Strasbourg vs Nantes
France Ligue 1
Date: Friday 20th September 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Thierry Laurey the head coach of Strasbourg has a lot to think about as the club prepare for their 6th game of the season. They have yet to win a game and are in 18th place with 3 points.
Last weekend they lost to PSG and the only saving grace in that game was the result was just 1-0. It was a goal scored by Neymar in the final minute of the game which would have been a massive blow for Strasbourg who were seconds away from walking out of Paris with a point.
At least they have the chance to play at home but the opponent in Nantes will be a tricky one. Strasbourg have time on their side, a couple of wins could see them prop near the top 10, but there has to be a lot of discussion about their current formation, because it clearly isn’t working.
Nantes beat Reims last weekend 1-0 to move up to 3rd place in one of the clubs best starts to a league season in recent memory. They come into this game having won their last 3 matches in a row. It’s been an incredible moment for the Canaries who have now gone 4 games unbeaten after losing their first game of the season.
The one worry is that they are not scoring many goals but at the same time they have conceded just 3 goals.
Strasbourg vs Nantes: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 3-2 to Nantes.

Strasbourg vs Nantes: Prediction
How do Strasbourg bounce back from that cruel PSG defeat?
If Nantes can control the pace and midfield of the game we feel that they can inflict another defeat on the home side. They have a decent record over them and are in much better form, Strasbourg could still surprise Nantes of course, but if we are going to back the away side then this is the best time to back them.
Nantes have been very tight in defence, and that could frustrate Strasbourg who have scored just 3 goals so far this season. We will back Nantes and for smaller stakes back the correct score.
