Tip Reasoning

Both Nantes and Nancy will be looking nervously over their shoulders as they remain just a handful of points each away from the Ligue 1 drop zone ahead of their meeting this weekend. A common problem this season for the sides has been a shocking lack of goals, with the home team managing to find the net on 15 occasions in 2016/17, while the visitors have fared little better, scoring 16 from their 22 games. With the sides meeting late on in the weekend, other results could put the teams closer to the trap door.

The sides have conceded many more, meaning that they are both struggling with minus goal differences as the season begins its final third. Nancy are in 14th, but that is just 2 points away from Bastia who are in the top relegation place of 18th. It is difficult to predict who is more likely to win this one, as Nantes’ home form has been so poor and Nancy have won just 10% of their away games in the current campaign.

The struggle for goals is reflected in that Nantes top scorer is Emiliano Sala with 5, while Nancy’s is Youssef Ait Bennasser on a measly 3. If either side are to end up dropping down to Ligue 2 come the end of the season, it is clear where the problems lie.

Nantes enjoyed an excellent 4-game winning streak over the Christmas and New Year period, although they were brought back down to earth with a 2-0 defeat by current champions PSG on January 21. Looking at both sides form during the last few weeks, we predict a low-scoring affair on Sunday afternoon.

A draw bet on the game is priced at 21/10 with bet365, which seems decent value.

Our correct score prediction is for the game to be drawn 1-1 and that is priced at shorter odds of 5/1 also with bet365.
