Nantes vs Juventus Kick Off Time
NAME: FC Nantes – Juventus
DATE: 23 Feb 2023
TIME: 17:45 UTC
VENUE: Stade de la Beaujoire, Nantes, France
A place in the last 16 of the Europa League is up for grabs as Juventus travel to the Stade de la Beaujoire to face Nantes in the second leg of their playoff tie on Thursday night.
The tie is nicely poised after the two sides played out a 1-1 draw in a closely-fought first-leg contest in Turin last week.
Despite falling behind in the 13th minute from a Dusan Vlahovic strike, a devastating Canaries counter-attack resulted in Ludovic Blas firing home a 60th-minute equaliser, netting his third goal in his last four games.
Nantes, who finished second in Group G of the Europa League earlier this season, are still in with a chance of progressing from a knockout round of a major European competition for the first time since the 2000-01 season when they beat Laussane-Sport in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup.
Kombouare and co were unable to follow up their impressive midweek draw with another positive result as they were beaten 3-1 away against Lens in Ligue 1 last weekend – a result that leaves them languishing 13th in the French top-flight table, albeit nine points clear of the relegation zone.
Nantes have shown their resilience on home soil so far this season, losing only three times in 14 matches at the Stade de la Beaujoire across all competitions. The Canaries have already secured home wins over Olympiacos and Qarabag in the Europa League group stage this term, but coming out on top against Juve would be their biggest triumph of all.
Indeed, Juve had their fair share of chances and dominated possession in the first leg with Nantes, but allowing the French side to restore parity with their only shot on target ultimately proved costly.
The Old Lady – two-time European Cup/Champions League winners and three-time UEFA Cup winners – are now at risk of being eliminated in the knockout rounds of a European competition for a fifth successive year, and the prospect of losing against one of the rank outsiders is something Massimiliano Allegri and co will be keen to avoid.
Nantes possible starting lineup:
Lafont; Victor, Girotto, Pallois; Centonze, Sissoko, Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Coco; Blas, Mohamed
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; De Sciglio, Danilo, Bremer, Sandro; Fragioli, Locatelli, Rabiot; Di Maria, Vlahovic, Kostic
