Nice vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 8th February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera.

Nice drew 1-1 with Reims in midweek but they were winning 1-0 for the majority of the game and the draw would have felt like a body blow as they try and move up the table.

They are currently 8th with 33 points and just 4 points from 4th place. Form is good and the club have not lost a game in over 2 months. At home they have become a real force winning 4 from their last 5 games with their last game ending in an impressive 2-1 win against Lyon.

Nimes are in 18th and so really need something from this game. They hae stepped up in recent weeks and won their last two games in a row. In midweek they beat Dijon 2-0. Their last two wins did both come at home though. On the road the club have suffered and have yet to win a game this season. They have lost 7 of their 11 matches and are conceding 2 goals per game on average and have only been able to score 7 goals.

Nice vs Nimes: Head to Head

  • Last season Nice won this game 2-0.
  • Nice have won the last 3 meetings.
  • Nimes have not beaten Nice away from home since 2000.

Nice vs Nimes: Prediction

Nice are a really good price to win this game. They have a good record over Nimes and are in very good form unbeaten for so long.

Kasper Dolberg, their striker is good value to score, there were doubts over an injury but he should be fine to play and has scored a few goals lately.

Maybe a shock is on the cards but we have to say there looks like being a lot of value on getting on the home win at the weekend and that is exactly what we are going to choose here.

Nice vs Nimes: Bet Tips

  • Nice to beat Nimes at 1.91 (10/11)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Kasper Dolberg (Nice) at 2.80 (9/5).
