Nantes vs Strasbourg
France – League Cup
Date: Wednesday 18th December 2019
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.
Another all Ligue 1 clash in the round of 16 league cup will see Nantes take on Strasbourg on Wednesday evening.
Nantes had an easy game in the last round as they beat Paris 8-0. Not that Paris as in PSG but Paris FC. Form has once again improved for Nantes in the league and they have climbed back up to 5th place and have won 3 of their last 4 games. From 9 home matches they have only lost 2 and they look like they will start as the favourites to win this game.
Strasbourg are in 13th place in the league but they do come into this game having won their last two matches. Of course Strasbourg are defending their title and won this cup last time out when they beat Guingamp in what many called was a surprising final. The match finished 0-0 but Strasbourg won on penalties.
Strasbourg have lost 6 games from 9 in the league and perhaps that doesn’t bode well for this game. They have only scored 5 goals on the road all season.
Nantes vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
The last time the teams played here which was in May, Strasbourg won 1-0.
Strasbourg have won the last 2 meetings.
There is a 60% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Nantes vs Strasbourg: Prediction
This is a tough game for Strasbourg who will want to play for pride and get a win here being the holders. They have shown some good form in the league but they are up against Nantes also in better form and a very tricky ground to go to.
We don’t expect a memorable game here but we think that the home side can edge this one. We will also take the risk and back under 1.5 goals- this game has the potential to be low scoring and could even go to penalties but we think Nantes will have enough in the tank at home to get the job done here.
