Nancy form and stats

It's not happening yet for Nancy on their Ligue 2 travels, with zero points from their first 2 away games. Maybe today will be different? The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Nancy have lost on their last two travels.

Nancy have the goal stats of 0-2 (for/against) from 2 business trips in the league at this early stage of the season.
