Paris SG vs Nantes: Prediction and Betting Tips
After a midweek UEFA Champions League triumph over Barcelona and qualifying to the quarter-finals, PSG will turn their attention to the Ligue 1 as they aim to overtake Lille at the top of the table and retain their title.
Although PSG are not dominant as they were in previous seasons and had a slow start to this campaign, they have found their form back and are challenging on three fronts. They have one defeat in five matches in Ligue 1 and are two points behind league leaders Lille.
With an attacking force consisting of Mbappe, Neymar, Icardi, and Keane, Coach Mauricio Pocchetino has little worries about getting on the score-sheet. PSG have the best goal-scoring record with 62 goals averaging 2.2 goals per game.
With just four wins all season, Nantes are in deep trouble at the 19th position with 25 points. They can still survive but Coach Antoine Kombouare has a lot of work to do with his team especially in defense as they haven’t had a clean sheet in 11 games.
In their last match, Nantes lost at home to Reims 1-2. The Canaries went ahead in the first half but failed to hold on to their lead, as they have done so many times before in their previous matches. Nantes had more chances with 12 attempts and five on target but the visitors won the game with just two shots on goal.
- Paris SG have lost two of their last eight home matches
- Paris SG have scored in six of their last eight home matches
- Nantes haven’t lost their last two away matches
- Nantes have scored in their last three away matches
Paris SG vs Nantes Prediction
The Parisian slide are clear favorites to win this match. The odds are obviously very low in favour of PSG to win with 1.18. Looking at PSG’s goal-scoring record, it is interesting to see that they scored in both halves in 57% of their matches. Nantes have conceded in both halves in 36% of their away matches.
It is an interesting bet to play PSG to score in both halves with an odds of 1.85. Taking into consideration PSG’s attacking power and their urgency to score, and the fact that Nantes don’t have a good defensive record, we will back PSG to score in both halves.
