FC Nantes' home venue, the Stade de la Beaujoire in Nantes, offers enough space for up to 37473 visitors. The French team is currently coached by Bosnian Vahid Halilhodzic. The team is currently in tenth place in Ligue 1 (group stage - 36th matchday), with 42% of matches failed. On the other hand, FC Nantes were eliminated in the semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain of the Coupe de France. All in all, 46 goals were conceded, 46 goals scored and 13 out of 36 games won, mainly from Ligue 1. Although the number of players is around 24 years, the 88kg Romanian Ciprian Tatarusanu has had the greatest influence at this value.

The selection has given a game in the current season (against Olympique Nimes), although it was led in the first half. The 5-0 win in Ligue 1's twelfth group stage match against EA Guingamp was decided early after FC Nantes had taken their highest half-time lead of the current four-goal season. Despite a late goal 33 seconds before Emiliano Sala's final whistle, the team failed to triumph over AS Monaco on 11 August 2018. In the 24th Ligue 1 group-phase match against Olympique Nimes on 10 February 2019, the club had the most serious disadvantage of the current season of four full goals. With an average body height of 183cm, FC Nantes' kickers are no smaller than their opponents.

Of the average 13 shots per game on the square, only 33% actually hit it, the rest missed (40%) or were blocked by the competitor (27%). As passably as against Racing Strasbourg (20/4/5) the selection could not play against every competitor. The statistically strongest rival is Paris Saint-Germain with 25 wins, 30 draws and 89 defeats by FC Nantes. The club's last win against Racing Strasbourg was on 1 September 2018, and since then there hasn't been another meeting. In the 29 matches since 11 September 1993, the score for the selection against Racing Strasbourg is 28. In the current season, 30 football players have made it into the starting eleven. Among them will be goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, central defenders Kara Mbodji, Edgar Ie, Diego Carlos, Matt Miazga and Matthew Miazga, as well as Abdoulaye Dabo on the left.

FC Nantes prefer to play Racing Strasbourg in away games, as it is there that the most victories are recorded. The widest goal of the current season was scored by 186cm tall right foot Andrei on November 4, 2018 in the twelfth group phase game of Ligue 1 against EA Guingamp from 21m distance in the 78th minute. Recently, the football team tried the 4-3-3 arrangement against OGC Nice in Ligue 1, which ended in a stalemate (1-1). In the first half, FC Nantes tends to both give up the early lead and take the lead. Despite six successes and seven failures, the 4-3-3 arrangement is currently the most successful of the football eleven.

It took 4 minutes for the team to collect the fastest opposing goal of the current season. This was shot by Stephane Bahoken (LB Chateauroux) in the 14th group phase game of Ligue 1. With a mere 25 wins, 30 stalemates and 89 failures against Paris Saint-Germain in FCN's own arena, this team is also the most difficult rival there. Occasionally, a game is clarified just before the end of the game, for example on 12 April 2019 against Olympique Lyon with a goal from Belgian jersey number 22 Anthony Limbombe in minute 83. FC Nantes only managed such a triumph once again in the current season. Instead of being a part of the starting formation, various kickers sat on the bench before the kick-off. Most of the time this happened to Maxime Dupe (goalie), Samuel Moutoussamy, Lucas Evangelista, Abdoulaye Toure and Rene Krhin (midfielder) plus Fabio (defender).

The goalkeepers of the football team have made a successful effort in keeping opposing shots on goal. With more than seven orders FC Nantes has started in the games of the current season (4-1-2-3, 3-4-3, 4-3-3, 5-2-3, 5-3-2, 4-2-3-1, 4-2-3-1, 3-4-1-2, 3-5-2). The team have suffered a total of two failures in the current season, most recently 94 days ago against Olympique Nimes after two goals from Jordan Ferri and Sada Thioub in minutes 85 and 89. In the club, 4% like to kick with both their right and left feet. In terms of body weight, Nantes FC's average weight of 76 kg tends to be slim, with the most notable being the aging Romanian Ciprian Tatarusanu and the left-footed jersey number 12 Gabriel Boschilia.
