Nantes vs Lens [Ligue 1 Prediction, August 9th]

Ligue 1 kicks off with the first round of the new season and Nantes look forward to being a lot more successful in the domestic competition than they did in the pre-season friendlies, where they only managed to win once and then recorded two losses and two draws. Even though their opponents are freshly promoted from Ligue 2, one should not take lightly the teams with ambitions to prove themselves.

Nantes barely avoided relegation last season, and want to win the first match and maybe set the ground for doing much better this season. Against both sides is the fact that they are still facing the transfer restrictions imposed by the French Football Federation, plus Itay Shechter might have caught a nasty injury during training. Their leading goalscorer Djorjevic is no longer with the club which leaves Bedoya with the task to score more than their opponents.

Lens were unsure of playing in Ligue 1 up until the last minute, due to financial issues that prevent them from buying out their Ligue 1 license. Now that the issue has been settled the players were asked to perform well even if they might have to start in the line with a goalkeeper with little play time. Lens needs time to adjust to the Ligue 1 rhythm, a thing which Nantes had a year to do.

Unibet prompts Nantes as a favorite and gives them 2.00 odds to win, Lens are given 4.00 and a draw is at 3.20. Both teams to score is at 2.05, and Shechter as an anytime goalscorer is at 3.50. Aristeguieta is at 3.05 and under 1.5 goals is at 2.75, while Nantes to score in both halves is at 3.65. We are going to bet 7 units on Nantes to lead at halftime at 2.70 with Unibet.
