Nimes vs Reims
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).

Nimes and Reims both promoted from Ligue 2 will come together for this game which on paper could be very exciting as the former Ligue 2 sides go in search of some bragging rights.

Nimes have been the more exciting of the two teams and yet they both share the same points of having 9 so far this season. But Nimes have been full of goals and have 13 so far which is 9 more than Reims.

After their great start to the season Nimes have gone the last 5 games without a win picking up just 3 points from their last possible 15. Their last home game ended in a disappointing 0-0 result with Guingamp who are bottom of the league.

Reims have the same record as Nimes with no wins in their last 5 and their season has been dominated by draws. They have 1 away win this season but have not won on the road since August. The worrying aspect for Reims is that they are not scoring goals. They have scored just 1 goal since the end of August and have 4 overall which is the worst record in the league.

Nimes vs Reims: Head to Head

  • Last season Reims won this fixture 1-0.
  • Based on recent matches 70% of their games have ended in draws.
  • There is a 60% chance to see both teams to score.

Nimes vs Reims: Prediction

The problem for Reims is where are their goals going to come from? It’s incredible to think that they only have 4 so far this season and that could mean they will have relegation worries later in the season.

As for Nimes they have been free scoring and if they can find their scoring boots they should be able to get a win here. But both sides are in very poor form and Reims may just have that small psychological advantage over Nimes given how they ran away with the Ligue 2 title last season. We will opt for the away win but keep the stakes at medium level.

Nimes vs Reims: Bet Tips

  • Reims to beat Nimes at 3.25 (9/4)
  • Correct Score: Reims to win 1-0 at 9.00 (8/1).
