Nimes Preview – Can Nimes return to winning ways?

Although Friday’s hosts in this Ligue 1 fixture, Nimes, currently sit third from bottom in the French top flight, the home side have captured 4 wins from their last 5 matches as they prepare for the visit of high-flying Marseille at their Stade des Costières.

Nimes had recently put together an impressive 4-match winning streak in Ligue 1 with victories over Monaco 3-1, Dijon 2-0, Nice 3-1 and Angers 1-0, but this momentum was checked in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat away from home at Rennes.

Nevertheless, Nimes have shown they’re up for this relegation battle and their recent wins should still give them confidence and belief that they can get something out of this encounter against Marseille, especially as the hosts have won their last 3 home matches on the trot.

An overall home record of 6-2-5 15/12 actually includes Nimes winning 4 of their last 5 matches in their own backyard while losing just 1 of their previous 4 meetings at home against Marseille.

Marseille Preview – Can Marseille further cement 2nd spot?

A 3-1 defeat at home to Nantes in last weekend’s Ligue 1 loss saw Marseille’s previous 3-match winning streak come to an abrupt end and they’ll no doubt be keen to return to winning ways themselves when they make their way to Nimes on Friday night.

Although Marseille have won the last two encounters on the trot against Friday night’s opponents, Nimes, these were both achieved on home turf at their Orange Vélodrome but their last visit to Nimes ended in a heavy 3-1 defeat back in August 2018.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 15 matches in the French top flight, Marseille will be hard to stop in this clash, especially as they possess a solid looking away record that stands at 7-4-2 17/13 which includes recording back-to-back wins at Saint-Etienne and Lille.

5 wins from their last 10 matches away from home though gives Nimes a chance to get something out of this encounter.
