Caen vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen)
Nimes have been climbing the table and keeping up with the top 4 with a solid streak of recent, where they bagged four wins in five outings across competitions, and they now travel to Caen in hope they can build on the good-looking series and cause an upset at Stade Michel d’Ornano.
Crocodiles have beaten Dijon, Saint-Etienne, Strasbourg, and most recent Amiens and they’ve seen only a 0-1 home loss to Nice in the process! This is bound to have them confident in Caen too and Bernard Blaquart should have no troubles to lift their team spirits, as his men put in another attempt to keep up with the top of the table.
Caen have, on the other hand, suffered five losses in their last eight outings and earned just three draws in the process, including the points they’ve snatched at Bordeaux and Angers SCO in November. They’ve struggled to score goals on the regular and Nimes will be rightfully hopeful they can capitalize on such troubles too, seeing just one goal in three home outings!
