Nantes vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th December 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes have earned just 5 points in their last five games and it is showing as the club enter this match in 14th place.
The Canaries are only five points from the bottom three so will need to start picking up points soon. Last weekend they lost 3-1 away to Marseille and Nantes have not won a game for their last 3 matches.
At home Nantes have only suffered one defeat but have not been consistent as they would have liked and have also chalked up draws. Their last home game ended in a 1-1 draw with Metz.
Strasbourg are in 19th but a win at the weekend could likely pull them out of the bottom three. Last weekend felt like a major boost for the club- they didn’t win but they did claim a 1-1 draw with Rennes who have been strong this season. The draw also ended a 3 game losing streak.
The bad news for Strasbourg is that they currently have the worst away record in the league. The club has earned just 3 points from a possible 18 and have lost two games in a row away from home coming into this one.
Nantes vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- The last time the clubs met at Nantes, Strasbourg won 1-0.

Nantes vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Strasbourg showed a lot of character last weekend that has been lacking from the club. The belief is that they will continue it in this game and the plus factor is that they usually perform well at Nantes.
Nantes are a decent team but seem direction-less as if they need fresh ideas pumped into the team, they have become quite predictable.
This doesn’t mean that Nantes can’t win this game but we think going for the double chance on a confident away side is the main bet to pursue here.
