Freiburg 21/20 to beat Nantes in Thursday’s Europa League battle
Competition: Europa League
Market: Freiburg win
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Looking to move one step closer to the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, Freiburg will make the trip to Nantes on Thursday evening.
Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend putting in another woeful display, Nantes find themselves in the midst of an extended rut. In their opening three Europa League matchups so far this season, the French outfit have recorded a single victory against two defeats, scoring two and conceding six in return. Managing to muster a points tally of three from a possible nine, they currently find themselves sat third in the Group G standings and three points adrift of climbing into the top-two. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen on domestic duties getting hit with a thumping 3-0 loss away at Rennes, Nantes have now failed to win any of their previous six matchups across all formats. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Thursday’s hosts have won just a pair of their last six home fixtures.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a hugely impressive run of form since opening the 2022/23 campaign, Freiburg should be smelling the chance to lay down another marker here. In their opening three Europa League matchups so far this season, they have recorded three consecutive victories, scoring seven and conceding just a single strike in return. Managing to muster nine points and the only team that can boast a 100% start in Group A, Freiburg also hold a six-point buffer over their midweek opponents. As for their recent run of results, last seen on domestic duties playing out a 2-2 draw away at Hertha Berlin, Thursday’s guests are unbeaten in each of their previous 10 matchups across all formats. Picking up a 2-0 win when they faced off against Nantes last week, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
