Nantes to win to nil @ 16/5 with Bet Victor

Caen host Nantes in Ligue 1 this weekend and it seems like a straightforward bet. Nantes are great at keeping clean sheets. Caen don’t score many goals. Let us elaborate a bit.

GRAB THIS FROM 888SPORT!

Nantes have conceded just 21 goals in 23 games, an extraordinary record. Unfortunately for them, Ligue 1 has established something of a big four and they’ve left Nantes in their dust. While one point separates second and fourth, ten points separate fourth and fifth-placed Nantes.

There’s still a while to go yet and Nantes picked up their biggest win of the season last weekend. Claudio Ranieri’s side are usually quite reserved in front of goal but were trigger-happy when they travelled to Guingamp, winning 3-0. It’s an encouraging sign that the best is yet to come from a side full of emerging talent, including Santy Ngom. The forward was playing fifth-tier football last season before being spotted by Nantes scouts.

WHEN THE FUN STOPS, STOP!

As we mentioned earlier, Caen don’t score many goals. In fact, they are the worst scorers in the entire division with just 15 goals to their name. Despite this struggle to find the back of the net, they remain three points above the relegation zone. Nantes pose a big problem for them. They lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
