Nantes continue good run

Nantes continue good run

Nantes meets Marseille in a match where both of them are hoping to continue their unbeaten run. Nantes is a team who have yet to taste a defeat ever since they return from the World Cup break. On the other hand, Marseille have also not lost in any game in Ligue 1 since October, which is a good sign for them. For this match, these two teams are hoping to continue their good run in the league. If they want to continue this run, they need to go all-out in this game, as they are two of the teams who have a good momentum. Marseille host this match on February 2, 2023, at 2:00 AM (GMT+8).

This meeting will be the 98th meeting between these two teams, where it was the hosts who have claimed more wins. The hosts won 44 of those 98 matches, while the visitors won 29 matches, and the remaining 24 games ended in draw. They last met each other in August 2022, where the hosts claimed a 2-1 victory. Additionally, they have won their last five games against the visitors, and drew one. The visitors on one hand were able to keep seven consecutive clean sheets across all competitions. Five of those matches come in Ligue 1, so they come in this match with a good momentum. This is the record they are hoping to protect when they go against a team like Marseille.

From the recent weeks, this squad is actually in a very good form, may it be in offense or defense. In the league table, this squad is at the 13th of the league table with 22 points. However, even if this squad win in this game, they can only retain their spot as they are four points behind the 12th team. Although they are doing well, their poor start this season is the main reason why they are in a less safe place in the league table. Due to this poor start, they are now with a a goal difference of -3. However, they can gain confidence from the fact that they were able to keep seven consecutive clean sheets across all competitions.

The bad news for this game is the fact that they need to continue with limited options in this game. Quentin Merlin is sidelined until March due to his groin injury. Denis Petric and Nicolas Pallois are both expected to be back this month from their injuries.

This is a team who is coming from a goalless draw against Clermont Foot, and another 1-1 draw against Monaco. They are just lucky that Alexis Sanchez was able to equalize that game during the second half. Before that draw, this squad is actually on an eight-game winning streal across all competitions. It is just unfortunate that they were not able to continue their run on their last meeting. In the league table, they are at the third, with 43 points. A win in this game could bring them at the second spot, as they will be with 46 points with a win.

They continue to be without Eric Bailly, as he continue to serve his five-game suspension. Additionally, Jonathan Clauss still needs a few weeks to fully recover from his injury.
