Under the management of Pierre Aristouy, Nantes started the season very badly, picked up well but went into the November international break on the back of three successive defeats. The most recent of those defeats saw them lose 3-1 at Metz, who had been in terrible form prior to that defeat.
Nantes have remained entertaining throughout their topsy turvy and inconsistent campaign, though, with their 12 matches so far this season consisting of a remarkable 40 goals. They have notched 17 of their own with only two teams managing more, whilst the 23 that they have let in is the most in the entire division.
Following promotion back to the top-flight for the first time in over 15 years last season, Le Havre have enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign, beginning this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting tucked inside the top-half of the table and not too far off the top six and the European qualification spots.
They went into the international break on the back of a four-match unbeaten run of form with their most recent outing being a goalless draw at home to high-flying Monaco a couple of weeks ago. Two of the other three matches in that unbeaten run were also goalless draws so this one really is a clash of styles as they face Nantes.
THE TEAM NEWS
Nantes have a couple of key absentees due to injury with the likes of Douglas Augusto and Fabien Centonze both unavailable as they face Le Havre.
PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Lafont; Duverne, Castelletto, Pallois; Coco, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Merlin; Mollet, Simon; Mohamed
UNAVAILABLE: Augusto (Injured), Centonze (Injured)
Le Havre have several injury concerns as they travel to Nantes but they are also missing some key players due to suspension, such as forward Mohamed Bayo.
PREDICTED XI (3-4-2-1): Desmas; Sangante, Yinkoue, Lloris; Nego, Kuzyayev, Toure, El Hajjam; Alioui, Joujou; Sabbi
UNAVAILABLE: Casimir (Suspended), Bayo (Suspended), Operi (Injured), Targhalline (Injured)
As mentioned, the respective records of these two sides represent something of a clash of styles. With Nantes’ 12 matches consisting of 40 goals and Le Havre managing to be involved in games where there has been just 25 with three goalless draws in their last four matches. Nantes are the favourites for this one with their home advantage and they should surely draw Le Havre into a little bit of a more open encounter, especially as the likelihood of another low-scorer is less now. Nantes to win with a few goals in the game seems a good bet.
