Strasbourg vs Nimes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau.
Strasbourg come into the game in 18th place and Nimes are bottom of the league, so this is an important fixture for both teams.
Strasbourg have poor form recently and have lost 3 of their last four games, last weekend they lost against Angers. At home the club would be in 8th place, so home form there isn’t too many problems and in fact they have won their last 3 games in a row.
Nimes are bottom with 11 points, but a win could take the club out of the bottom three. They are actually unbeaten in their last 3 matches, but they have all ended in draws. Nimes also have a game in hand as they didn’t play last weekend, so they have that advantage too over the bottom three clubs.
Nimes have picked up just 4 points from a possible 18 on the road and they are yet to win away from home. Indeed, this is a team that keep drawing and they have finished 70% of their games away from home with draws.
Strasbourg vs Nimes: Head to Head
- Last season Nimes came here and won 1-0.
- Strasbourg have not beaten Nimes at home since 2008.
- 5 from the last 6 meetings have seen both teams to score.
Strasbourg vs Nimes: Prediction
For the value we are going to back Nimes to get the win. They have a game in hand plus this match and could really use that to their advantage. They haven’t been very good this season, but we think they are in a false position and can finish higher up the table. Plus, they have a very good record of coming here and getting a result.
Strasbourg are very decent at home but are perhaps facing a team they just do not know how to historically beat here. We don’t expect a very good game of football and very few chances for both sides in a close encounter.
