Nantes – Strasbourg : Preview & Prediction
FC Nantes, currently 5th in Ligue 1, will play its second League Cup match after their overwhelming victory over Paris FC (2-0) in the first round on October 30. The Canaries are ambitious this season under the leadership of Christian Gourcuff. The Nantais, victorious in Nîmes (1-0) this weekend, remain on 2 successes at Beaujoire against Toulouse (2-1) and against Dijon (1-0). With 7 successes over its 10 receptions, the FCN is hard to move within its walls. RC Strasbourg are doing better outside since the Alsatians have won their only 2 trips to Amiens (4-0) and Bordeaux (1-0) in the last three weeks. The record outside remains still very poor with 7 defeats in the last 9 trips of the Alscians. The winner of the 2019 edition will not have the easy part in Nantes and could bow out of competition.
