Nimes vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 7th February 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes are bottom of Ligue 1 and in an odd position because they looked doomed to be relegated but at the same time if they were to win 2 games they could be out of trouble.
The problem for Nimes is that they have only won 4 games all season and have lost 4 of their last five coming into this game. In midweek defeat number 15 was handed out as they lost 3-0 against PSG, though that defeat was expected and it was away from home.
In their own stadium Nimes have been poor still with just one victory and they have lost 80% of their games. Scoring just 9 goals the club are on average shipping over 2 goals per game. Nimes last home game ended in a 1-0 defeat to Lille.
Monaco will be the big favourites to win this game on Sunday. They are in brilliant form and if we look at their last 5 games they have won them all.
The club are fresh off winning the local derby beating Nice 2-1 and there are goals all over the side. Monaco can’t move up to 3rd place but they could join PSG on the same points and really apply the pressure on the top two sides.
Nimes vs Monaco: Head to Head
- Last season Nimes beat Monaco in this fixture 3-1.
- Monaco played Nimes only in November and beat them 3-0.
- Wissam Ben Yedder has scored 2 goals against Nice in the clubs last 3 meetings.
Nimes vs Monaco: Prediction
Wissam Ben Yedder for Monaco has not been as prolific as one might expect this season but he scored in midweek and for a striker it is all about getting a goal to get the confidence back and everything else seems easy.
He has a decent recent record over Nimes and we will back him to score anytime. Monaco should win this match and we do not expect to see a surprise result not the form they are in.
The problem is that Monaco are around 1.30 so no value for us. The handicap is no good too because to Nimes credit they are not conceding many goals at home to the good teams. So we will back the visitors to be leading the game at half time.
