Nimes vs Nantes Prediction & Match Preview

Nimes vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th February 2021
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.

Nimes have been one of the best in form sides in Ligue 1 and have climbed to 17th place and out of the relegation zone after winning their last 3 games in a row.

In midweek they beat fellow strugglers Lorient. The only problem for Nimes is that they were so far back that even winning 3 games in a row means that they are just 1 point from the danger zone again.

Even a win at the weekend would not improve Nimes position because they are 5 points behind 16th placed Nice. But of course it would be very much welcomed.

Nantes are in 18th a disaster for this club with such a rich history but win this and they will be out of the bottom three. The club have showed some fight in recent weeks and last weekend they drew with Marseille.

Away from home Nantes has just 2 wins this season but form has improved slightly and they have earned 5 points from their last 12, which for Nantes’ standards this season is a decent return.

Nimes vs Nantes: Prediction

In their last game Nimes had to prove themselves by beating Lorient a team who are a direct rival to them and now they have to do it all over again. But do so and Nimes would take a huge step in the right direction to survive this season.

We can expect a close game and both teams will test each other out but we will take some risks here with an open market.

Nantes have stepped up their training and know that this is the business end of the season where they have to start performing and they have some good recent results over Nantes so we will choose for them to be winning at half time as our main choice.
