Captain Valentin Rongier is currently the most valuable player in the Halilhodzic squad. Rongier is the linchpin in the midfield of Nantes. With Abdoulaye Touré gets Rongier in midfield neat reinforcement. The most dangerous player in the squad is Gabriel Boschilia with eight points scorer. In the offensive, the 23-year-old plays a major role and is next to striker Majeed Waris hard to imagine. In recent games, the Halilhodzic-Eleven did not show very promising performances. In addition to playful tours had to be criticized as the opportunity exploitation. In the recent league match against Toulouse went from 19 shots only a single on the goal of the opponent. If Nantes present themselves in a similar fashion to Lyon, there is nothing to suggest for the home side.
