Nimes vs Toulouse
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th January 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade des Costieres (Nimes).
Nimes come into this game in 11th place and even though they have had ups and downs they have to be happy this season overall with their performance after coming up from Ligue 2.
Nimes beat Nantes in midweek winning 1-0 and now they have the second opportunity to stay at home and try to get another three points when they take on Toulouse.
The club have won 9 points from their last 15 and at home from 9 games they have won 3, drawn 3 and lost 3, so are quite unpredictable although they have lost just 30% of their games at home so far.
Toulouse are in 14th place and four points behind their hosts, so they could slip as much as 7 points behind or if they win just be a single point in it. They drew 2-2 at home to 3rd place Lyon and this was seen as a good result for them.
Away from home they have won just 30% of their games and remain inconsistent. Although they have won 2 of their last 3 games on the road and overall their away form has vastly improved.

Nimes vs Toulouse: Prediction
Given the history it is worth one of our selections to see under 2.5 goals. As for the game we believe that Nimes have come a long way and these two home games in a row are very important to them. They have won one of the games against a tough opponent like Nantes and so the thinking has to be to win this one too against a team who have not been as strong as them this season.
