Nimes vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 13th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.
Nimes have played two games so far into the new season and are in 8th place. They have beaten Brest 4-0 and then lost 2-1 away to Nantes.
The club were superb in their home game against Brest and reminded everyone of their first season in Ligue 1 when they were very difficult to beat at home, and they will fancy their chances against Rennes this weekend.
Rennes of course are a quality side and are unbeaten after their first two games. They were able to go away to Lille on the opening weekend and claim a 1-1 draw. This was followed up by a 2-1 home win against Montpellier.
Rennes could go top of the league if Nice were to lose, but could at least go to 2nd so there is a lot to play for.
Nimes vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-0 to Rennes.

- There is a 75% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Nimes vs Rennes: Prediction
Even though Rennes have the best of Nimes in recent games we only have to go back to 2019 and the game here ended in Nimes favour when they won 3-1.
Nimes are strong at home and we shouldn’t presume they will cave in even if Rennes does have the better squad. But we are tempted to back the home side here.
We also expect to see goals, Nimes have goals in them and so do Rennes and if Nimes are able to get an advantage in the game Rennes are going to have their chances and history says there are a lot of goals in these games.
Nimes vs Rennes: Bet Tips:
Nimes to beat Rennes at 3.25 (9/4)
Over 2.5 goals at 2.25 (5/4).
