Montpellier vs Nimes French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Montpellier vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 30th September 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier).

Montpellier are unbeaten for 6 games and in midweek they were involved in a 2-2 draw with Caen. They come into this game in 5th place and are only 1 point behind 2nd place Lyon so they can really make a splash with a win this weekend.

At Stade de la Mosson they are unbeaten in 3 games though two of those ended in draws. Their last game here finished in a win over Nice that ended 1-0 and it was an impressive result given that Nice have improved in recent weeks.

Nimes have been exciting this season but sometimes they can show how naive they are and whilst they look good attacking they have let in goals in defence. It was a real surprise in midweek to see that Nimes could not even score against the worst team in Ligue 1 currently Guingamp and that match ended 0-0. This result means that Nimes have drawn in their last 3 games. Away from home Nimes have not won for 3 games going back to their opening match.

Montpellier vs Nimes: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met at this stadium the game finished 1-1.
  • The teams have only met two times in the past decade and both times both teams scored.

Montpellier vs Nimes: Prediction

Nimes got a wakeup call in midweek and they were shut out by Guingamp at home. Montpellier have the skill, quality and experience to get a result in this match at home.

We expect a few goals as tactics could go out the window and gaps should appear as the game goes on but our main tip will be to see the home side get the win and all three points. We will also back 3 or more goals to be scored.

Montpellier vs Nimes: Bet Tips

  • Montpellier to beat Nimes at 1.91 (10/11)
