PSG – Nantes, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR PSG - NANTES
PSG rested for 1 week because they didn’t play derby with Monaco over the weekend because of bad weather. They now accept Nantes, who have been in pretty good shape for most of the season, but have been having problems lately. PSGs are not at their familiar level overall, but they seem to keep the power and in some games prefer to win with minimum efforts. At the moment, Tuchel relies more on solid defense, which is why PSG rarely allows goals at home. The Parisians’ lead over the 2nd is not that big, so we don’t expect them to underestimate their opponent.
Nantes broke the bad streak without a win after managing to beat Toulouse very hard in the last round 2-1. Nantes’ goal is to finish as close as possible to the top 5, but the truth is that the team’s potential is in the top 10. Nantes is a team that relies mostly on left-wing attacks and long-range strikes. They often play with fake offside and the first eleven is constant with not many rotations. Of course, attempts at fake offside sometimes play a bad joke on them.
Expert view : Here we will bet on PSG because of their strong home form. PSG have conceded only 2 goals for the entire season at home and against one team. Nantes have difficulties to score more than 1 goal away from home. We believe that Parisians will not have a serious difficulty scoring a goal in the first half and retaining a clean sheet during this period. Prediction – 1st half – PSG to win at 1.53.
PSG have not conceded a goal from Nantes at home in the 1st half in 6 consecutive games
PSG led at half time in 6 out of 9 home games and conceded only 1 goal then
