Les Canaris have been conceding pretty frequently lately, although they have also found ways to score goals themselves.

With no two games being the same, we’ll just have to find out whether that trend will be maintained in this game.

Team News: Nantes
Nantes manager Antoine Kombouaré will be thankful to have no fitness concerns to speak of before this match with a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Bordeaux
Bordeaux boss Jean-Louis Gasset has to currently contend with reduced team options. Laurent Koscielny (Tendon crack) and Otávio (Achilles tendon rupture) are not able to play.
We’re inclined to think that Bordeaux should have enough to put one past this Nantes side, however it possibly won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
We can see a close game with a 2-1 victory for Nantes by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. There looks to be little in this one.
