Nantes vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 30th January 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire (Nantes).
After three losses in a row, for a single goal each, the Canaries turn to their lucky charm, that is their home ground. The only reason that the team has carved itself a position in the lower mid-table is because of the performances they took out in front of their home crowd.
But the jig might be up against the Saints.
The last two away games really did show the grit that the Greens possess. Especially the match-up with Olympique Strasbourg. Despite being on the road, they did not even give the home team a shot at winning. Within 180 seconds from the starting whistle, Remy Cabella delivered the first strike for the visitors. He was also there at the end to finish things off with the sixth and final goal of the day, to have the scoreboard display 0-6.
Fans look forward to another one of a series of great showings by Jean-Louis Gasset’s men.
Nantes vs Saint-Etienne Head-to-head (h2h)
- The combined scoreline for the last two games is 6-0, in favor of Les Verts.
- The Greens have scored in their last four h2h ties.
- Four of the last seven fixtures at this venue had over 2.5 goals.
- Les Canaris failed to score in six of their last ten appearances against this opponent.
Nantes vs Saint-Etienne Prediction
Vahid Halilhodzic’s men are really on a good goal-scoring form at home. They have found the back of the net in seven of their last eight attempts, and in 15 of the last 19, at the venue. It’s really hard to envisage a home-tie without the team breaching the opposing defense.
But the overwhelming factor to be taken into account is the terrifying form the Greens are in, disregarding the very few stumbles they have had along the road. Their last 45 games, starting from the first month of last year, saw them staying unbeaten on 36 occasions. Also, they have scored in their last ten ties in a row, and accumulated 22 goals from their last nine.
The last two games against this opponent saw them scoring six in total. On the road, they have scored in 21 of their last 25, and in their last two alone, the players managed a total of six.
I expect a win for the visitors, where they would limit the score of the home team to one.
