Troyes vs Nantes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Troyes will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak in Ligue 1 to three games when they welcome Nantes at the Stade de l’Aube on Saturday evening. Troyes produced the shock result of the previous weekend as they won 1-2 on the road at Nice thanks to goals from Adama Niane and Saif-Eddine Khaoui. On the other hand, Nantes lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Marseille, with Claudio Ranieri’s men conceding the goal with just three minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Nantes are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Troyes, but the hosts’ recent form has been decent. Furthermore, Troyes’ home form over the past ten months has seen them lose just two of their last 20 home fixtures across all competitions. I’m backing Troyes to continue their good run of form and to secure another positive result, although I’m not expecting a high-scoring game.

Troyes to win at 6/4

Under 2.5 goals at 8/13

Troyes saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Nantes saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Nantes have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played against Troyes

Troyes Preview

Troyes managed to beat Lorient 2-1 in the Ligue 1 promotion/relegation play-offs to book their place in the French top tier. The newcomers began their Ligue 1 adventure in style as they managed a 1-1 home draw against Rennes along with an impressive 1-2 victory on the road at Nice last weekend. This leaves Troyes in 8th spot in the standings tied on four points with other two teams. The newcomers have looked decent going forward over the past month as they managed to score at least two goals in four of their last six games across all competitions. Troyes’ form over the past four months has been near impeccable as they have only lost once in their last 15 games across all competitions. Adama Niane got on the scoresheet last weekend, and he will be looking to continue his goalscoring form on Saturday, particularly as he will face his former club who never gave him a chance in the first team. Troyes can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they have only lost two of their last 20 home fixtures across all competitions while winning 14. In addition, Troyes have won two of their last four home meetings with Nantes across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Troyes Team News

Mory Kone is the only doubtful player for Troyes ahead of this clash.

Nantes Preview

Things are going from bad to worse for Nantes, after their 3-0 thrashing to Lille in the opening round of the season, they suffered another defeat against Marseille last weekend. Actually, Ranieri’s men were lucky to lose by only one-goal as goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, who joined the club this summer, was Nantes’ best player against Marseille as he made several crucial saves. Nantes have endured a disappointing run of form over the past three months, winning just once in their last eight games across all competitions. Furthermore, Nantes have failed to score a single goal in their most recent five fixtures. Claudio Ranieri was very confident ahead of the start of the season, but his selections at the moment have an air of desperations. That’s because Nantes have sold some important players this summer and have only brought in two defenders and a goalkeeper. Their last season’s top scorer Emiliano Sala have played in both Nantes’s league fixtures so far this season, but he hfailed to find the back of the net despite Nantes having had several goalscoring chances in this term. Away from home, Nantes are currently on a six-game winless streak across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in five of these.

Nantes Team News

Yacine Bammou, Valentin Rongier, Diego Carlos Santos Silva and Alex Kacaniklic are all doubts, while Joris Kayembe Ditu and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson are both missing through injury. Nicolas Pallois and Enock Kwateng are both missing through suspension.
