Yes – (1/1)
No – (3/4)
So first off, don’t actually watch this game. Just place your bet and then put PSG on or something. Nantes is in 7th with a chance to tie for 3rd, but it’s a but it’s a huge log-jam with every team from 3 to 13 being within 6 points of each other, so 7th is just where they fall for now.
The positive for the squad is that they are allowing less than a goal a game, so their defense knows how to lock a team out. The negative is that they only averaging half a goal a game, with nobody stepping up to be a threat on attack. Only Emiliano Salas was a notable scorer for Nantes last season, and right now has 1 of their 3 goals on the year.
They haven’t lost a game in 4 weeks, so Nantes holds the momentum coming in.
On the other side, Strasbourg has been porous to put it lightly. They’ve scored 4 and allowed a whopping 11 in 6 weeks. 3 of their 4 goals came in their lone win they notched five weeks ago. Similar to Nantes, they aren’t fielding anyone of great talent on offense, but where they differ is they don’t field a great talent on defense either.
Strasbourg 0 – 1 Nantes
Things will get no better for either club and Nantes will overachieve their way into the top 4. Their big advantage is that they send out a forward in Salas who has scored his fair share in the past against a team that can’t keep attackers out.
We take Nantes (19/10), Under 2.5 (8/15), and only one team scoring (3/4).Bet Now!
