Nimes v Nice
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 17th August 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes)
Nimes were very exciting last season and it will be fascinating to see what the club can achieve this season. Nimes were unlucky to have to play champions PSG in Paris on the opening day of the season and they inevitably lost the game 3-0.
But that match isn’t going to affect them too much as they would have known how hard it would have been to get a result in Paris. Nimes then will focus on this game but on paper it does look hard.
Nice had a poor pre-season but they have started the season off very well. Last weekend they beat Amiens 2-1 at home which was expected but it was still a good result as coach Patrick Vieira has had to see some quality leave the team.
Nice’s aim this season will be to qualify for European football, they almost did last season but then fell off in the last couple of months.
Nimes v Nice: Head to Head
The teams have only played each other two times in recent years where Nice won both games.
The last time they played each other at Nimes Nice won 1-0.
Nimes v Nice: Prediction
Nice played some attractive attacking football in their last match and if they can replicate that then this match could be very difficult for Nimes. But at the same time we don’t expect Nimes to just lie down and they will find some good opportunities too and this is why this game has the potential to be exciting and thrilling with lots of goal mouth opportunities.
Our main bet here is to see Nice come out as victors though but also back the goals markets and for smaller stakes the correct score.
