Match Date: 25 October 2014 (local time)

Sporting an undefeated run, Nantes is determined to keep a clean slate when it meets a struggling Evian Thonon Gaillard.

 

The contenders

Evian Thonon Gaillard

Evian is at risk of hitting the relegation zone soon should they fail to pick up three (3) points in its upcoming match.

 

Just recently, the squad experienced a disappointing loss to AS Monaco. Last season’s title contender fired two (2) goals while keeping them at bay. Due to the said loss, Evian dropped into the 17th spot of the Ligue 1 table, just a notch away from the relegation zone.

 

Nantes

Nantes just had a 5-match undefeated streak and they are keen on keeping such record when they go against the football betting minnow, Evian.

 

Although it was disappointing to see that its derby against Reims ended in an even steven finish, it was enough to keep a clean slate. Unfortunately, the said result pushed them downwards in the Ligue 1 table. Nantes fell into the 6th spot after the outcome of the said match.

 

Nantes has only lost twice in their last ten (10) matches. Four (4) of them ended in victory, whilst the other four (4) resulted in a draw.

 

Possible head turners

Scoring Nantes’ first and lost goal during the Reims derby, there is a strong possibility for Johan Audel to feature in the upcoming match again.

 

Prediction

Evian Thonon Gaillard 0-3 Nantes
