Nantes form and stats

OK but not perfect. That could be the conclusion for Nantes's two home games in the Ligue 1 so far this season, having collected 4 points here at Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau.

Nantes lost their last game at Nice (placed 8th) after a 1-2 scoreline. Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Nice (1-2).

Nantes's goalkeeper Alban Lafont was extremely busy against Nice, saving the team from a uglier defeat with a stunning six saves.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Nantes have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found 14 games) they have won seven times, drawn two and lost five.

At Stade de la Beaujoire - Louis Fonteneau, Nantes has the goal stats of 4-3 (for/against) from 2 league fixtures.

Brest form and stats

Things could have gone better for Brest in their Ligue 1 away matches, but 3 points from 3 games is all right.

Brest are travelling after their nice 1-0 home win in the Ligue 1 against Monaco (placed 6th). It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Angers SCO wasn't a success with a 2-3 loss.

We have checked recent matches where Brest have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those nine games were zero victories, three draws and six defeats.

Brest have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 3 league away games 4 goals have been scored. The Brest manager O. Dall’Oglio has some worries about the defense as 7 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Nantes-Brest H2H statistics last six meetings regardless of arena: Nantes three wins, Brest two wins, one draw. four of these six matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
