Nantes vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 30th August 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.
Nantes started their campaign last week with a 0-0 draw at Bordeaux. That was on the face of it a decent point for the club away from home. However for the majority of the game Bordeaux played with 10 men after having a player sent off and Nantes wasted some good chances to get the win.
This game against Nimes marks the first home game of the season for Nantes.
Nimes found themselves top of the league after the 1st round of games as they got the highest scored. The club were fantastic in beating Brest 4-0. It was the perfect start for them and they will want to do everything in their power to continue that.
Four different players got the goals for Nimes and they had 17 chances on goal. It is this type of exciting play that was missing last season for Nimes and many will be watching this game hoping that last week wasn’t a one off.

Nantes vs Nimes: Prediction
So we have a team in Nantes that couldn’t score against 10 men Bordeaux and a team in Nimes that have scored 4 goals already. But Nantes away will not be an easy game however Nimes will have fond memories of coming here and getting a good win.
This is a difficult game to call but we are going to put a little faith in the home side to get a win. Nantes need to improve over last weekend and Nimes could be a side that shine at home but fail away. At the same time because this is the beginning of the season act with caution on your risk stake.
For good value we will also back the correct score.
