Goals Expected on Both Ends

Strasbourg and Nantes sit in the bottom half of the Ligue 1 table. Both teams have been struggling defensively, which is manifest in their inconsistent results. In this game, we expect both teams to find the net. The hosts have conceded goals in all their last five games. Nantes has conceded at least a goal in all their last ten Ligue 1 fixtures. A struggling backline on both sides is why we see both teams scoring.

More than Two Goals

This should be a high scoring fixture. A preview of the last six games for the visitors shows that four games ended with three goals and a scoreline of 2-1. Strasbourg has had more than two goals in three of their last six games. The reverse fixture back in December 2020 ended 4-0 in favour of Strasbourg.

More Goals in Second Half of the Game

In the reverse fixture that Strasbourg won 4-0 on the road, there were two goals in both halves. But with Nantes fighting for survival, backing them to present a strong opposition this time is plausible. However, we expect a more open game in the second half, during which both teams will hunt for more goals and a win. It is why more goals in the second half is another value bet.

Match Preview: Nantes can still survive the Drop

The big question in this fixture is can Nantes collect points on the road and survive relegation? Well, losing 4-0 in the reverse fixture may say otherwise but we expect a tense game on Sunday.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg has not recorded back to back victories since 17th January 2021. And while the hosts hope to build on their last weekend 1-1 draw at Nimes, Nantes will not be an easy opponent. The hosts come into this fixture without defender Frederic Guilbert who picked a red last weekend. Moreover, the hosts have lost thrice in their last five games, recorded one victory and a draw within that duration. Strasbourg manager, Thierry Laurey hasn’t had a good game against his Sunday opponent, Antoine Komboaure after losing thrice, drawing once and recording only one victory against the Nantes manager.

Nantes

Nantes has a stellar record against Strasbourg, both at management level and H2H. The visitors have recorded 11 victories and one draw against Strasbourg in the last 19 encounters. A fight for survival could be the spark that ignites Nantes’ chances of bagging a win on Sunday when they travel to Strasbourg. But can the hosts shed off the last three consecutive losses and improve their defence on Sunday? Moreover, Nantes will be looking for the first win against Strasbourg since back to back victories in the 2017/18 Ligue 1 season.
