Saint-Etienne vs Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th December 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard (Saint Etienne).
Finally a win has come from Saint Etienne after a very poor patch of form and last weekend they were able to beat Bordeaux away from home 2-1.
Saint Etienne are still in danger in 14th place but will be hoping that a taste of victory will see them try to put some wins together. In truth the club had been putting some draws in and had improved over the last few weeks and the fans will be hoping that they have now turned a corner.
Home form is not good for Saint Etienne who have only won 2 matches from the seven played so far although their last two home games have ended in draws.
Nimes come into this encounter in 19th place and their defeat against Nice at the weekend was the clubs 4th in a row. They have now lost 10 games overall from 15 played.
Still with 11 points Nimes could escape the bottom three with a win depending on results around them. However the club has lost their last 2 away matches, their last one being a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Lorient.

Saint-Etienne vs Nimes Prediction
On the face of it we are looking at two teams who could do much better than they have been performing, but have been fairly poor this season overall.
The good news seems to lie with Saint Etienne when after a good start they faded but they seem to be recapturing some form now and should be backed to win this game.
Not only is Saint Etienne at home but they have a good recent record over Nimes too and Nimes do not like travelling to this stadium. On paper this match looks good for a solid home victory and that is what we will be backing.
