Nantes are aiming to make improvements for their recent back-to-back defeats against Bordeaux (0-1) and Rennes (2-3). Tonight they will face Ligue 1 leaders Paris SG. They aim to move closer to the Europa League, but they are facing obstacles to overcome in Tonight’s football match against PSG.
The Canarians experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the loss against the big-spending capital club, which is probably the main reason why fans have more positive expectations for Thomas Tuchel’s troops.
Parisians destroyed ten-man Montpellier 5-0 last weekend to move one step forward to keeping their trophy. Edinson Cavani is likely to be in the starting XI against Nantes. As you may already know, he stays at PSG until the summer transfer window.
Nantes have lost three competitive matches to top-flight opposition. That was the toughest home test of the season for the Canarians. They have also lost their four competitive home games before.
Paris SG have won their previous five Ligue 1 away matches. Four of those five victories witnessed them lead ‘to-nil’ in the first half.
The Parisians have won six of their last seven away L1 games at Nantes, with 80% of the previous five victories.
Stat attack and Players to watch
Nantes: Abdoulaye Touré has scored 33.33% of Nantes’ match-winning goals at home in the league in this season.
PSG: Brazilian forward, Neymar Jr. has scored a goal in both halves in PSG’s last L1 away victory.
Nantes’ L1 home win-rate since the start of the 2018/19 season is 60% (three wins and two losses). Five of Nantes’ six L1 home victories of this season have witnessed a 1-0 scoreline.
On the other hand, the Parisians are still the only Ligue 1 team yet to yield a goal within the opening half-hour in any away L1 match during this term.
