Post match analysis

Comment of the round: With 2 correct and 1 incorrect prediction, I had another profitable week. Even if I expected totally different Lorient in Nantes, my analysis against Caen and against Nancy, were pretty accurate, so all in all I am satisfied with final score.

Metz 2-1 Nancy
Prediction: Metz AH 0

Metz started much better. Sarr prepared decent chance in the beginning of the match, but Nancy's defence saved it. Few minutes later, Sarr was in action again, but this time on his own and he scored for 1-0. Nancy scored after a cross from the right side, so first half finished with 1-1. In second, Metz started better again and in 8 minutes, Fallete shot changed direction after hitting Nguette and finished in the net. Nancy tried to equalise, but unsuccessfully. Closest to score the next goal was Diabate, so it was actually closer to 3-1 than 2-2. All in all, I am little bit disappointed, that I didn't take higher odds with straight win of home team.

Caen 1-5 Marseille
Prediction: Marseille AH -1

As analysed, Thauvin (scored hat-trick) was simply too good for weak defence of Caen. I was talking also about shots from distance, and 3rd goal of Marseille was scored by Gomis after Vercoutre bounced ball directly to him, after Payet's strike from distance. I am totally satisfied with analysis and prediction. More in highlights. 

Nantes 1-0 Lorient
Prediction: over 2,5 goals

Unfortunately Lorient decided to play more defensively than we are used to see from them. Nantes press on them and thanks to Lecomte who had 4 brilliant saves, result at half time was still 0-0. As you'll see on highlights, Lorient didn't create nothing special. As mentioned in analysis, if Lorient won't play their "all out to attack" way of football, then they will be without chances here. Goal of Nantes was "in the air" from starting minute and even if Sala scored in last minutes of the match, they totally deserved it.
