Niort vs Nancy (By: Mrgol)
01/02 Ligue 2
NIORT - NANCY 1[/b] @ 2.24 pinnacle 1/10
Bet against market, in dropping odds for guests should have an influence also the miss of topscorer N'Doh ( 11g on 24 scored by the team) for hosts, Sans ( def. 9+1) is another new absence, Bena ( midf.13+3 1g) and Koyalipou ( att. 9+3 1g) remain out with the second out since November.
Niort gained only one point in first three matches of 2019, but in last 1-0 away defeat with Orleans ( already without N'Doh) was also penalized by a field in bad conditions.
Anyway, also for Nancy is not a great period. After a brief period among November and december in which seemd something improved, guests, second from bottom with only four wins and four draws in the whole season, returned in bad period with only one win ( against Auxerre) and four defeats in first five rounds of new year ( also if they played with three teams in higher part of table).
Nancy remain bad far from home, too ( 2-2-7 8/18), while Niort has, among other things, one of the best home defences in league ( 5-3-2 13/8). More, guests played in midweek, too ( 3-0 defeat with Metz) and this will be second away match in few days, while hosts have three days more of rest.
Finally, also if hosts are without their topscorer, Nancy cannot be happy seeing team news.
Topscorer Dembelè ( att.8+4 3g) suspended, Busin ( midf.9+3 1g) and Nery ( def.11) are new absences, Chernik ( keeper, 17 played most part of season also if Assembe is the first choice), Muratori ( def. 10+1), Marchetti ( midf.14+3 1g) remain out ( all recent absences, anyway), Ba ( midf.9+4), N'Guessan ( midf.14+1), Mabolou ( att.6+4 1g) not called for technical choice. Arrived just last week, newcomers Poha and Marveaux should debut in this match.
Considering the whole season hosts should be favourite here ( and they already7 won on Nancy's field in August), bad period and absence of N'Doh give a bit more chances to Nancy to gain at least a draw, but seeing number and importance of absences and Nancy that remain with poor performances i don't see reasons for these high odds for home win.
