Reason For Nantes vs Strasbourg Predictions

  • Strasbourg are hoping to build on some impressive form of late.
  • The hosts may have recent form, but that only covers up a season of struggle on the road.
  • Nantes have won 4 of their last 5 at home to Strasbourg.
  • Nantes have won 67% of their home league games this term.

Are Strasbourg on the up?

Strasbourg are hoping their recent bounce will be enough to take them into the next round of the Coupe de la Ligue. The visitors head to Nantes on Wednesday night, looking to follow up on their victory when the pair met in September. However, can the visitors defy the gulf between them in the league – and their poor away form – to claim a victory here?

Nantes are pushing for Europe in Ligue 1, while this could be their chance to win their first cup in 20 years. Could Nantes write their name on the League Cup in its final season?

Bounce for the Visitors

The away side have won their last two games, which sees them on the up going into this clash. Despite that, they’re coming into this clash after a season of struggle. The visitors have had their troubles away from home, losing six of their nine away games this season. Strasbourg have scored just 0.56 goals per game on the road in Ligue 1, which could lead to trouble here.

To make matters worse for Strasbourg, they haven’t fared well in this fixture in recent years. With four defeats in their last five visits to Nantes, we don’t hold out much hope for the away side repeating their 2-1 victory in the league clash earlier this term.

Hosts Looking Strong

Despite losing at Strasbourg, Nantes are in good shape in the league. The hosts are in fifth in Ligue 1, with just two points between them and the Champions League. Their record this term has been built on strong results at home, while we expect them to continue that form through this Coupe de la Ligue clash on Wednesday night.

Nantes have the head to head advantage over the visitors, while the gulf between them in the table is telling. They have won 67% of their home matches this season, while a loss to PSG is their only setback in December so far, winning their three other matches. They’ve won five of their last six at home in this competition, a run which we’re backing to continue as Nantes are good value for the home win.

The hosts have claimed five 1-0 wins at home in Ligue 1 already, while Strasbourg have lost to nil in 67% of their away games in the league. Following that form, we are backing a 1-0 home victory when these two clash on Wednesday night.
