Caen vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 13th February 2019
Kick off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
Caen have dropped to 19th following their 4th loss in a row, this time it came against Amiens in a 1-0 loss. They will have the opportunity to escape the bottom three if they can beat Nantes at home on Wednesday.
Caen have picked up just 1 point from their last available 15 and they haven’t scored a goal for almost 300 minutes of play. As confidence goes this team lack the most in Ligue 1 right now. A win would see them go above Monaco and Dijon and move into 17th place. Caen have won just 2 games at home this season.
Nantes also have terrible form coming into this game which was highlighted at the weekend when they were beating Nimes at home only to lose the match 4-2.
They are currently 5 points clear of the bottom three but have a real chance to get sucked down into the battle as the season starts to wind down. Nantes have the 3rd worst record in the league and come into this match having lost 4 away games in a row, 3 of those ended with the correct score of 1-0.
Caen vs Nantes: Head to Head

Caen vs Nantes: Prediction
This game feels like it has a 0-0 written all over it and that could well be worth a bet. Both teams lack confidence and it is hard to see where the motivation lies at the moment for Nantes.
For Caen they will try more to win to get out of the relegation zone, but one feels that this match could be mostly played out in midfield and these teams might be able to cancel out each other fairly easily resulting in what could be a rather dull match.
We will back the draw and back the correct score for smaller stakes.
