Nantes and Caen will be facing each other at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau on Saturday evening, with both sides still looking for their first victory of the season. Nantes suffered an unexpected 2-0 defeat on the road at Dijon at the weekend, in a game in which Abdoulaye Toure was sent off in the last 15 minutes. Caen, on the flip side, threw away a one-goal lead last time out against Nice, with their goal being scored by Yacine Bammou from the spot just after the break.

Betting Tips for the game
Nantes looked terrible in this early part of the season, having lost back-to-back games at the hands of Monaco and Dijon. The bad news is that Nantes are now back in front of their own fans where they managed just one win in their last eleven competitive games. The positive thing is that Nantes have won their last two home meetings with Caen in Ligue 1.
Caen have also endured a disappointing run of form in Ligue 1 over the past few months, losing five and drawing three of their last eight fixtures. Furthermore, Caen are winless in their last ten away games in Ligue 1. In addition, Caen managed to pick up just two victories in their last five visits to the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.
It’s tough to choose the winner here, but Nantes have a bit better squad than Caen in my opinion and we think that they will score the first points of this campaign. Our betting tips and predictions would back Nantes to win at odds 1.90.

Nantes’ recent record reads five defeats, one draw and one win in their last seven games across all competitions. However, Caen’s form have been worse than that as they won just once in 15 fixtures. We think that Nantes have the slight edge in this one, so our preview fancies Nantes to win at odds 1.90.

Correct Score odds
We fancy Nantes to win, but in the same time we expect a low-scoring affair. These two sides have scored just one goal each on the first two games of the season. Two of the last four meetings between these two Ligue 1 sides have ended with the 1-0 scoreline and we fancy a similar outcome. Our correct score anticipate Nantes to win 1-0 at odds 5.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Three of the last four games between these two teams have seen few than three goals. Furthermore, both looked short going forward in this early part of the season, having netted just two goals between them. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.53.

First Goalscorer odds
Emiliano Sala is still our first choice to score the opener when Nantes are playing. That’s because he has been incredible for Nantes in the previous two Ligue 1 seasons, scoring 24 goals in this term. Our first goalscorer prediction is Emiliano Sala at odds 4.75.
