Nimes vs Saint-Etienne
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 29th September 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres.
Nimes are in 12th place and their objective this season will be to spend another one in Ligue 1 after their impressive showing the season before.
In midweek they lost to Montpellier 1-0 and form has been decent as that defeat was their first in 4 games. But the reason Nimes are not higher in the league is because they are already drawing too many games.
Nimes have already beaten Brest and Toulouse at home and come into this home match winning two in a row here.
Saint Etienne will be wondering where it all has gone wrong from last season. They are in 19th place and have lost 4 of their 7 games so far and won just once. They lost at home 1-0 to Metz in midweek and it has been a real struggle for a club who were so solid in the league last season.
The club have lost 4 of their last five games and this is worrying times as they are also shipping goals, so far it is almost 2 a game.

Nimes vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Nimes must be the favourites to win this match, these are troubled times for a great club like Saint Etienne and even in history they don’t get good results against Nimes. We will back the home side to get the points in this game and will also back the correct score for small stakes.
These fixtures can get physical and it might be worth backing the market to see a sending off in this game which really could boil over. Saint Etienne will be defending deep and maybe hoping to come away with a point, but Nimes have a decent home record and need to move up the table too.
