On-loan midfielder Elliot Grandin believes calm heads will ensure Nice avoid relegation from Ligue 1.
With three games remaining the Black and Reds are three points clear of danger but have slipped into a tight bunch following back-to-back defeats.
They travel to European hopefuls Toulouse on Monday night and, with a final-day trip to Lyon also to come, concerns are beginning to rise on the Cote d'Azur.
Grandin, who joined on loan from Blackpool in the winter transfer window, believes his side will retain their top-flight status though - as long as they avoid panic.
"We are under pressure but we must remember we are not alone. Other teams will be worrying as well," he told the club's official website, www.ogcnice.com.
"We are in a difficult situation but I was aware of that before I arrived. We still have our own destiny in our hands and we must be calm.
"There are nine points still at stake and if we can collect three points at Toulouse that will be a major step towards staying up."
Toulouse's European hopes have been left hanging by a thread following a poor run of one win in six games.
Adrien Regattin will return from suspension for their penultimate home fixture and he admits they can not afford to drop any more points if they are to play in Europe next term.
"We must take nine points from these last three games to get into Europe," he told the club's website, www.tfc.info.
"We feel able to despite our bad run. I trust in the team.
"There are simply three finals to win. We realise we have had a remarkable season already, but we have the chance to do something extraordinary."
Toulouse will be without midfielder Franck Tabanou who has been ruled out of their final three games with a thigh injury.
