Nancy vs Paris FC
France – Ligue 2.
Date: Friday, 11th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Marcel Picot (Nancy).
The Thistles are staring at a possible relegation at the end of this season. They will face a team in great form in Paris this Friday.
The hosts have lost 11 of their 18 games this season. They are the worst scoring team with 10 goals meanwhile conceding 24 in return. But at present they are on a 7 match unbeaten run in all competitions, with 5 wins included. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of those matches.
At home they have a win and 2 defeats sin the last 5 games and 4 of those games had under 2.5 goals at the final whistle. If they plan to be in Ligue 2 they have to start by improving this home record.
Even though they do not have stars like their Ligue 1 counterparts, Paris FC has done a good job so far. They are 4th at present with 32 points and a win is necessary to reduce the distance with Brest.
The team from Paris are also n a 5 match unbeaten streak which includes 3 wins. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of their last 6 competitive matches. But when we look at their away record things need a change big time. Manager Mehmed Baždarević will want to win more matches away from home like last time when they beat Grenoble 0-1.
The visitors have won and lost 2 games each in their recent 5 away fixtures which is below average considering their position in the table. In 7 of their last 8 matches on the road the final score had less than 2.5 goals in total.
I believe, we will see a close game at Nancy, if both teams play defensively. If so a draw is on the cards which will not help either side.

The home side have lost 2 of their home matches in recent past. They have only 1 win in their last 8 competitive matches. So there is chance for that record to worsen. Thus we can bet on a Double chance for a draw or the visitors to win with 1.50 odds.
