France Ligue 1 – Nantes v Bastia Preview (1/10/16)

nant-scbNantes preview

  • Winless since the opening day of the season and really not playing well right now.
  • New coach Rene Girard hasn’t made any impact at all, if anything they have gotten worse.
  • Some injury concerns in defence with Diego Carlos & Anthony Walongwa both unlikely to feature.
  • Nantes have only scored 3 goals in 7 matches which simply isn’t a good enough return at this level.

Bastia preview

  • The Corsicans continue to grind out results in an ugly way. Most of their success is at home though.
  • Bastia aren’t particularly known for their strength on the road and will probably just try to aim for a 0-0 draw here.
  • Bastia are missing first choice keeper JL Leca to suspension, along with striker Enzo Crivelli.
  • The defensive duo of Sebastien Squillaci & Alexander Djiku are both ruled out injured.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • Both meetings between the two sides ended 0-0 last season, and the way both are playing right now the same outcome is certainly possible again.
  • Nantes don’t have much confidence but this could be a good chance to face a Bastia side missing players.
  • I’m not convinced the hosts will be able to win though and I have no interest in backing them at around the 1.80 mark.
  • The goal line is between 2.0 and 1.75 and this looks like it could end under. I’m not expecting a classic and it’s not the sort of encounter I want to be betting in.

Prediction: 0-0

Recommended bet: None
