Strasbourg Prediction – Can Strasbourg gain first win of season?

Third from bottom Strasbourg haven’t enjoyed the best of starts in this season’s Ligue 1 campaign so far this season as Friday night’s hosts have managed to gain just 3 points from their first 5 matches of the new French top flight campaign.

The hosts have produced 3 draws and 2 defeats out of these 5 league matches with stalemates against Metz 1-1, a 0-0 draw with Reims and a 2-2 draw with Monaco, while defeats to Rennes 2-0 at home and a 1-0 loss away from home at PSG have left Strasbourg in the early relegation play-off spot.

Strasbourg have actually managed to win just 1 out of their last 13 matches overall in Ligue 1 which ironically, was away at Friday night’s opponents, Nantes, back in May towards the end of last season.

In addition, despite holding home advantage in Friday night’s clash with Nantes, Strasbourg have won just 1 of their last 11 matches on home turf at their Stade de la Meinau which came in the form of a 4-0 win over Reims, so they’re by no means guaranteed of a result in this encounter.

Nantes Prediction – Can Nantes grab fourth win on trot?

After being on the end of a 2-1 defeat away from home at Lille on the opening day of the new French Ligue 1 season, Nantes have bounced back in positive fashion by capturing 10 points from the subsequent 12 on offer in their last 4 matches.

Nantes held Marseille to a 0-0 draw on home turf at their Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau before embarking upon a 3-match winning streak which includes victories over Amiens 2-1 away and back-to-back home wins against Montpellier and Reims, both by 1-0 margins.

Goals have been hard to come by but Nantes have kept 3 clean sheets from their first 5 matches of the new season and their solid defensive unit could set them up for getting something from their trip to Strasbourg on Friday evening.

Results away from home in Ligue 1 have certainly taken a turn for the better where Nantes are concerned as the visitors have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches on their travels which was the aforementioned 2-1 loss at 5th placed Lille at the start of this new campaign.


Key-Facts – Strasbourg v Nantes

  • Strasbourg have won just 1 of their last 11 matches at home in Ligue 1
  • Nantes have won their last 3 matches on the trot in Ligue 1
  • Nantes have won the last 2 encounters away at Strasbourg, 3-2 and 2-1


Betting Tips Verdict

Strasbourg have struggled at the start of this season while Nantes seem a more compact and consistent outfit, so back the visitors with the handicap here.
