Brest vs Nimes: Preview and Predictions

Brest vs Nimes
France – Ligue 2
Date: Monday, 19 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stade Francis-Le Ble (Brest).

Brest and Nimes are going to wrap up the 30th round of French Ligue 2 in the Monday evening clash. The hosts want to get closer to the promotion playoffs zone, while the away side is looking to remain on the second place.

Brest are currently sitting on the 9th place and in the last five games they’ve booked three wins and two draws. However, they are not so far from the promotion playoffs since they are five points behind Paris FC and with the potential win from this one they could come even closer. Jean Furlan’s side is fairly good in the final third, while their defence is doing a decent job. The hosts could have done better when playing in front of their fans since they allowed four defeats and in the last five matches they booked only one win. In case they continue with good performances, they might challenge the promotion playoff spot since the competition is pretty balanced.

The visitors are enjoying a very good season and if they book a win in this clash, they will keep secure the second position. In the last six matches they haven’t tasted a defeat and they managed to win three times in a row. Umut Bozok and the lads are the most efficient side in the competition and they have scored 59 goals so far in the season. Nimes are playing very well at away grounds where they picked up eight victories in 14 matches. They are very serious contenders for retaining the 2nd position which will secure them the spot in the Ligue 1 next season.

Brest v Nimes: Head-to-head

Nimes have been a bit more successful lately and in the last five matches we saw them winning three times. These two sides haven’t drawn since 2014, and generally speaking, draws are very rare when these teams meet each other. Their last three games were pretty efficient and we were able to see at least three goals.

Brest v Nimes: Prediction

This is going to be a very interesting clash and the visitors might continue their excellent form and get back with a win in their pocket.

Since both teams have been involved in high scoring matches lately, in this one we are expecting to see at least three goals, probably in both nets.
