Caen vs Nantes Prediction & Tips
Having won just two of their last 15 league matches on home soil (G2, E6, P7), an unfortunate SM Caenteam comes to this match after suffering a 1-0 home defeat to Amiens on the day previous. That was his fourth consecutive loss in the top flight.
However, there is a significant possibility thatSM Caen has a “free” chance to score since four of his 11 goals in local status this season have come through penalty kicks – the highest amount of L1. Specifically, doing that against Nantes may not mean much since Caen have lost three of their last four league games at home to Nantes; in the last three he received the first goal of the match.
Meanwhile,Nantes only recorded a victory in their last nine away games (G1, E2, P6) and lost the last four without even scoring a goal. However, that is not surprising since, when playing away from home, only 25.4% of his shots go to the door – that is the worst percentage of accuracy in L1 as a visitor.
Les Canaries finished the day of the previous weekend with the fourth worst offensive record in visitor status in the league, since he scores only 0.73 goals per game when playing away from home. But if he loses this game against Caen, it would be the first time since the 2008/09 season that Nantes has recorded five consecutive away defeats in L1.
Players to watch: Enzo Crivelli is Caen’s top scorer with four goals in the L1, although only one of those goals has come in local condition. While Waris Majeed (Nantes) also has four goals in the league and half of them have come in their last two L1 matches.
Statistics to consider: Incredibly, four of Caen’s last five goals in home condition have come after the 89th minute.
Nantes have not been able to score in six of their 11 defeats as a visitor in this season’s L1 campaign (54.5%).
The visiting team has scored exactly two goals in each of their last four visits to Caen on L1 (G3, P1).
