Nimes vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 2nd November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).

Nimes are in need of 3 points and come into this game in 18th place with 11 points. They have drawn their last 3 games in a row. Last weekend they drew 0-0 at Reims, but were probably the better side and also had a goal disallowed.

They will be happy to return home where they will be eyeing a win here. They have won two times at home so far from five games but their last victory here was five weeks ago. Their last two matches at home have seen the club lose to Saint Etienne and draw against Nimes.

Rennes are in 8th place and are 4 points in front of their hosts. A thrilling 3-2 victory over Toulouse last weekend ended a 4 game streak of no wins. Form has been poor where the club would be in 17th place based on it and their away record is average with 8 points won from 18. But the club have not recorded a victory on the road since the end of September when they beat Strasbourg 2-0.

Nimes vs Rennes: Head to Head

  • Last season this fixture ended 3-1 to Nimes.
  • The teams have only met twice in recent history, with Nimes winning 3-1 and Rennes winning 4-0.
  • In recent games there is a 100% success rate to see over 3.5 goals.

Nimes vs Rennes: Prediction

We will back the home side to get a win, they haven’t been good this season but they have showed some promise in recent games and remain unbeaten in their last 3, they have just been unlucky and that could be set to change against Rennes at home who on form look like relegation material.

We will also back the correct score at full time for smaller stakes. This will be a close game and we do not expect history to repeat goals wise where there has been quite a few. The club have not played each other too many times in their history, and so there isn’t really a pattern to go with here.

Nimes vs Rennes: Bet Tips:

  • Nimes to beat Rennes at 2.50 (6/4)
  • Correct Score: Nimes to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 8.00 (7/1) and 12.00 (11/1)
