Reims vs Nimes Prediction

The hosts continued their winning form last week after they did just enough to secure a 1-0 win over Montpellier at home. David Guion’s men have now admitted defeat just once in their previous five clashes and have garnered a total of ten points from a possible fifteen. As of now, the home side are sitting third in the ladder, just seven points behind table-toppers PSG.

Nimes, on the other hand, are on a four-match winless run at the moment. Their last matchup on home soil saw them salvage no more than a point against Amiens. While on the road, they were forced to share the spoils with Lille. The guests have come out on top just twice in their campaign so far, and are deservedly dwelling in the relegation zone.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been a nervous bunch in their outings. They are yet to record a win away from home. Meanwhile, Reims have stumbled just once on home soil.

Furthermore, as far as head to head statistics at this venue go, the away side have secured the bragging rights just once in their last six trips here. With their current form on the road hardly showing any promise, Reims are the favorites to walk away with all three points in this one.

Additionally, the hosts have been resilient at the back in their clashes here and have kept a clean sheet in four of their previous five matchups. The visitors have hardly shown any conviction in the final third in their respective outings and have failed to find the back of the net in three of their previous five.

With half of their last four meetings at this stadium also witnessing fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on Reims to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
