FC Nantes vs Olympique Marseille / Ligue 1 – One of the most interesting matches in the 16th round of French Ligue 1, brings us the 12th Nantes and fifth Marseille, which currently has nine points more. However, Nantes has considerably improved their form since the arrival of the new coach, so after last season’s defeat at homeand a guest draw,they now finally expect a win over the guests from the south of France.
FC Nantes vs Olympique Marseille begins 05.12.2018 at 19:00 CET
However, for something like that, Nantes needs to play much better than they did in the last round of Ligue 1 when they lost to St. Etienne as guests with as much as 3-0. But before that, Nantes had a great series of four wins and two draws, for which they have to mostly thank their new coachHalilhodzic, who took them over at the beginning of October, and in a very short time brought this team from the relegation zone led to middle of the table.
Otherwise, Nantes has in that period qualified in the round of sixteenof League Cup, where they will have a big clash with Rennes, but they must before that give their best in the championship, especially since they have last weekend played their worst match under the baton of Halilhodzic. That is why we are now looking forward to a few changes in the starting lineup, with the proviso that they cannot count on the injured goalkeeper Tatarusanu, midfielders Rongier, Kayembe, Girotto and Krhin and striker Waris.
Probable lineups FC Nantes: Dupe – Fabio, Diego Carlos, Pallois, Lima – Evangelista, Toure, Moutoussamy – Boschilia, Sala, Limbombe
When it comes to the guests from Marseille, they have blundered last weekend in their domestic championship, when they played 0-0 against Reims at home, so they now have three points lessthan Montpellier. However, it is most important for them to continue being close to those positions in the Champions League, but their job should be much easier in the rest of the season, given that it is already clear that they will not pass the knockout stage in Europa League.
Namely, they have managed to win only one point in five rounds played in that competition and the last of those four defeats happened last week when they with 4-0 byEintracht in Frankfurt. However, for coach Garcia it is more important that some of the players who were absent from injuries have returned in the meantime, so only the injured striker Radonjic will not be able to perform in this duel.
Probable lineups Olympique Marseille: Mandanda – Sakai, Rami, Kamara, Amavi – Strootman, Luiz Gustavo – Thauvin, Payet, Ocampos – Germain
FC Nantes vs Olympique Marseille PICK
Even though the guests from Marseille are much better placed on the table, the team of Nantes has significantly improved their form with the arrival of new coach, so we have therefore believe this match will abound with goals on both sides.
