Nimes vs Caen
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes have not won in 4 games but at the same time they are very safe this season and come into this game in 12th place with 37 points.
Their latest loss was at Saint Etienne and the game finished 2-1 and even though the club are safe there should be concerns about their lack of form.
However the good news for Nimes is that at home they remain fairly solid and they have gone the last 4 games in a row without a loss. Their last match at home ended in a 2-2 draw with Strasbourg.
Caen are in 18th and are 7 points from safety which looks like they could be playing Ligue 1 football next season. At the same time however against all of the odds the club beat Monaco away from home 1-0 in their last game and they will want to carry that self belief into this game, the question is can they?
The Monaco win stopped a 3 game losing streak and the away win was only Caen’s 2nd of the season. In general they have been poor on the road. They have lost 7 games from 15 played.

Nimes vs Caen: Prediction
Caen showed a lot of heart in their Monaco win but we have to remember how poor they have been on the road. Nimes are not really playing for much but are quite strong at home and should be able to obtain Caen.
We think this will be a very close game and could well be decided by one goal but our pick here is to go for the home win.
If Caen had been the home side we would back them, but simply put they have been too poor on the road.
