Nantes host Nice on Ligue 1 matchday 36. The match will be played at La Beaujoire-Louis stadium on Saturday, April 30.
Nantes were one of the main contenders for a place in top-3 in the beginning of March but The Canaries took only 1 point in last 5 league matches with 2-10 goal difference and such poor run ended their hopes for successful ending of the season. Instead of battling for the Champions League place next season, the hosts of the match were dropped to 10th place in the standings with 45 points and 31-38 goal difference. Nantes took 26 points in 17 matches at own stadium with 18-18 goal difference. Nantes lost two last matches at home to Lille (0-3) and Montpellier (0-2).

Nice, in turn, don’t slow down their pace and continue battle for Ligue 1 medals. Claude Puel’s men are currently 4th in the standings with 57 points and 53-38 goal difference after 35 matches. Today’s visitors took 10 points in their last 5 matches. Nice played 17 matches of the road, taking 22 points in this matches with positive 23-22 goal difference.
Nantes have advantage in the head-to-head record between the opponents and Nice aren’t able to take 3 points in clashes with the Canaries in last 5 matches. Nantes won the reverse match at Nice 2-1. However, now Nantes are different team. Perhaps they players lack physique or something happened in the club, but it gives Nice solid chance to end this unpleasant streak. Today’s visitors are on the verge of reaching historical achievement and play in the Champions League next year and we can expect Puel’s team at least avoid defeat in clash with such inconvenient opponent.
Prediction for the match: Nice to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
