Claudio Ranieri made the impossible possible when he took Leicester to the Premier League title.
So who’s to say he can’t do it again?
Ranieri’s Nantes side are currently on a run of four wins in a row, each by a single goal.

Looking back further they are unbeaten in six and haven’t lost since a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Marseille on 12 August.
Remember when Leicester kept 15 clean sheets on the way to lifting the title in 2016?
Nantes already have five clean sheets in eight games this season.
Ranieri swapped goalkeeper Maxime Dupe out for Romanian Ciprian Tatarusanu after the first game of the season- a 3-0 loss against Lyon- and Nantes haven’t looked back since.
Putting the ball in the back of the net has been trickier for Ranieri’s team.
Their six goals in eight games is the lowest tally of any team in the top half of the table.
By way of comparison league leaders PSG have scored 27 times while Strasbourg, sitting in 19th, have also scored six times.
But that won’t distract Ranieri from the fact Nantes are currently in fourth, battling it out for an automatic Champions League qualification spot.
Are there any familiar faces?
Even fans with a comprehensive knowledge of English football might struggle to identify both of Nantes’ left wingers.
Yassine El Ghanassy had an unsuccessful loan spell with West Brom while Alexander Kacaniklic was on the books of Liverpool, Fulham, Watford and Burnley.
So can Ranieri pull off Leicester MKII?
