France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).
Both teams had missed the European cut-off in 2018-19. Either seems eager to make up for it this time around, but could put on much better performances on the pitch to be more convincing about it.
The sides have put forth almost identical stats, and as a result, is next to each other on the table.
One thing to be noted from this peculiar situation is, with similar kind of displays, the home advantage appears to be a big factor in determining the outcomes of their ties, and in that regards, Nimes will be dealing with steep odds this match-day.

Montpellier vs Nimes Prediction
Since December of last year, the Crocodiles have registered just two wins on the road, and in the process have gone through separate four-game, and five-game losing runs away from home. At present, they are on a five-tie winless run on the road and is in fact completely winless in the league this season with the away handicap.
On the other hand, Montpellier has lost just twice in front of the home crowd in 2019, and at present is on a two-game winning run. Moreover, they hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent at home and have never failed to find the back of the net against them here.
Taking these overwhelming stats in favor of the hosts into account, the top pick is easily backing them for a great performance.
