BRANDON WIGGINS - Friday, March 7, 2014
Alejandro Bedoya and FC Nantes have a huge chance to get out of a terrible losing streak when they host Ajaccio this Saturday.
Nantes has not won in seven straight Ligue 1 matches now, with five of those results being losses.
It has been a brutal skid for a club that was at one point competing for a spot in a European competition next season, but now sits in 15th place in the league, nine points ahead of the relegation zone.
Fortunately, Nantes is facing an Ajaccio club that is last in the league with 14 points.
In even better news for Nantes, the club's leading scorer Filip Djordjevic will finally be back in the fold after serving a three match suspension due to a red card incident against Lyon.
Although the club's losing streak is disappointing, Bedoya has still been getting regular playing time as he continues to try and fight his way onto one of the last midfield spots on the U.S. World Cup roster.
He does, however, have two yellow cards in Ligue 1, so he will need to be careful to avoid picking up another penalty.
