Nimes vs Lens
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 27th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.
Nimes have already had an up and down season and we are only 4 games in. They started the campaign with a win, then lost their following two games and then, in their last match, they were able to draw with Lyon as the game ended 0-0. Given that this clash was an away game that was a highly impressive result for the club.
Nimes are in 15th place with 4 points but a win could take the club into the top 10. What has been encouraging for the club is that they are scoring goals, history tells us teams that are low in the league but scoring goals usually have a great chance to survive the season.
Lens have been the real surprise package of the season so far. They come into this game in 4th place. Whilst they lost their first game of the season they have gone on to win their next 3 in a row. Their last win was against Bordeaux, they have beaten Lorient away from home but also lost to Nice on the road. Like Nimes the club are scoring goals and have seven so far.
Nimes vs Lens: Head to Head
The last time the clubs met at this stadium was in 2018 when Lens won 1-0.
Nimes have only beaten Lens once when at home in the last six attempts.
However Nimes were at home when the teams played each other in the Coupe de la Ligue in 2019 which they won 3-0.
Nimes vs Lens: Prediction
Both teams are equal and Nimes will need to find their way in the league quick if they are to survive.
Lens come here with a lot of confidence and we are going to back them to win but on the handicap so that will cover the draw for us. For smaller stakes we will also back the correct score.
These are two teams used to scoring goals and so we could witness an entertaining game of football with plenty of chances.
