Nimes Prediction

Nimes suffered a narrow 1-0 loss at home to Toulouse last time out in Ligue 1 which became a third defeat in four matches for tonight’s hosts as they’d previously fallen to defeats against Lille and Rennes, but recent home wins over Amiens and Nantes at their Stade des Costières should give them confidence of getting something from this encounter.

Nimes hold an unremarkable home record of 3-3-4 12/11 which includes the above aforementioned wins but also defeats to Nice, Lille and Toulouse, but they did run out 4-3 winners away at tonight’s opponents Angers in their last encounter at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.

Although their home record suggests a fair amount of inconsistency, Nimes have kept a total of four clean sheets on home turf so far this season which isn’t a bad defensive record, particularly when you consider they’re placed 12th in Ligue 1.

Midfielder Bouanga (4 goals) and forward Alioui (4 goals) look the most likely goalscorers for Nimes here.


Key-Facts – Nimes v Angers

  • Nimes have kept 4 clean sheets from their 10 home matches in Ligue 1
  • Angers have drawn 4 of their last 5 matches on their travels
  • Angers have failed to score in 3 of their 9 away matches to date


Angers Prediction

Angers occupy two league positions and three points lower than their hosts Nimes as the visitors look to build upon their recent encouraging 1-0 home win over Nantes which ended a run of six matches without a win in the French top flight.

On the flip-side, Angers have suffered just one defeat from their last six matches in Ligue 1 which was a 2-1 defeat at home to Bordeaux, but five draws and two wins have helped Angers stay clear of any immediate danger of relegation.

Wins over Montpellier and Nantes were both recorded at their Stade Raymond-Kopa, but they’ve managed just two away wins this season amidst an overall record of 2-4-3 10/11 which were wins at Dijon and Monaco who both occupy positions in the bottom three of the division.

Angers have drawn four of their last five on their travels and have failed to score in 3 of their 9 away matches to date this term.

Betting Tips Verdict

Nimes could just edge this encounter but the safer play is the draw no bet option on the hosts.
