Nimes vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.
Nimes finished 18th and just survived from the skin of their teeth to use an old saying. The club can play some very good attacking football but in their 2nd season in the top flight they were found out and teams were able to predict their play.
This season Nimes need to have a plan b if they are going to be competitive and stay up.
Nimes had a very poor pre-season where they managed just 4 games and lost 3 of them. The other match ended in a 1-1 draw away to Rodez. Nimes last pre-season game was against Marseille at home which they lost 1-0.
Brest showed some great qualities last season and for them it was all about their home form which ended up keeping them up. They did fall to 14th place though and will be aware of the pitfalls of the season.
Brest only lost 1 pre-season game and pulled off some very good results including wins over Guingamp and more impressively beating Lille away. They did lose at home against Rennes though.

Nimes vs Brest: Prediction
Nimes have the better over Brest and we think they can get a win here too. They have showed some encouraging signs and they need to start their campaign off in positive fashion.
For Brest they hate playing Nimes that is evident and really they are a team based on their home form, so this should be a difficult trip it’s also a long one, the other side of France for them. Nimes have the quality to get a narrow win in this game.
