Nimes vs Strasbourg
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 16th March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes)
10th v 11th at the weekend and this could be quite a battle two teams who have really punched above their weight this season.
Nimes are two points behind the visitors and it looks like they could miss out on a European place with so many teams involved, this game will go long way to seeing if it is still possible but they only have 36 points coming into the weekend.
Nimes have lost 2 games in a row but at home they have gone their last 3 games unbeaten which could be good news for them. Their last home game ended in a 2-0 win over Dijon.
Strasbourg have no wins in their last five games as they have seen their early season form fall apart. They have recorded no less than 3 draws in those matches and have lost their midas touch.
Strasbourg does have the 6th best away record but again recent form has let them down and they come here with no wins on the road for the past 3 games.
Nimes vs Strasbourg: Head to Head

Nimes v Strasbourg: Prediction
We are going to back the away side to get all three points. Even though form is not good the players and managers have had clear the air talks and put in extra training shifts and they have travelled to Nimes a few days ahead of the game, they seem prepared.
There is still a chance that Strasbourg can threaten the top 6 teams and try to get a European place. This is a game where they can kick start their season once again. We don’t expect to see an exciting match and most will be played in midfield this is where the battle will be.
