Nantes vs Nancy Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Nantes and Nancy will square off at the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to return to winning ways in Ligue 1. Nantes were only able to secure a 1-1 away draw against Rennes last time out despite they had the lead through Jules Iloki. Meanwhile, Nancy were beaten 0-2 at home by Bordeaux, despite they had a better ball possession and more goalscoring opportunities. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Nantes Preview

Nantes picked up three victories in their first four games after the winter break, but they failed to win a single match since then. They enter the fray on the back of a three-game winless streak in all competitions, including a 1-1 away draw at Rennes last weekend. Furthermore, Nantes were knocked out from the Coupe de France in midweek following a 1-0 defeat on the road at Lille. They can now focus only on their Ligue 1 campaign, as they find themselves only in 12th position in the league table tied on 26 points with Lille and Toulouse. Nantes’ main issue throughout this Ligue 1 campaign has been their inefficient attack, as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 15 goals scored in 22 rounds. Emiliano Sala has been Nantes’ most influential player on the pitch throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals in his 19 league appearances. Their home form over the past four months has been a complete mixed bag with four defeats, four wins and two draws in their last ten home fixtures across all competitions. In addition, Nantes are winless in their last two home meetings with Nancy in all competitions and failed to score a single goal in the process.

Nancy Preview

On the flip side, Nancy were on a seven-game unbeaten streak between the middle of December 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but their recent form has been terrible. They were knocked out from the Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France within the space of a week following back-to-back defeats at the hands of Monaco and CA Bastia respectively. Sandwiched in-between these results, Nancy suffered another 0-2 home defeat against Bordeaux in the previous round of the Ligue 1. The most worrying fact is that Nancy have failed to score a single goal in their last three games across all competitions. However, Nancy still sit in a comfortable 14th position in the standings, but they are just two points clear off the relegation zone. Similar to their Sunday’s opponents Nancy have also struggled in the final third, having scored just 16 goals in 21 league fixtures. Youssef Ait Bennasser and Issiar Dia have been Nancy’s most prolific players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 6 goals and 2 assists between them. On the road, Nancy are winless in the last eight games in Ligue 1, but their most recent two league trips ended in draws. In addition, Nancy picked up back-to-back wins in their last two visits to the Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have struggled across all competitions over the past few weeks, and both had problems in finding the back of the net in this term. Actually, these two sides hold one of the worst offensive records in the division, having scored just 31 goals between them. I’m expecting a low-scoring affair which could end as a draw.
