Nimes vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 20th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes lost 2-1 against Marseille last weekend which ended a 2 game winning streak and this match will be the last roll of the dice for the club to try and finish in a European place. The chance is already very slim but a 5th place opens up for Europe they still have a chance.
Whatever happenes this season Nimes have had a terrific one considering they were one of the favourites to be relegated and having acquired 43 points and in 10th place this has been a successful season for them.
The club have lost just 4 games at home this season and recent form in front of their own fans has been very solid having gained 11 points from their last 15.
Bordeaux are in 13th place with 38 points, and while they are more than safe this season they are too far off the pace to finish in a European spot. Their last game ended in a one sided 3-0 defeat at Saint Etienne.
Away from home they have the 3rd worst record in the league where they have lost 9 from 16 games and won just 2 all season. They have scored just 8 goals on the road.
Nimes vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
The teams have only met once in recent history which was earlier in the season and the match ended 3-3 at Bordeaux.
Nimes vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Nimes have more to play for than their opponents and we should expect them to start the brighter. But if they struggle to score then frustration can set in and this match could end up being more difficult than they think.
At the same time Bordeaux’s away form is very poor whilst Nimes have become difficult to beat at home. We are expecting goals from two teams whose defences can be leaky, and have set out the following tips below to gain maximum value.
