Nantes vs Troyes Betting Prediction
In this match we have our betting tip for France Ligue 1.
Nantes will be looking to overtake fifth-placed Rennes in the Ligue 1 (L1) standings in this round 29 encounter. Meanwhile, Troyes are in a struggle at the wrong end of the table, but a win here could propel them out of the relegation zone.
In the last 12 league meetings at the Stade de la Beaujoire, Nantes have won nine, with three ending level. Indeed, Nantes has proved to be an unhappy hunting ground for Troyes as they have never won a single clash there in L1.
After a bad run of five straight games without a single league win (D3, L2), Nantes have slipped to seventh place in the league table. After a shock 1-0 home loss against Angers, Claudio Ranieri’s men were stunned by a last-gasp 1-1 draw away to Marseille last Sunday.
Currently in the bottom three (18th), Troyes are winless in their last three matches in the league (D1, L2). Jean-Louis Garcia and his team come into this game after a 2-0 loss at home against league-leaders PSG.
Troyes simply must score first – they are the only team in L1 who lost all their matches in which they conceded the opening goal. Moreover, they are on a dreadful run of nine straight away L1 losses – the worst in the league.
Betting Tips Players : Nantes striker Emiliano Sala has been directly involved in half of his team’s 28 goals. Indeed, he has a league record of eleven goals and three assists so far this season.
Troyes’ top scorer is Adama Niane who has six goals and two assists in L1. Furthermore, he has scored his team’s last three goals.
Betting Tips Strategy: Nantes have won only one of their last six home games in all competitions (W1, D1, L4).
However, with only ten goals conceded in 13 home L1 games, they are the second-best home defence in the league.
