Nantes take on the visitors Marseille at "La Beaujoire" in the round two of the French Ligue 1. The game will be played on Saturday, August 12th.
Last season Nantes occupied the seventh place in the elite division because of the furious football in the second part of the season under the rule of Sergio Conceicao. In summer the Portuguese moved to FC Porto, while Claudio Ranieri was appointed to the head-coach's position of "Les Canaris". And Nantes failed in the first encounter under the rule of the Italian, having lost it to Lille with 0:3 scoreline. "Les Canaris" have huge problems in offense as, taking into consideration friendly matches, they managed to score only four goals for alongside with eight goals against in six clashes which means that Claudio Ranieri should find a way of increasing the side's effectiveness in attack.

Marseille entered the season with great ambitious for it, having proved them by the play and results. In the first gameweek Rudi Garcia's team simply trashed Dijon with 3:0 scoreline in front of its supporters. In regard to the club's results at away grounds, "Les Olympiens" have not been defeated on the road since the 12th of February across seven encounters in a row, having got two victories and five draws in them.
Marseille have slight historical advantage in this pair. The rivals entered the season in different competitive form: Nantes are only looking for their game, having suffered in all team's lines while the visitors are seemed to find balance in all lines, besides, the club has one of the strongest roster in France.
Prediction for the match: Marseille to win.
