Nimes vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.
Bottom place will play 2nd and Nimes will be the huge outsiders to win this game even if they are at home.
Nimes have 12 points and are 24 points behind their visitors and in midweek they lost their 12th game of the season. It wasn’t just any loss it was by 5-0 as Strasbourg destroyed them. Nimes have lost 2 games in a row coming into this one.
Nimes have not won a game since the end of November and have lost their last 5 home games in a row.
Lille should have few problems in this match but they will be feeling out of sorts after losing their first home game of the season in midweek. It came against Angers in a surprise 2-1 defeat.
Lille have slipped to 3rd place with 36 points but have the same points as 2nd placed PSG and are just 3 points behind Lyon. Victory at the weekend could have Lille right back in the mix, defeat would raise questions.
Away from home Lille have lost only once and have won their last 2 games in a row beating Montpellier and Dijon.
Nimes vs Lille Head to Head
The clubs haven’t played here since 2018 when Lille won 3-2.
The last match played between the sides was in October of 2019 when at Lille the match finished 2-2.
They have only played each other 4 times in the recent period and there is a 100% success rate to see over 2.5 goals.
Nimes vs Lille Prediction
Our first choice will be to see the 100% success rate of 3 goals or more continue. This is because Nimes are a poor side but also because Lille will be like a wounded animal out to avenge their latest defeat and get back on track.
Lille need to win this game but also put in a performance and they will be encouraged that Strasbourg found five goals against Nimes in the last game.
So we will back the away victory and also to see Lille score a few goals and come away with a commanding win.
