There are two matches in Ligue 1 for us to look at on Tuesday night and there is some value to be had. Nantes beat Nice 1-0 in the French Cup final at the weekend, so both teams that missed their league action are playing their game in hand on Tuesday.

  • Nantes vs Stade Rennais – Rennes To Win & Have Over 3 Corners (1.95)

Nice vs St Etienne Best Bets

Tuesday, May 11th, 18:00 (UK Time)

Nice have been enduring a torrid run of form since the start of March and it has put a real dent in their ambitions of playing European football next season. Christophe Galtier joined the club on the back of an unexpected Ligue 1 title win with Lille, and there was a lot of optimism surrounding the club going into the campaign.

Nice have found goals hard to come in their recent matches, averaging marginally over one goal per game. However, I don’t expect that theme to continue here. Nice won the reverse fixture 3-0 and St Etienne matches have been seeing a heap of goals of later. Pascal Dupraz’s side are conceding a lot and their opponents average over two goals per game in their last five matches.

Galtier’s men will be bitterly disappointed with their cup final defeat and they will want to ensure they bounce back by making strides towards playing European football next season by securing a win here. They currently sit two points behind 4th place and five points behind 3rd place with a game in hand, so Champions League football isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

Their poor attacking record in recent matches has been compensated slightly by a strong defensive record. Nice opponents are averaging just 0.7 goals per game in their last 10 matches. As a result, I’m happy to back Nice to win to nil in this one. bet365 are offering 2.62 and this is a very reasonable price.

  • Selection: Nice To Win to Nil
  • Best Odds: 2.75 (Bet 365)
  • Stake: 7/10

Nantes vs Stade Rennais Best Bet

Tuesday, May 11th, 20:00 (UK Time)

Nantes secured their first French Cup win in 22 years at the weekend and there may be some hangover heading into this one. The team have very little to play for because they are locked firmly in the middle of the table.

Stade Rennais currently occupy 4th spot and are closing in on Monaco in third. A win would do wonders for their Champions League ambitions and they will look to take full advantage of any tired legs here.

Nantes have just one win over Rennes in their last 10 meetings and they have lost six of them. The visitors have won their last two matches 2-0 and 5-0, so they come into this one with full confidence. bet365 have Stade Rennais priced at 1.57 for the win, so I’ll add another angle to create a better price here.

Rennes are averaging over five corners per game in their last 10 matches and Nantes opponents are also averaging over five per game. Combining the away side to win the game and have over three corners gives us a healthy price of 1.95.

  • Selection: Rennes To Win & Have Over 3 Corners
  • Best Odds 1.95 (Bet 365)
  • Stake: 9/10
