Nimes vs Guingamp
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 26th September 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes continue to impress and last weekend they went to Stade Louis II and drew 1-1 with the 2017 champions Monaco. Nime’s success is built on attack minded play and it has taken the Ligue 1 teams by surprise. The club are in a good moment and will realise that their game plan and tactics will be found out later as the season goes on so they need to get as many points as possible at this stage of the season.
Nimes are in 10th place and have 8 points and have scored 13 goals, although they have conceded the same. At home Nimes have already had to play two top sides in Marseille and PSG and beat Marseille. Even though they lost to PSG they still gave them a game before losing 4-2.
Guingamp have lost all 6 games of the opening campaign and already looked doomed. Their latest loss just seemed to turn the screw even more when they lost at home 3-1 to Bordeaux. Manager Antoine Kombouare is under real pressure and is likely to be sacked soon if his team’s poor form continues. This is an extremely difficult game for the visitors and they won’t be expected to win it.
Nimes vs Guingamp: Head to Head
- The teams have not played at this ground in 6 years where Nimes won 2-1.
- Nimes have won the last 3 fixtures played at home.
- Guingamp won the last match 3-0 which took place at their ground in 2013.
Nimes vs Guingamp: Prediction
The way Nimes have started makes us feel positive we will see a home win and also we should see some goals.
Nimes like to entertain their fans and Guingamp could become spectators. They are a shadow of the team that were guaranteed mid table status last season.
Our main bet will be to see Nimes win and see them score at least 2 goals. They have the quality and desire to create many chances and cause the away side too many problems with their pace.
