France Ligue 1 – Nancy v Nantes Preview (17/9/16)

asnl-nantNancy preview

  • Boosted by their first win of the season last week against Lorient (2-0).
  • That victory followed up a disappointing start for the newly promoted club, who lost all three opening games without even scoring a goal.
  • Squad in good condition with few injuries to worry about, should name a similar starting XI.

Nantes preview

  • Struggled since the opening day victory at Dijon, now losing three in a row.
  • Have only scored one goal so far this season and generally seem quite toothless upfront.
  • Still hard to break down at the back and will play for a clean sheet here.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • Looks set to be the worst match of the day in Ligue1
  • Neither side has looked particularly impressive so far this season, with both especially struggling in front of goal.
  • Likely to be a tight tactical battle and one goal might be enough for either to win.
  • Strong 0-0 or draw contender and looks a tricky match to bet in.
  • Goal line set between 1.75 and 2, which seems perfectly fair to me.
  • Not a match to get involved in.

Prediction: 0-0

Recommended bet: None
