Christian Gourcuff’s Nantes and Jerome Arpinon’s Nimes lock horns at the Stade de la Beaujoire in French Ligue 1 action on Sunday afternoon.

Nantes Preview – Will the Canaries get the points on home soil?

Nantes finished in 13th place in Ligue 1 last season, winning 11 of their 28 games. Despite winning the same amount as the likes of Nice and Lyon, the Canaries lost a staggering 13 games, with only three teams suffering more defeats.

Nantes picked up five away wins last term, but they were also beaten seven times on the road. They finished up last season with four wins from their last seven league and cup away matches, although they were beaten 2-0 at Angers in their final away fixture of the 2019-20 campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Nimes to score first

(odds taken 2210 GMT, Friday 28 August)

Christian Gourcuff’s men made a bright start last weekend, holding Bordeaux to a goalless draw at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. Can Nantes build on that and pick up maximum points from Sunday’s home game?

Nimes Preview – Can the early leaders make it two wins out of two?

If you glance at the Ligue 1 table right now, you will see Jerome Arpinon’s Nimes at the top. The Crocodiles got off to the perfect start last Sunday, walloping Stade Brest at the Stade des Costieres. Nimes were rampant, with Ahoueke Denkey, Birger Meling, Romain Philippoteaux and Moussa Kone scoring in the 4-0 romp.

Nimes were saved by the 2019-20 campaign ending prematurely last season. After 28 matches, the Crocodiles accumulated just 27 points. They finished a place above the bottom two, four points ahead of Amiens and 14 points clear of bottom side Toulouse. Nimes ended their season with three straight defeats.

After last weekend’s thumping win over Brest, Arpinon’s troops would love to follow that up with a positive result in Nantes at the weekend. At the time of writing, the away team are available at 16/5 to take home maximum points.


Nantes vs Nimes Betting Advice

These two sides only met once last season due to the season being cut short in France. Back in December, Imran Louza’s goal was enough to give Nantes a 1-0 away win. In the 2018-19 season, though, Nimes did the double over the Canaries, scoring five times along the way.


Key Facts – Nantes vs Nimes Betting Tip

  • Nimes beat Nantes home and away in the 2018-19 season
  • Nimes are the early leaders of Ligue 1 after opening with a 4-0 home victory last weekend
  • Nantes started their 2020-21 campaign with a 0-0 draw at Bordeaux


Nantes may be the home team and the favourites, but this one could go either way at the Stade de la Beaujoire. Nimes will still be buzzing from last weekend’s big win, while Nantes will be looking to make home advantage count.

I am having a hard time splitting these two, so have a punt on the 1-1 draw, which you can get at the decent betting odds of 21/4 with Unibet.

After opening the scoring last time out, it could be worth having a few quid on young Togo forward Denkey to open the scoring for Nimes in Nantes this Sunday.
