BRANDON WIGGINS - Friday, October 4, 2013
Alejandro Bedoya and FC Nantes will look to extend their winning streak to three games when they face Evian Thonon Gaillard FC at home in Ligue 1 this Saturday.
Bedoya and Nantes are coming off of a strong 3-1 on the road win last weekend against Stade Rennais FC, and 2-0 home victory over OGC Nice the weekend before that.
These past two wins have Bedoya and Nantes riding high for a club that was just promoted to Ligue 1, as Nantes currently sits all the way up at sixth place in the Ligue 1 standings.
Bedoya has been a key contributor for the club since his summer transfer, logging a good number of minutes in most of Nantes' matches so far this season, and he has been a regular in the team's midfield rotation.
Although Bedoya did not start last weekend, he still came on in the 24th minute and played solidly for Nantes.
This weekend, Nantes will face an Evian TG club that has not won a match outright in over three weeks and sits in the bottom half of the Ligue 1 standings, which presents them with a great chance to extend their winning streak and build on a strong first half of the season.
However, Bedoya and a number of other key Nantes players including leading goal scorer Filip Djordjevic all have one yellow card and will have to be careful this match.
