Nimes vs Dijon
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.

Nimes ended a 4 game losing streak by drawing at the weekend and the point was very welcomed. The club drew against Saint Etienne in a very thrilling match that finished 2-2.

However Nimes are still in trouble and come into this encounter in 18th place. However if they win this game and Strasbourg or Reims fail to win their respective matches then Nimes would over take them and be out of the bottom three.

Overall form is poor for Nimes but at home it is even worse and they have lost all of their last 5 games. Overall at home they have won just once and lost six from 8 games. They have conceded 19 goals at home so far.

Dijon are currently bottom of the league so this is a huge six pointer fixture and the club have just 9 points. Victory could see Dijon go into 19th place but they have just one win all season, though that did come away from home.

It is interesting because as poor as Dijon have been their away record is better than at home and they have gone their last 3 matches on the road without defeat. Their last away encounter ended in a 1-1 draw against Nantes.

Nimes vs Dijon: Head to Head

  • Last season Nimes beat Dijon 2-0.

Nimes vs Dijon: Prediction

What we have is two poor teams who have started the new campaign very slowly. But maybe we have to look at history to get value from this one.

Most bookmakers will be opting for a low scoring game because there isn’t much quality on view, history tells us there is a huge 50/50 chance to see 5 goals or more, that is an interesting statistic and it is something we should consider.

We will also opt to see the home win as Dijon has such a poor record here. Nimes need to take advantage that they are at home and try and earn 3 points which will feel like 20 to them in midweek if they can do it.

Nimes vs Dijon Betting Tips:

  • Nimes to beat Dijon at 2.50 (6/4)
  • Over 4.5 goals at 6.00 (5/1).
