Nantes mostly defended last week away at Montpellier, but still managed to win all points (finished 1-0).
Besides being highly organized, Nantes also have an excellent keeper. So far Nantes have conceded only 4 goals, and if things continue like this, I see them having one of the best defense in Ligue 1.
Attacking wise Nantes don’t really pose much threats, as most of their attempts miss the target. Usually they try to speculate on counters, but don’t have the skills to push the game forward, so they precipitate and try their luck from distance.
Caen were a bit lucky to win all points last round against Dijon. Opponents took control of the game after Caen opened the score very early. Furthermore Caen got a red card with 10 minutes before the final whistle, but still found enough power to score the winner (finished 2-1).
Caen are a bit like Nantes, in the sense that the major strength is the defensive phase. They do have a bit more power in the offensive phase, but attacking players aren’t very creative.
Hosts will be without defender Degio Carlos and winger Rongier, while Caen will miss defender Djiku.
This should be the most boring game of the round, a game played mostly in midfield. The logical bet would be under 2.00 goals at 2.02, but we all know how easily these bets can be lost, so you should only take it in case you really want to place a bet on this game.
