FC Nantes must immediately bounce back in Ligue 1 by facing RC Lens. The Sang et Or have the ambition to stay on the championship podium by beating the Canaries. Discover the latest information around the meeting.
FC Nantes is having a difficult start to the season as Europeans. The Canaries are fifteenth in Ligue 1 and have just suffered a first defeat in the league (0-3). From now on, the men of Antoine Kombouaré are back to the wall before the reception of the Blood and Gold during this eighth day. The red zone is getting closer even if the FCN has had little success on the calendar.
The RC Lens can hardly do better. These beginnings of the Blood and Gold are legendary with five successes and two draws. The third best attack and defense in the championship presents itself with a lot of certainty. Franck Haise has elevated his group into an offensive and hard-hitting fortress. On the move, it will still be necessary to prove with sometimes sluggish performances.

Even if FC Nantes has no injuries or suspensions announced, the Canaries will have to rotate in view of the long trip on Thursday evening. Kombouaré will have to launch some young people.
Starting XI: Lafont – Appiah, Girotto, Pallois, Fabio – Chirivella, Sissoko – Ganogo, Blas – Guessand, Mohamed
Three big absences to note for Franck Haise: Wesley Saïd, Jonathan Gradit and Deiver Machado, all injured. Seko Fofana should be able to return to the starting XI.
Starting XI: Samba – Cabot, Haidara, Danso, Medina, Frankowski – Abdul Samed, Fofana – Sotoca, Openda, Costa
RC Lens is not too blunt, was able to prepare for the meeting while FC Nantes plagued by doubts and has just returned from a trip of more than 5,000 km. For us, the RCL will easily win against the Canaries thanks to Florian Sotoca and David Costa. Another setback for Nantes too limited to play two competitions thoroughly.
FC Nantes 0 – 2 RC Lens
