NANTES VS MARSEILLE PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Constantly struggling in recent rounds when Nantes’ opponents are quite superior. The 1-3 defeat against PSG was foretold for coach Antoine Kombouaré’s team. However, a commendable and encouraging signal for the team is that they have just held a draw with the defending champion in the latest trip. Thereby helping Nantes still create a safe distance from the relegation group. Besides, with the current score, the Canaries can fully hope for this year’s top 4 race. Specifically, Nantes has 19 points after 14 rounds and ranks 11th in the rankings. The scoring performance is also extremely commendable with 1.75 goals/match. This is the premise for the team to believe in the match with points.
In the remaining route, much was expected to be able to go far in the European arena, but Marseille quickly faced a disadvantage in the tense race in its domestic tournament. Specifically, the army of coach Villas Boas had to go through an extremely heavy schedule. Before losing to Galatasaray, Marseille had to host PSG, Nice and even defending champion Lille. The condition of the players is not guaranteed along with the team’s strength due to injury is the cause of that series of defeats. This also leads to a somewhat reduced scoring performance when only 1 goal was reached in the last 5 rounds. And without a spiritual dose, the possibility of Marseille falling into a crisis is very high.
Nantes’ recent matches often do not appear to have too many goals, specifically 4/5 previous appearances, the fixed score only touched the threshold of 2 goals. While Marseille is not much better, the last 5 matches in Ligue 1 have all been Under and 3 of them have 0 – 0.
Select: Under 2.5 FT.
Although not overestimated in terms of strength and player quality, Nantes’ performance at this time is enough to satisfy any fan of the team. Under coach Antoine Kombouaré, the canary’s way of playing was somewhat annoying. Even opponents like Monaco, Strasbourg and even the defending champion could not bring back all 3 points against the team. Besides, at La Beaujoire-Louis Fonteneau stadium, Nantes is having an impressive record with 2 wins, 2 draws and has not lost any matches in the last 4 receptions.
On the side of Marseille, the series of dark days made the players’ psychology somewhat go down. Along with that, 3 consecutive injuries that have not been able to return also cause many disadvantages for the staff system of coach Villas Boas. The possibility of losing points with this trip is quite high.
Select: Nantes FT.
The European rate assesses Marseille’s ability to win somewhat better than the opponent. However, it should be remembered that “Les Phoceens” is going through a not very bright period in both its achievements and playing style. Besides, in the past, Marseille was not too dominant when facing Nantes, even coach André Villas-Boas’s students were more inferior. Specifically, Nantes won 2 draws 2 and lost only 1 match against Marseille. The home advantage and the downfall of the opponent give Nantes all 3 points for this match.
Select: Nantes FT.
