We can see from the Nantes vs Strasbourg odds that the home team are the expected winners, though not by a wide margin and the odds do vary from one bookie to another.

In the last five H2H meetings, Strasbourg have two wins, Nantes one, along with a couple of draws. However, situation is much different when it comes to the overall H2H record between these two teams – 42-19-25 in favour of Nantes.

Nantes preview: Hoping to escape the relegation zone

While they did win twice in their last six games in the league, Nantes have lost the other four matches and they are currently sitting in the relegation zone. On the bright side, more than a few teams are in close proximity, fighting for survival, so Nantes are far from done yet.

When it comes to team news, Bastien Meupiyou is injured right now, while Douglas Augusto is suspended.

Strasbourg preview: The bad streak continues

It's now been eight rounds since Strasbourg last won a game and they've gone from a mid-table team to being just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone. So, Strasbourg's fans are in for a stressful end of the season, unless the team can turn their form around dramatically soon.

Meanwhile, Moise Sahi, Abakar Sylla, Jessy Deminguet, Lebo Mothiba, and Angelo Gabriel are on the team's injury list.

Player to watch: Mostafa Mohamed

With seven goals in Ligue 1 this season, Mohamed has been the leading scorer for Nantes in the league and one of the key reasons why Nantes still have a good chance to avoid relegation.

Will Mohamed score the first goal?

Four of Mohamed's seven goals in the league came in the first halves and furthermore, three of his goals were the first goal in the match, so he's a good choice for first goalscorer in this game.
