Reason For Nantes vs Reims Predictions

Nantes have been bright under Christian Gourcuff this season with the Frenchman’s men sitting a respectable 7th after four matches. They haven’t exactly been the most exciting team to watch with them creating the fourth lowest xG value of just 3.76 but most of their success has come through their sturdy defence.

They conceded twice on the opening day of the season in Lille but can be excused for this considering that they were up against last year’s runners-up and manager Gourcuff had only joined three days prior. Since then they have been solid at the back with just one goal conceded in their last three matches, keeping clean sheets against two of last year’s top six teams in the process. 

Reims shouldn’t be disheartened by these stats though as David Guion’s men have also been impressive in the early stages of this campaign. They have already beaten Marseille (2-0) and Lille (2-0) but Reims failed to score twice against much weaker opposition in Strasbourg (0-0) and Brest (0-1). 

Reims will be the away side for this match but they definitely would have preferred to host as they have won just two of their last eight games on the road. They have been excellent defensively in their two matches though as they have the second best xGA stats away from home. They did concede against Brest but this was unlucky as Gaëtan Charbonnier was very fortuitous with his goal, scoring with his shoulder after he misjudged a header in the 88th minute. 

We feel Reims should be able to hold it together here, especially against Nantes who have the second worst xG record at home this season. We also think Nantes should be able to get a clean sheet though as they have done so in three of their last four home matches. This fixture was a very tight one last year with just one goal scored across both fixtures and as a result we’re backing ‘Under 1.5 Goals’ to be scored in a 0-0 draw.
