Amiens vs Nimes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Licorne (Amiens).
Amiens are in 17th but they do have a 5 point gap to the relegation zone, so a little breathing space, but this would be a big win for the club when they take on Nimes on Saturday evening.
Form for Amiens is good with 1 loss in their last four and they have gone on a 2 game unbeaten run where they beat Nice 1-0 in a shock result and then drew against in form Reims 2-2, and they were heading for all 3 points in that game.
The club’s form has peaked just at the right time and they will want to take something from this home match.
Nimes are in 11th place with 36 points and they have had a successful season. They lost 3-0 in their last game, but that was away to PSG, although it did stop a 3 game unbeaten run. But that defeat wouldn’t have affected the players too badly.
Away from home has been decent overall but poor recently and they come into this match having lost 3 of their last 4 games. A win at the weekend could put the club into the top 10.
Amiens vs Nimes: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Nimes eased to a 3-0 win.
Last time the teams met in 2017 Nimes beat Amiens away from home 2-1.
The last 3 meetings have all been over 2.5 goals.
Amiens vs Nimes: Prediction
Nimes are the better side but Amiens should take a lot of heart from their recent form which has been decent. They are determined to stay up and if they do a lot will count on how they perform at home.
Nimes recent away form is not good and Amiens can pounce on that to get a win here, but we do expect a very close match, so minimum stakes at decent odds for the home win and we will also look into the goalscorer market for the home side.
