Nantes vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 19th May 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes poor form finally ended last week when they won the local derby 2-0 against Angers to move the club into 10th place. But any hope of European football next season is still over for the club who can now only finish in 9th place.
Nantes have won just 10 points from their last available 30 and from being in a strong top 5 position they have squandered any European chances. The rumours are that manager Claudio Ranieri who arrived with so much interest could be sacked in the summer.
Strasbourg surprised everybody when they beat Lyon in a five goal thriller last weekend eventually winning 3-2. The win confirmed the clubs status in Ligue 1 and they are now safe whatever happens in this game.
Strasbourg have the 2nd to worst away record in the league where they have won just 2 games from 18 played. They are averaging 2 goals conceded in each of those games.

Nantes vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Nantes have a great history over Strasbourg, they finally won a game last weekend and this match at home in front of their home fans wraps up their season. So we will opt to see the home side win a close game. For Strasbourg they celebrated a little over the week and may not be prepared to play competitive football over 90 minutes.
