Nimes vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costières (Nîmes).
Despite enjoying a top ten finish in their previous campaign, Nimes have got off to a poor start in the new season, and are at the moment winless in their last three games in a row. The squad managed to bring their two-match losing streak to a halt though, last week, by sharing the spoils with Monaco in a 2-2 draw on the road.
Brest, on the other hand, have been on the go since their return to the top flight and are currently unbeaten in their respective clashes. The away side picked up their first win in their most recent fixture with Reims at home and will be hoping to record back to back victories when they make the trip to Nimes on Sunday.
However, the clash will not be a walk in the park for Brest as the hosts have been a confident bunch in their games on home soil.
Nimes vs Brest Head to head (h2h)

- The scores have been tied thrice in their previous ten matchups.
Nimes vs Brest Prediction
The home team have been at the receiving end of seven goals so far and have managed to retaliate with just three of their own. Moreover, Nimes have picked up the win just once in their last three home games and were far from convincing in their last clash against Nice, which they lost by a 2-1 scorecard.
The visitors had the third-best away record in Ligue 2 and have already avoided defeat in their last trip on the road. It also needs mentioning that Brest have either won or forced Nimes to share the spoils in three of their previous six visits to this stadium.
Taking into account that the away side have not been at the losing end in their clashes so far either, you can certainly count on Brest to at least hold Nimes to a draw, if not pick up the win.
Half of their previous four matchups between each other here have seen both sides get their names on the scoresheet. Considering that the two teams have also scored a goal or more in the last two matches as well, you can rule out either side walking away with a clean sheet in this one.
