Nantes – Bordeaux : Preview & Prediction
FC Nantes will want to win this Atlantic derby, already because of the rivalry with its neighbor from Bordeaux, then because the Canaries are only 4 points from the podium and they want to go for this 3rd place. The players of Christian Gourcuff, eliminated by Lyon (3-4) in the Coupe de France, remained before this failure on 2 successes in Bayonne (2-0) in this same cup then in St Etienne (2-0) during the last championship day. Winner of Toulouse (2-1) and Dijon (1-0) during its last 3 receptions, the FCN will want to pay the head of the Girondins who have been in great difficulty for a month and a half. Thus, the “Marine et Blanc” have lost 6 of their last 7 games, which angered their coach Paulo Sousa. It was the elimination in Pau (3-2 ap) on January 16 which was the last straw that broke the camel’s back! In Ligue 1, the Bordeaux remain on 4 losses in a row in Marseille (3-1), against Strasbourg (0-1), in Rennes (1-0) and against Lyon (1-2) … A 5th to come ?.
Nantes is 4th and aims for a European qualification.
Bordeaux is only 13th in Ligue 1.
The Girondins have lost 6 of their last 7 games.
The Canaries have won 2 of their last 3 outings.
Last season, FC Nantes had won 1 goal to 0 at Beaujoire.
The Girondins de Bordeaux, on 4 losses in a row in Ligue 1 and on 1 elimination in Pau in the Coupe de France, will not land at Beaujoire in the best conditions … The Canaries should take advantage of this to ensure an important victory for the Europe.
