Nimes vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costières (Nîmes).
Les Crocodiles have been hunted without mercy in the recent weeks, in contrast to their nickname. After suffering five losses in their last six games, the team gets ready for a seventh time, in hope of easier foes.
Even worse has been the case of their opponents for this game, that they went through seven fixtures in a row before finally delivering a win for the fans.
Curiously, both these teams last won against Nantes, who lies in between them in league standings.
The Coupe de France campaign for both were nightmares, but Stephane Moulin’s men really did pull off something incredible by going out of the competition against Viry-Chatillon, a team from the sixth tier, whereas the Crocodiles were chased out by a squad from the third division, Lyon Duchere.

- Three of the last five matches saw Bernard Blaquart’s men winning.
- The last five games in a row saw over 2.5 match goals.
- At this venue, the hosts hold a lead of 7-4 in h2h wins.
- The team from Angers failed to score in two of their last four appearances at the Stade des Costières.
Nimes vs Angers Prediction
Either group is in desperate need for wins. They have been fed up with their performances in the recent weeks, and honestly, their fans deserve a hug, or at least a pat on their back for sticking up with their team.
The home advantage will come into play and probably play a decisive role in determining the result. Les Scoistes have failed to win a single game on the road stretching back to last October, and haven’t found the back of the net in an away game since the last week of November.
Though the team from Nimes have suffered a lot in their overall fixtures, they have been trying really hard and getting comparatively good results at home. I expect Bernard Blaquart to build from this and try to get a much-needed win. It will not be easy, but his players will get him a narrow win. I expect the score to be 1-0, in favor of the hosts.
