Nantes vs Saint-Etienne
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 10th November 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes are in 4th place coming into this game but their form has them in 11th. A few weeks ago Nantes were very close to PSG and then lost 3 games in a row and that has damaged their league campaign. The good news is that despite poor form they are just 1 point from 2nd placed Angers.
As just mentioned Nantes form has really dipped after defeats against Metz, Monaco and Bordeaux and beforehand the club would have been looking to have at least got six points from those games. Nantes have not won and not scored a goal since October 5th and it’s fair to say that October was a terrible month for them.
Saint Etienne are in 8th place after a run of brilliant games where they have remained unbeaten in their last five picking up 13 points from those games. They would go in front of Nantes with a win here and possibly break into the top five.
The Verts beat an in form Monaco side 1-0 last weekend and away from home they have the 4th best record however they have still lost 50% of their away games but have won 2 in a row coming into this game.
Nantes vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
Nantes haven’t won at home against Saint Etienne since 2016 going back 4 meetings.
There is a 70% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Nantes vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
We think this game could be settled by one goal or just a special moment from either club. It is tempting to go with the away side who have the better form but surely Nantes will be able to turn around their form? They have a good team and it will start to pick up the points again and there is no better place to do that than at home. It is a little risky but we will pick the home side and also back both teams to score. We just can’t see Saint Etienne winning 3 games in a row away from home.
Nantes vs Saint-Etienne: Bet Tips:
