Nimes are 11th in the table with 5 defeats and 4 wins in the league. They have 17 points and are equal with Nantes and Rennes. A win would send them to top 10 of the league most probably.

In the last 5 competitive matches, they won 3 and lost only once. All but one of those had a final score with less than 2.5 goals. After a 4 match winless streak in all competitions, they won a game in the Cup in extra time. In 4 of those recent 5 home games, 4 had under 2.5 goals at the finals whistle.

The visitors are worse than their opponents for Saturday. They lost 9 of their 14 matches and won only 4 in the process. The main factor for this large number of defeats is their poor defense. Their defenders had given away a whopping 24 goals already in the league. It is clear without saying that this is one of the worst defenses in the league.

They have been losing matches at regular intervals. Two wins are sandwiched between 3 losses in their last 5 matches across all venues. From those games, about 3 games had more than 2.5 goals scored in total at the final whistle.

Amiens is fresh from an away win against Toulouse. That 1-0 win is one of the 2 wins they have from the last 5 matches on the road. All the remaining matches were defeats and they don’t have a clean sheet in 4 of their last 5 as well.

Amiens is 16th in the league table and a win is necessary for them after a series of losses.

Nimes vs Amiens: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both sides have 2 wins each in the last 5 h2h games across all venues.
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches.
  • From the recent 5 h2h played at the home of Nimes, both teams have 1 win each.
  • Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of those matches played here.

Nimes vs Amiens: Prediction

Both these sides are good at leaving their defenses open. But when it comes to scoring they lack sharpness at the final third. So when we consider the final scores in 3 of the last 5 h2h matches at this ground, I think this will be a low scoring affair. Thus a bet can be placed on a score with fewer than 2.5 goals with 1.73 odd.

Weak defense means more chances for the opponent stikers. The team with the best attack may emerge victoriously. So a bet can be placed on both teams to score with 1.90 odd.

Nimes vs Amiens: Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.73 (8/11).
  • Both teams to score @ 1.90 (9/10).
