Reims vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 22nd November 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Reims had started the season as if they were determined to be playing Ligue 2 football next season. However before the break the club got their act together and have improved greatly.
This improvement has seen Reims go their last 3 games undefeated and their last result ended in a classic 4-4 draw at Lens. Reims are in 16th place after their slow start but on recent form the club would be in seventh.
At home Reims have the 2nd to worst record in Ligue 1 earning just 3 points from a possible 12. The good news is that they won their last home game this came against Strasbourg in a 2-1 victory.
Nimes are in 18th placed and need the win and they would go 2 points above Reims with victory. The problem Nimes have is that they have lost their last 4 games in a row. This of course happened before the international break, and now it is about starting with a clean slate and trying to move on again. This has to be the objective for the club.

Reims vs Nimes: Prediction
Over the last few years Reims have had a better squad overall than Nimes but Nimes remains a team that seem to get a result over Reims.
In this sense the best choice here strikes us as backing the double chance for Nimes, so a draw would cover our choice. It is true that Reims have the form but we shouldn’t dispel history that says Nimes have such a good record over Reims. The players will know this and this could be a good chance to get out of the relegation zone for the away side.
We will also back the half time correct score of 0-0 as we believe this could be a slow starting game. Nimes have to keep it tight in defence if they will have any chance to walk away with some points at the weekend.
