Nantes vs Caen
2018/19 French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes might have a new coach with some new players but it’s the same old Nantes, who usually start the league campaigns slow and poor and nothing has changed in that respect. Nantes have lost both of their games and are bottom of the league.
The first loss came against Monaco at home as they went down 3-1 to the 2017 champions. The next one followed against Dijon away from home where they were defeated 2-0.
Caen did well to keep the score down in Paris when they lost just 3-0 to PSG and that defeat would not have bothered them too much. In their next game they returned home and got a decent 1-1 draw against Nice, although they would be disappointed as Nice equalised late on and Caen were probably thinking they had won the game.
Nantes vs Caen: Head to Head
Nantes have won the last 2 games when playing Caen at home and they have finished with the same correct score of 1-0.
However Caen have beaten Nantes 2 times from the last 4 fixtures here with the correct score finishing the same on both occasions 2-1.
In the past decade Caen have won at Nantes 4 times.
Nantes vs Caen: Prediction
History says this game could go either way, but it is Caen who come into this match with the better confidence and we may side with them. Nantes have looked like a shell of a team so far and need a win to get back on track.
The bookmakers believe that Nantes will win and have installed them as odds on favourites this seems strange after their lacklustre start. We will take Caen on the handicap to get the win.
