation two seasons ago ahead of Ludogorets, Zürich and AEK Larnaca.

• The Werkself were undefeated in nine UEFA Europa League matches (W6 D3) until last season's quarter-final defeat by Inter. They have lost only four of their last 15 European away fixtures (W7 D4) and have an all-time away record in the UEFA Europa League group stage of W6 D2 L3.

Links and trivia
• Nice coach Patrick Vieira was in the Arsenal side that drew 1-1 at Leverkusen in the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League second group stage then won the return fixture 4-1, in which he scored the Gunners' third goal.

• Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz was in charge of an Ajax side featuring Nice striker Kasper Dolberg in 2016/17. Leverkusen's Daley Sinkgraven was also an Ajax player throughout Dolberg's time in Amsterdam (2015–19).

• Nice skipper Dante played in Germany for Borussia Mönchengladbach (2009–12), Bayern München (2012–15) and Wolfsburg (2015/16). The Brazilian defender won three Bundesliga titles, two German Cups, the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Bayern. Leverkusen's Mitchell Weiser was his team-mate at the Munich club.

• Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby is a French youth and Under-21 international who joined the club from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019. Nice defender Stanley Nsoki is his former Paris team-mate.

• Amine Gouiri has scored in all four of Nice's Group C fixtures.

• With 14 goals in their first four matches, Leverkusen are the top scorers in this season's group stage.

• Nice have played more matches in the UEFA Europa League, group stage to final, without registering a draw (18) than any other club.

• Leverkusen's fourth appearance in the UEFA Europa League group stage is a record for a German club. They are also now the highest-scoring Bundesliga side in the competition, on 72 goals, having overtaken Eintracht Frankfurt with their fifth goal in the 6-2 win at home to Nice on Matchday 1.

• The Rhineland club are one of six former UEFA Cup winners in this season's UEFA Europa League group stage – along with PSV Eindhoven (Group E), Napoli (F), Tottenham (J), CSKA Moskva and Feyenoord (both K).
