Betfred football tips

Draw

This is a game between two outfits that have been on a terrible patch of form. Nantes have been unable to get any kind of form going on at home. The team has been unable to win the last 11 games at home. Surprisingly, Lorient are winless in their last 10 away matches in the French Ligue 1. As a match between teams which are yet to create any impact, a draw will be a great pick.

Both teams to score – yes

Nantes’ head-to-head record against Lorient is exceptional with five consecutive wins, but the recent form of both clubs is very questionable. The inability to win games has largely stemmed from the respective home or away form.

Total goals under 2.5

The defensive record of Nantes has taken a major beating with more clean sheets in the last 12 games across all competitions. Lorient are not too far behind on this front, as their last clean sheet came eight matches ago.

Nantes vs Lorient: Team News and Match Preview

Nantes

After struggling for any kind of a form owing to a 16-game winless, Nantes brought in Antoine Kombouaré as the new boss. The 57-year-old has already taken the team to wins in two of the last five games. Despite things looking up for Nantes, there is still a lot of wins required by the team to pull clear of the drop zone. St Etienne, in the 16th place, have been able to create a small buffer, which threatens Nantes’ survival bid. Fabio da Silva, Sébastien Corchia, and Dennis Appiah are unavailable for Kombouaré.

Lorient

Lorient’s return of one win in the last five matches is threatening to keep the club in the relegation battle going into the business end. The presence of some teams like Saint-Étienne will make Lorient keen on three points on a regular basis. Christophe Pélissier will be focusing on keeping things tight at the back, where the team has struggled with the second worst defensive record. Christophe Pélissier has a huge injury list with players like Jeremy Morel, Jonathan Delaplace, Matthieu Saunier, Thomas Fontaine, and Tiago Ilori injured, while Paul Nardi is suspended.
