Nimes Prediction – Can Nimes break drought?

The hosts bring a sequence of 9 matches without a win in Ligue 1 into this Friday night clash at home to Lyon as Nimes look to finally break the shackles and gain a much-needed 3 points on home turf at their Stade des Costières.

This winless run has dropped Nimes into the relegation zone and second from bottom in Ligue 1, and having managed just 2 wins so far this season, it looks as though a long, tough battle against relegation is in store for Friday night’s hosts.

With 5 defeats and 4 draws from these last 9 matches, this means that Nimes have picked up just 4 points from the last possible 27 on offer, so the prospect of a home win here looks distinctly unlikely, even though both of Nimes’ wins this season have been recorded at home.

An overall home record of 2-2-2 7/5 includes wins against Brest 3-0 and Toulouse 1-0, but they’ve since failed to win their last 3 matches and they’ve also lost both of their previous encounters against Lyon in Ligue 1, losing 3-2 at home and 2-0 away from home.

Lyon Prediction – Can Lyon catapult into 4th spot?

Mid-table Lyon will be desperate to return to winning ways and bounce back from their midweek 1-0 defeat at home to Lille when they make their way to Nimes for this important Friday night clash.

Prior to their loss to Lille in the week, Lyon had posted back-to-back wins against Nice and Strasbourg, so the visitors will still be in reasonably confident mood that they can redeem themselves on the road at the Stade des Costières, and indeed if they do, 10th placed Lyon could find themselves in 4th place by the end of the evening.

Results away from home have been a mixed bag for Lyon who possess an overall away record of 3-2-3 13/11 on their travels so far this term, and a snap-shot of these results in recent weeks is reflected with Lyon recording wins at Toulouse and Strasbourg but also losing at Saint-Etienne and Marseille – although these defeats were against opposition sitting 5th and 2nd in Ligue 1.

With the likes of Dembele (10 goals) and Depay (7 goals) amongst their attacking personnel, Lyon should have the edge in quality in the final third over their opponents this evening.


Key-Facts – Nimes vs Lyon

  • Nimes are without a win from their last 9 matches in Ligue 1
  • A win for Lyon on Friday night could see them jump into 4th place
  • Lyon have won both previous encounters v Nimes, 3-2 and 2-0


Betting Tips Verdict

Nimes seem to have lost all confidence while Lyon have plenty of incentive to grab the points here – back the visitors with the handicap.
