Nantes vs Lorient – Ligue 1.
Stade De La Beaujoire Louis Fonteneau, Nantes – 13 February, 19:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Paris SG would probably be your first choice when you get asked to name team in France Ligue 1 being undefeated for 11 matches. That answer would be totally wrong and many would be surprised to hear that team is actually Nantes. It is true that their had 8 draws and only 3 victories, but that is still pretty big achievement for them. They have decent chance to increase their streak this weekend against Lorient, in match where they are considered as favorites. Odds on home side are 11/10 at the moment, while odds for Lorient to win sky – rocketed in last 24 hours to 3/1 for some reason. It is probably because some of their key players M.Gakpa, M.Fofana, W.Lauoua got injured last week. First match between these two opponents in 2015 had around 3 or 4 shots on target total, ending in one of the least popular results 0 – 0.
After such a long series of being undefeated, Nantes have improved their Ligue 1 position by far. They are now on 7th position, only three points away from spot which grants UEFA Champions League qualifiers next season. One of their best performances this season happened on 3rd February against Ajaccion. Nantes were hosts and took easy 3 – 1 victory, playing beautiful football. E.Sala, A.Bedoya and Adryan were goal scorers in that match.
Lorient were on decent road as well, but in my opinion, harsh schedule messed up their team spirit and atmosphere inside the locker room. They have collected only 4 out of possible 15 points in last 5 Ligue 1 matches so It is no wonder to see them on 12th position.
