Nimes vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 3rd February 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes have done very well this season although with a little more consistency they could be much higher than 11th. Recent form is quite erratic, and they lost their last game against Nice 2-0, they will be happy to return home.
Nimes have beaten the likes of Angers and Nantes at home recently and while they remain quite unpredictable at least they are happy to risk some of their game and play two players up front, they are able to score goals and give many attacking plays, but they remain too cautious on the road. Still they are having a very good season being back in Ligue 1.
Montpellier’s agenda is a little different as they are in 6th place and are only 2 points behind 4th and Saint Etienne. The club from the south have had a very solid season and they come into this game having lost just 1 match from their past five encounters. The clubs last win came against Caen in a 2-0 victory.

Nimes vs Montpellier: Prediction
Nimes can be very positive at home which can lead to fast paced games and entertaining ones. They are facing a quality team in Montpellier and will have to be at their strongest even to get a draw.
Montpellier’s away form is key where they haven’t been spectacular but at the same time have lost just two times this season on the road. Montpellier have a team to expose Nimes weaknesses and must be favourites to win this match.
