Nimes vs Metz
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes come into this Saturday evening game in trouble as they are 20th and bottom of the league. Even a win could only take them to 18th but with the league so close all they would need would be back to back wins to be out of the relegation zone, can it start at the weekend?
The club have only won 2 games all season and have lost their last two games in a row. They have gained just 3 points from their last 15 available. At home is where the points have come and they have won 7 points from their total of 11 here. The good news for them is that they have lost just once from the past 4 games and their last match here ended in a 1-1 draw against Amiens.
Metz are joined in the relegation battle and are in 18th. A win here could take the club a couple of places up and would stretch their lead over Nimes to 6 points. The club are unbeaten in their last 3 games although these have all ended in draws. Their last game ended 1-1 v Reims. On the road Metz has a poor record with 4 defeats and just 1 win.

Nimes vs Metz: Prediction
Surprises and shocks happen in all football leagues every weekend and this time we think Metz the outsiders can surprise Nimes at very good odds.
The visitors are not to be taken lightly and if Nimes make this mistake because they have a decent history over them it could lead to some problems.
Metz are in decent form and we must remember that even though they are 18th they have lost just one game in the past five weeks.
So, we will back Metz to get the win here, with odds good value we will make this our only choice for this game.
