FC Nantes will have “ more to gain than to lose “This Thursday against Olympiakos, and” it’s quite nice “, underlined the Nantes defender Dennis Appiah before the last group match of the Europa League of the Canaries. In the worst case, Antoine Kombouaré’s players will finish third with the assurance of being transferred to the Europa League Conference. The possibility of taking second place from Karabakh – and thus continuing the course in C3 – exists but it will not entirely depend on them. Nantes must win at the Karaïskakis stadium and hope that Karabagh bows at the same time against Fribourg. ” We have a huge chance to continue the adventuresaid Appiah. There is no calculation to do “.
Against a formation from Piraeus already eliminated, which Nantes had beaten in the first leg (2-1) and which has not yet won a single match at home, Kombouaré described the two possible scenarios: “ We can have in front of us a relaxed team which will want to win at home and which will deliver a great match, or a demobilized team. It will depend on us. I expect a complicated match with a team that will want to please its public “. It has not escaped the Nantes coach that a success on Thursday would also be “the best way” to prepare for the trip to Reims on Sunday in the Championship.
With the exception of Fabien Centonze (unqualified) and Charles Traoré (injured), the FCN will present themselves in full.
