Nantes to crow the season with a win
Nantes hope to wind up the season with a victory against Montpellier and we think they can do it decisively. The hosts managed to get a point in the reverse fixture when they travelled to Montpellier. Moreover, Nantes has won the last four games and come into this game with a 4-0 victory. On the other hand, Montpellier have lost two of their last four games, got a draw and 3-2 victory at Strasbourg.
Nantes to Score First
For Nantes to win this game, they must ensure to score first. However, Montpellier is no pushover, especially if we look at H2H between the two managers. Nantes has scored a total of 13 goals in the last four games, two of which have been clean-sheet victories. On the flip side, the visitors have been poor in front of goal, which us why we can’t bet on them to score first in this fixture.
Few than Three Goals Expected
Essentially, this should be a high scoring game. However, a preview of the last four encounters gives a clue of how things are likely to turn out in the last game of the season. The two teams have seen fewer than three goals in the last four meetings. And while Montpellier looks comfortable in position eight, the visitors will not just give away four points to Nantes this season. A spirited fight from both sides should end up with only a few goals at the back of the net.
Game Preview: Nantes to Make the Final Push for Safety
Nantes can make it five out of five victories on Sunday when they host Montpellier at Stade de la Beaujoire. But will they find it easy?
Nantes has won four previous games before this fixture. The hosts are occupying the relegation playoff spot but a win on Sunday could seem them off the hook. After some sterling performances, scoring 13 goals in the last four games, Antoine Kombouare hopes for a strong finish with only one game left to play. And even with a poor record against Montpellier manager, Nantes resurgence in recent games is proof of the manager’s effort in trying to turn things around.
Montpellier looks comfortable in the eighth position coming into this game. For Michel Der Zakaria, this fixture is more of preventing a defeat than getting a win. The visitors have only defeated Nantes five times in the previous 18 meetings, two of which have been on the road. Moreover, manager Michel Der Zakaria boasts of three victories against his Sunday host. With that, we expect a spirited fight from the visitors in this game.
