Nimes Prediction

Nimes find themselves in the bottom half of Ligue 1 following recent back-to-back defeats against Lille and Rennes, losing -2 and 4-0 respectively, which has left them in 13th place on the Ligue 1 ladder.

Nimes had previously registered three league wins on the trot with victories against Strasbourg, Amiens and Caen – the latter two clubs also sitting in the lower reaches of the division, while Nimes hold a home record of 2-3-3 11/10 which includes just one win from their last seven on home turf.

The hosts started brightly enough with a resounding 3-1 win over Marseille, but the rigours of top flight football has started to take its toll and they’ll have their work cut out to avoid being dragged down into the relegation fight below them I fancy, in this their first season in Ligue 1.


Key-Facts – Nimes v Nantes

  • Nimes have lost their last two league matches on the trot
  • Nantes have won just once in their last seven away matches
  • Nantes’ striker Sala (12 goals) is 3rd highest goalscorer in Ligue 1


Nantes Prediction

Not that Nantes have fared much better so far this season as they sit just one league position above their hosts but level on 23 points apiece as we head into the Wednesday night action in Ligue 1.

Nantes have produced mixed results in recent weeks as they’ve recorded wins over 9th placed Marseille and 5th placed Montpellier, but have also fallen to defeats against Saint-Etienne, PSG and Rennes, although all of these losses were to clubs sitting in the top seven of the French top flight.

Although they’re away from home for this encounter, Nantes will see this fixture as a chance to improve a poor away record that stands at 2-2-5 8/16 which includes just one win from their last seven matches also, which is a similar sequence to that of their hosts, Nimes.

However, there’s one very important difference between the two sides; Nantes striker Sala (12 goals) has enjoyed a successful season to date and could help Nantes to at least a point in this clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

Nimes have struggled for wins on home turf this season, and whilst the same could be said for Nantes away from home, the ‘Sala factor’ could play a big part in this result.
