Nantes vs Caen Prediction 16 September 2017

Tournament: Italian Serie A
Location: La Beaujoire-Louis Fonteneau Stadium
Match date: 16.09.2017 at 19:00

On September 16 2017 at 19:00 in the forthcoming 6th game of the French Ligue 1 at the La Beaujoire-Louis Fonteneau Stadium the local Nantes will play against Caen.

Nantes managed to show an actual progress lately and yet their performance still makes us doubt whether they will be able to show any results in the Europa League. They made a lot of mistakes in their preseason friendly games and it obviously had to influence them at the beginning of the new championship. In the starting games they lost to Lille 3:0 and Marseille 0:1. Nantes gained their first points in the third game playing against Troyes 0:1 who are the beginners of the league. After that they drew Lyon 0:0 and hardly outplayed Montpellier 0:1.

Caen used to be known as the middle-peasants of the league and in the previous season they could even be relegated. Yet, they managed to stay in the Ligue 1. It was obvious that the team needed to strengthen their position to show better results in the new season and yet their transfer campaign was rather poor. Moreover, they started the league with two losses to Montpellier 1:0 and Saint-Etienne 0:1 which almost made the experts talk about the possible relegation of the team. Anyway, the victory in the third match against Lille 0:2 let them start a winning series where they outplayed Metz 1:0 and Dijon 2:1.

Nantes have a slight advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams as they won in three of the five latest matches played against Caen while their competitors won twice. Both teams are in rather good physical and psychological conditions before the upcoming match and none of them want to break their lossless series.
