Nimes vs Lens Prediction
The Crocodiles will be aiming to qualify into the next round of the French League Cup against the likes of ‘Sang et Or’ at their home. Playing at home will be an added advantage for the hosting side other than their league supremacy over the visitor.
Since the host has lost only two home matches in the recent five ties in major competitions, they are well set at home against their foes. In the meantime, the visitors are unbeaten in the past four League 2 away fixtures. Even so, they have only two wins out of it and their last trip ended in a goalless draw with Nancy. Meanwhile, the home team has come out with a 1-1 draw from their previous role as a host against Amiens.
Even though, the hosting contingent is trailing in the relegation zone in this season after 11 league games so far. On the other hand, the traveling side is leading second in their league. Since their league is inferior to that of the host, there is very little chance to see them rise above the challenge.
As such, the host has more chance of winning the encounter probably with goals at both ends of the field.
