Reason For Bordeaux vs Nantes Predictions

  • Nantes won just one of their last eight Ligue 1 matches
  • The visitors have lost 13 of their last 20 Ligue 1 openers, losing three of four MD1 clashes with Bordeaux
  • The last 11 meetings between these two have brought eight wins for Bordeaux
  • Bordeaux have won four of the last five meetings between these two to nil

Clubs ready for Ligue 1’s return

Bordeaux versus Nantes will be the first game to be played in Ligue 1 since Lille versus Lyon on March 8th. This break of 167 days is the longest gap between two games in the top-flight since World War II.

We’re hoping for a strong start to the campaign, especially after this clash was reshuffled last minute to move to Friday, with Marseille’s clash being called off. Despite that, the hosts should be able to put on a show – Bordeaux had the sixth-best attack in Ligue 1 in 2019/20, scoring 40 goals). Will their 20/21 campaign kick off in the same manner?

Problems for Nantes from the off

The visitors need to fix their poor form from the end of last season, as Nantes have won only once in their last eight games in Ligue 1 (D2 L5 – at Marseille on 22 February (3-1). They should be worried about that form continuing, as Nantes have not drawn their first Ligue 1 game of a season since 1994/95 – losing 13 of their 20 openers since.

Last term saw them lose nearly half of their 28 games, while they were beaten in seven of their 14 trips. We’ve seen Bordeaux pile on that form already, so we are siding with the hosts in our predictions for this clash.

History with the hosts

Bordeaux have lost only once in their last 11 Ligue 1 games against Nantes (W8 D2) – on February 24th 2019 at La Beaujoire (0-1). This is the fourth time that Bordeaux and Nantes have faced one another on MD1 in Ligue 1, with Bordeaux winning the first three.

Meanwhile, Bordeaux have won to nil in four of their last five clashes with Nantes – including doing the double over them last season. We are backing that good run to continue, with a home win our first pick here. On top of that, we’re backing a 2-0 victory in our correct score prediction, following Nantes’ streak of losses to nil in this fixture.
