Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Nantes play host to Auxerre at their Stade de la Beaujoire in their first game of 2023. Les Canaris are eager to escape the danger zone, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in Ligue 1. Goalkeeper Denis Petric and defender Fabio da Silva are out of contention with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
The visitors, on the other hand, failed to shock Monaco in their last league match, with the team remaining in bottom four in the standings. Christophe Pellisier’s men have already suffered six defeats on the road this season, and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Sunday’s clash. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Pays de la Loire.
Highlighted Player (Alban Lafont):
Alban Lafont is a French goalkeeper who plays for Ligue 1 side Toulouse. Born in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, Lafont joined AS Lattoise youth school at the age of nine and he stayed at the academy until 2014 when he moved to Toulouse.
The 193-cm-tall goalkeeper has established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper at Toulouse and it has to be noted that he made 36 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 season, keeping 10 clean sheets in the process. Due to his dual citizenship, Alban Lafont is eligible to represent both Burkina Faso and France on international stage, but he has yet to play for the African team.
Alban Lafont represented les Tricolores at youth level and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of the talented shoot-stopper who was born on January 23, 1999. The rising star has a contract with Toulouse which expires on June 30, 2020.
