Nantes set to move to the top of Ligue One

Nantes will look to continue their good start to their Ligue One campaign on Friday night, as they visit struggling Strasbourg.

Strasbourg find themselves in the relegation play-off spot after a poor start to their Ligue One campaign. The home side has yet to win in the French top-flight this season, picking up just three points from their five league games so far.

Strasbourg’s struggles did not start this season though, as the home side has picked up just one win in their last 13 Ligue One outings. Ironically, the one win came away from home at Friday night’s opponents in May.

The home sides recent Ligue One matches have been incredibly tight and low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven matches in the French top-flight.

Strasbourg have found home wins hard to find in Ligue One of late, as they have failed to win in their last seven matches on home soil. One factor in those poor home results is that Strasbourg have kept just one clean sheet in 11 matches on home soil.

After failing to win in their first two Ligue One matches of the season, Nantes have now recorded three straight league wins. Last time out, the visitors recorded a 1-0 home win over Reims.

The game followed a familiar low-scoring trend for Nantes in Ligue One, as six of their last eight matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Nantes have a poor recent away record in Ligue One, having won just three times in their last 15 league games on their travels. However, they have been hard to beat of late away from home, losing just one of their last five matches on their travels.

Forebet predicts that Nantes will record a victory in a high-scoring clash to move above reigning champions PSG at the top of the table.
