WHEN Tino Kadewere left Olympique Lyon for Franch Ligue 1 rivals Nantes, for the remainder of the season pending a permanent transfer, his new club were sitting comfortably on the standings. 

His parent club were at the bottom end of the table.

Two months down the line, Lyon are now 10th in the 18-team league and quite some distance from the relegation zone they occupied in the first half of the season. Nantes are now in 16th place, occupying the third and final relegation slot, six points behind Lyon.  

If the season ended today, Nantes would be relegated while Lyon would be safe.

Tomorrow, Nantes are involved in a six-pointer at home to Strasbourg, who are also in the relegation mix, and just one point above Kadewere’s team.

Nantes have lost three of their last five matches and won the other two while scoring just three goals against seven.

Kadewere and company have fired blanks in three of the last four matches, a worrying statistic that spells doom.

Tomorrow Nantes have a chance to redeem themselves against a Strasbourg side that is winless in the last five matches and also struggling to score goals.
