Nantes Paris Saint-Germain betting preview with odds an our tips

Paris Saint-Germain have taken just one point from their last three France. Ligue 1 matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Paris Saint-Germain are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Nantes should prove no easy feat either – Paris Saint-Germain haven’t won against any France. Ligue 1 leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Nantes have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Nantes dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the France. Ligue 1’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Nantes are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Nantes and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Nantes’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Paris Saint-Germain are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Paris Saint-Germain took a point away from Nantes (1-1 draw).

Notably, Nantes’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Nantes have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four France. Ligue 1 away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Paris Saint-Germain, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Paris Saint-Germain getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Paris Saint-Germain are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Nantes hold the best away record in the France. Ligue 1 (W8 D2 L1). Paris Saint-Germain’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Nantes’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Nantesns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Nantes win at 15/2 with bet365.
