Nantes Preview – Canaries to take the points on home turf?

Nantes are in tenth position in Ligue 1 after eight wins, five draws and eight defeats from 21 games. They have netted 26 and shipped 25. Antoine Kombouare’s side will be eyeing up a European place come the end of the campaign.

Nantes’ impressive unbeaten run came to an end against in-form Nice last Friday. Before the narrow 2-1 reverse at the Allianz Riviera, the Canaries had won five and drawn one of six league and cup fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1005 GMT, Saturday 22 January)

Nantes have been tough to beat on their own patch this season, with just Lyon, Nice and Marseille leaving with maximum points. They have won five, drawn two and lost one of their past eight in all competitions at the Stade de la Beaujoire.

Lorient Preview – Another difficult away day for Pelissier’s side?

Lorient, who finished 16th last term, are in danger of dropping into Ligue 2. Les Merlus are in 18th place with 17 points to their name. Only bottom side Saint Etienne have won fewer games, while just three clubs have suffered more defeats.

Christophe Pelissier’s boys are in freefall, failing to win a match in any competition since beating Nice 1-0 at home in the league back in September. Since then, Lorient have drawn five and lost nine of 14 Ligue 1 matches.

After back-to-back league draws with Paris Saint Germain and Angers, Lorient were easily beaten by Lille at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in midweek. They are in desperate need of a win, but this could be another tough day at the office for the Brittany club.
