Nantes vs Auxerre – French Cup: In one of this Tuesday’s matches in France, counting towards the Coupe de France’s 16th finals.
The local side Nantes and the visiting side Auxerre face off in Nantes, at the Stade de la Beaujoire.
On a match between two teams that will meet for the first time since 2013, where at the time they met in Coupe de La Ligue and Nantes ended up winning 1-0.
The home side is making a very positive campaign on several levels, being on a very positive position in the French Ligue 1.
Being very consistent defensively and not so much offensively (typical from an Italian manager such as Claudio Ranieri).
Although they are currently on their worst streak of results since the start of the season, with 3 consecutive matches without a win and only having scored 1 goal in that period.
As for the visiting side, one of the historical clubs of French football, they have been making a globally positive campaign, being roughly on a mid-table position of Ligue 2 and already having very slim chances of achieving promotion.
On the Cups, after having been eliminated early from the League Cup, they have in Coupe de France a chance to save the season at that level.
The team is coming off a good streak of results, with 3 wins on their last 4 matches, presenting a remarkable offensive record (14 goals scored).
Nantes vs Auxerre – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Against a Nantes that is a very consistent team defensively and on a knock-out match.
I believe this will be a low-scoring affair and a very close one, both in the 1st and in the 2nd half of this match.
|1st Half – Under 1 Goal||
