SM Caen vs FC Nantes / Ligue 1 – This is another duel from the 23rd round of Ligue 1, which will be played between teams from the bottom of the table. Caen is in a worse situation, because they are on the penultimate position, and the relegation zone is only two points away. Nantes is a little better because they have six points more than their host. Both teams have long been without a victory, but they have passed in the Cup quarterfinals. Their first this season’s duel ended with a score of 1-1.
SM Caen vs FC Nantes begins 13.02.2019 at 19:30 CET
Caen has not won any matches in the championship in this calendar year and their last triumph happened in mid-December against Toulouse. After that, they played a draw with Reims, and then they lost four consecutive times. The previous three defeats happened without any goals scored and after all it is no surprise that they had fallen in the relegation zone. They have little consolation in the fact that they have already skipped three obstacles in this calendar year in the National Cup and reached the quarterfinals. Midfielder Oniangue has recovered and played in the last round, and now we do not expect any major changes in the composition.
Probable lineups SM Caen: Samba – Guilbert, Gradit, Djiku, Mbengue – Oniangue, Diomande, Fajr – Khaoui, Crivelli, Ninga
Nantes is in a series of bad results when the championship is in question and they are already five rounds without a triumph. They only played one draw and that was at home against St. Etienne, and three of the four defeats were with the result 1-0. In the last round, however, they had a catastrophically bad second half against Nimes. They played in their field and had a lead of 2-0, and then completely unexpectedly fell in the second part where they received four goals. In the Cup they made three victories in the short period and will play in the quarter-finals against Vitre. Coach Halilhodzic will surely change the team again after their defeat in the last round.
Probable lineups FC Nantes: Tatarusanu – F.da Silva, D.Carlos, Pallois, L.Lima – A.Toure, Krhin – Boschillia, Roniger, Eysseric – Waris
SM Caen vs FC Nantes PICK
Both teams are in bad form, with the exception of the Cup matches, where Caen and Nantes are playing much better. They are in a bad series in the championship and they mostly play matches in which it is difficult to score goals, so we do not expect an efficient match.
Pick: under 2 goals
