Nantes to Win

Nantes has pulled some great performances in the last two weeks. By now, the hosts must have realized how good they can be even with relegation noose tightening on their chances of survival. Nantes is currently 18th on Ligue 1 table but occupying a relegation playoff spot doesn’t guarantee them safety. Nantes dominated the reverse fixture despite being out of form most of the season. However, victories in the last two games have been reassuring. Beating Strasbourg 2-1 on the road, then another away victory at Brest before this fixture is why we feel winning at home would complete Nantes resurgence. Bordeaux secured a win last weekend against a 10-man Rennes, which was the first after five consecutive losses.

Fewer than Three Goals Expected

While we could go with more than two goals in this fixture given that the two teams have had difficulties keeping a clean sheetg, the opposite looks more plausible. A preview of h2h stats between Nantes and Bordeaux shows deadlocked performances. Only one out of the last nine encounters between the two teams had  more than two goals. The reverse fixture ended 0-0.

Goals on One end

Our bargain chip for the third prediction is premised on the first two. We are giving Nantes a straight win and at the same time, backing it with a clean sheet victory. Moreover, given that we expect a low scoring fixture on Saturday, backing Nantes to score at most two goals looks pretty good on the books.

Game Preview: Can Nantes salvage for more Safety Points?

Nantes needs points to escape relegation/playoffs. On the other hand, Bordeaux must get at least two points in the remaining three fixtures to remain in Ligue 1 next season.

Nantes

Nantes showed glimpses of survival when they defeated Angers 3-1 back on 14th February. It was an excellent performance that many did not expect, especially on the road. The 3-1 away victory was followed by some dominant performances, especially at the back. Ever since Nantes conceded at most one goal in eight of their last eleven fixtures. They bagged four victories within that duration, which includes defeating PSG 2-1 on the road. Coming into this fixture, we feel Bordeaux will have a difficult task defeating Antoine Kombouare’s men at Stade de la Beaujoire.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux manager, Jean Louis Gasset had defeated Nantes manager thrice. The hosts’ manager also has the same number of victories against his Saturday opponent. However, it should be remembered that Bordeaux couldn’t keep much of the ball in the reverser fixture. While the visitors equally need safety points, a shaky backline and unpredictable performances would be a cause for worry before Saturday.
