Nantes vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau, Nantes
Bordeaux travel to Nantes for their Matchday 26 clash on the back of a couple of positive results in front of the home crowd, looking to finally put an end to a horrendous streak on the road and cause an upset at Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.
Les Girondins have struggled to cope with a tough schedule and saw losses at Marseille and PSG beforehand, despite very tough challenges and narrow contests where they conceded just two goals along the way – interestingly, both at the 42’ mark. They will now want more in an attempt to save their top 4 hopes and snatching points here could prove essential.
Nantes have seen a narrow loss to Monaco last week as Les Monegasques close in amid a thriller chase to escape the immediate danger zone, which was their second loss in three outings. They’ve beaten Caen 0-1 along the way with a single goal from Valentin Rongier but struggles to turn clashes their way at Stade de la Beaujoire will be more worrying.
Nantes vs Bordeaux: Head-to-head
- Nantes haven’t beaten Bordeaux since February 2016 and their Coupe de France clash.
- Bordeaux earned four wins and a draw in the sides’ last five head-to-head encounters.
- Goals from Karamoh and Kamano in the first half proved enough for a very comfortable 3-0 home win over Nantes earlier this term.
Nantes vs Bordeaux: Prediction
We do expect another very strong challenge from the visitors but we don’t see them turning this one their way as we now stick our necks out for a Draw in Nantes, which comes at 3.30 and looks a great way to go about the market at this point.
We have seen Bordeaux putting on great defensive displays on the road and with that in mind, we’re now going for another low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.53 – hoping to see a tougher deadlock to break and few goals between the sides this time around.
