PREVIEW: EVIAN - NANTES
Alejandro Bedoya and FC Nantes will head on the road to face Evian TG in Ligue 1 action on Friday.
Unfortunately, they will do so without their leading scorer Filip Djordjevic, who will miss his third and final match due to a suspension from a red card incident against Lyon.
Nantes desperately needs a win in this match, they have not won in six straight Ligue 1 matches and are coming off of a brutal home loss to Rennes. Bedoya was a late substitute in that match.
With that loss, Nantes has now dropped to 14th in Ligue 1, nine points above Valenciennes in the relegation zone.
Fortunately, Nantes is facing an Evian squad that is in a cold spell of its own recently. Evian has not won a Ligue 1 match since mid-December.
The last time these two clubs met, Nantes won 3-0, although that was a home match for Nantes. Bedoya did not appear in that match.
Bedoya will need to be careful in this match as he now has two yellow cards in Ligue 1 play.
