Montpellier vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4 October 2020
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson.
Montpellier have started well in the league and they will believe they can continue this trend when they take on Nimes at home.
Montpellier come into this game in 3rd place and are currently on a 4 game unbeaten run, although their last match did end in a 2-2 draw away to Dijon, this was a game they were expected to win. Still the club are in a good position and are just three points from the top of the league.
Nimes have had it worse with just 1 win this season so far and a run of 4 games without a win. They have drawn their last two matches though against Lens and more impressively away to Lyon. A win could move the club up 3-4 places depending on other results but they will be the rank outsiders here. Plus their only win of the season has come at home.
Montpellier vs Nimes: Head to Head
Last season Montpellier won this fixture 1-0.
The clubs have only met each other five times in the last 12 years with Nimes managing just 1 win which was at home and that was back in 2009.
There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
The last time the clubs played at Stade de la Mosson there was a flurry of cards with a total of seven shown.
Montpellier vs Nimes: Prediction
Nimes are not in good form, have a poor record here and Montpellier have a superior team. Of all the Ligue 1 games this weekend this is the one where we feel sure this will be a home win.
Montpellier will feel disappointed to only draw 2-2 at Dijon last weekend and we think they will come out all guns blazing and get off to a quick start. This could be a very difficult afternoon for Nimes and Montpellier has the chance to record a very good victory.
