Nantes – Bordeaux
(Most recent H2H result: 1-1)
- Seen as a serious candidate for the relegation at the beginning of the season, with a tiny budget and without any noticeable transfer, Nantes is the big surprise in this edition of Ligue 1. Bringing Claudio Ranieri and ex-Fiorentina goalkeeper Tatarusanu was the main tarnsfers that the board made. The rest are a long list of unknown names mixed with experienced players like Sala, Lima, Tomasson.
- After a decent game on their field against PSG (0-1) and an unlucky penalty in last minute wednesday (1-1 at Toulouse), Nantes meets a Bordeaux in big trouble, so a good opportunity to take the 3 points and keep its 5th place in Ligue 1. Nantes is a solid home team, with 6 won from 8 games, conceding only 6 goals as best home defense in Ligue 1.
- 13th in Ligue 1 with 6 victories after 21 rounds, Bordeaux is far from what supportes were expecting in august. Hard to be on their shoes today: 2 players suspended (Plasil, Lerager), few players injured ( Verdon, Lewczuk , Pablo), Toulalan leaving the club, rumors saying Sankharé wants the same, Malcolm waiting for a sign from Arsenal. And to conclude this bad period, brazilian players ( Malcom, Cafu, Otavio ) were recorded having fun after home defeat versus Caen.
- There’s a good opportunity for Nantes to win today, only 2 wins since 1999 on their field against Bordeaux
Prediction: Nantes to win, odds: 1.95
- Confidence 65%
