In the French Ligue 1 suggests, as in previous years, a march by the industry leader Paris St. Germain. Although coach Thomas’s side have already lost three games in the current season, the advantage over runner-up Olympique Marseille – despite one less game – is already five points.
PSG vs Nantes Soccer Betting Predictions
Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi and Co. want to take the next step in the defense of the title on Wednesday night. Then PSG receives Nantes. According to the odds of bookmakers, there is nothing to shake the clear favorites of the home side. Odds of 1.17 in the peak for the expected home success implies a likelihood of a whopping 85%.
This one-sided odds distribution is quite understandable, as the Parisians recently presented themselves in front of home crowd very strong and alone in the recent three Ligue 1 home wins scored ten goals and conceded no goal. In addition, the guests from the west of France do not spread much fear and terror abroad.
Five of the previous seven victories celebrated the table sixth in front of their own fans. On the other hand, the “canaries” only scored six goals in seven matches away. The last three on opponent’s place is already over two months in the past.
PSG – Statistics & Current Form
Actually, Paris St. Germain would have had to play Sunday night at AS Monaco, but due to heavy rainfall, the duel of the two most successful French club teams in recent years had to be canceled unfortunately.
Thus, Thomas Tuchel and his team had almost exactly one week to prepare for the upcoming league game against home crowd against FC Nantes. Two days after the Ballon d’Or award, in which Kylian Mbappé or Neymar could not finish among the top three, frustration should be reduced in the domestic championship.
The current leader of the Ligue 1, who, although they have a catch-up game in the Principality still in the hindquarters, already five points ahead of the first pursuer from Marseille is, of course, as a big favorite in the home game on Wednesday evening. Between PSG and Nantes, the odds for the series champion do not even exceed the 1.20 mark.
In fact, it is unlikely that the French capital club will let go during the week. Six of the previous seven home games, the Parisians could decide for themselves. In general, there were eleven victories and three defeats in 14 games.
Interestingly enough, this defensive game is the one to convince. Eight goals conceded on the previous 14 matchdays are an absolute top value, especially when you consider that a whopping nine “clean sheets” have been achieved.
At Prinzenpark, only the FCO Dijon was able to defeat one of Europe’s most powerful defenses at the moment. The remaining six home wins all ended to zero. Consequently, it might make sense to make a bet between PSG and Nantes that the hosts will win again without conceding.
We decide on the fact that the Tuchel-Elf will be back in the league on Saturday and thus maybe slow the pace a bit, but for a bet that “Les Parisiens” will win a sovereign threesome, but do not fall more than three goals during the game. In eight of the eleven league victories in the current season such a recommendation would have passed.
Thilo Kehrer, Ander Herrera, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and the suspended Presel Kimpembe will not be available on Wednesday night. Whether the ailing Marco Verratti is used, will clarify shortly before kick-off. But Thomas Tuchel can rely on his concentrated star power in the offensive. Mbappé, Neymar and Icardi are all expected in the starting eleven.
Expected formation of PSG:
➲ Navas – Diallo, Silva, Marquinhos, Dagba – Draxler, Paredes, Gueye – Neymar, Icardi, Mbappé
➲ Coach: Tuchel
Last games by PSG:
⚽️ 26.11.2019 – Real Madrid Vs. PSG 2: 2 (Champions League)

Nantes – Statistics & Current Form
In just under two months, the anniversary of the death of Emiliano Sala marks the first anniversary. The Argentine attacker crashed in January of this year and died in a fatal accident. Ten months later – certainly in the spirit of Sala – sporty peace has returned to the west of the country.
After finishing twelfth in the previous year, the “canaries” 2019/2020 have been running very well so far. With 23 points, the yellow greens are ranked sixth and thus have immediate access to the European Cup places. However, the lead on rank twelve is only a meager three meters, which is why it must be stated that the informative value of the table currently leaves much to be desired.
Nonetheless, the winnings of seven wins, two draws and six defeats are quite impressive. Even more impressive than the fact that after all, almost half of all league matches have been won, but is the strong defensive on which coach Christian Gourcuff can rely.
Only 14 goals in 15 matches are a solid value. But beware: Appearances are currently deceptive, as nine of these hits were collected by the canaries in the course of their last six games.
The last “clean sheet” was at the beginning of October in a 1-0 home win against OGC Nice. At the same time, this was the only threesome the gourcuff-elf could record until the weekend. After five games without a win, four of which were lost, the table sixth returned on Sunday by a 2-1 win over Toulouse in the right lane and fueled a lot of self-confidence.
The fact that the liberation hit just before home crowd came also little surprise, because 16 of the 23 counters were collected in their own stadium. Away, the yellow-greens conceded only nine goals, but also scored only six goals.
Due to this minimalist existence, which also becomes clear when looking at the results so far, a PSG vs Nantes prediction of a game with under 3.5 goals and a Parisian success quite obvious.
Only once (in the 2: 3 at home against St. Etienne) fell four matches or more in games with FCN participation in the current season. It was also the first and only time in 15 matches that Keeper Lafont had to pass more than twice. With Fabio and Marcus Coco, two players are injured.
Expected formation of Nantes:
➲ Lafont – Traore, Pallois, Girotto, Appiah – Touré, Krhin – Simon, Blas, Louza – Coulibaly
➲ Coach: Gourcuff
Last matches of Nantes:
⚽️ 01.12.2019 – FC Nantes vs. Toulouse 2: 1 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 23.11.2019 – Stade Brest Vs. FC Nantes 1: 1 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 10.11.2019 – FC Nantes vs. AS St. Etienne 2: 3 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 03.11.2019 – Girondins Bordeaux Vs. FC Nantes 2: 0 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 30.10.2019 – FC Nantes vs.. Paris FC 8: 0 (Coupe de la Ligue)

Although “Les Parisiens” won 14 of the past 15 direct duels in the league, but just the last meeting to date ended with an unexpected 3-2 victory of the Yellow Greens. Apart from that, in only six out of 14 cases would a bet on over 3.5 goals have been crowned with success.
