Caen – Nantes PREDICTION & TIPS
Winner of just one of his last nine Ligue 1 games, the MSC is starting to feel the breath of the contenders for keeping behind him. Thirteenth with only three lengths ahead of the barrage, the Normans can no longer afford to leave the lawn of Ornano Stadium with nothing in their pockets. That’s why we expect a tense match against the Canaries, fifth. A Nantes formation that forges its success on its defensive solidity, with master Ranieri at the helm. Very convincing at Guingamp (0-3) last week, Nantes has taken three points ahead of Nice in the race for Europe. Beaten short (1-0) on the side of the Beaujoire in the first leg, will the SMC be strong enough to avoid defeat in front of his audience?
The MSC have scored just four goals in their last eight games at Ornano in the league.
Nantes has lost four times away from La Beaujoire this season in L1, after twelve meetings …
The Canaries had perfectly contained the Stade Malherbe in the first leg: 1-0.
Nantes has not lost any of his last four trips in L1 (2v-2n).
Caen has already proposed good matches on his field but has a priori not the weapons to counter the tactical device of the Nantes found since the arrival of Ranieri. The Normans have scored just four goals in their last eight outings at Ornano and it is hard to see how these impressive Canaries Masters in Guingamp (0-3) last week could leave the field with a negative result. Betting on the N2 is more than consistent!
