Strasbourg vs Nimes
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Le Racing is in good form right now. They are unbeaten in the last 7 competitive matches of which they won 3. This newfound form has placed them inside the top ten in the table. After 13 rounds played they have 4 wins and 3 defeats, and they tend to draw more matches. The team from Alsace has scored a total of 20 league goals from those matches and conceded 16 in return.
In their last league game, they held Lille draw, whom they defeated in a cup game a month ago. But last 3 of their games ended as a draw. So they are losing valuable points because of their inability to score against quality defenses. Under 2.5 goals came in the 4 of the last 5 matches they played across all competitions.
The team managed by Thierry Laurey had a 4 game winning streak at home in all competitions which ended with a draw to Toulouse in round 12. But still, they are unbeaten which will be crucial towards the end of the season. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of the last 5 home games.
Nimes has been inconsistent this season. They are finding it difficult to win in Ligue 1 after being promoted this season. They have won 3 matches, but have 5 draws and losses each which clearly explains the latter statement. Also, they have conceded 20 goals which are more than what they scored.
The Les Crocodiles have only 1 win in the last 6 matches but have no points in 3 matches in that period. After a 5 game winless run in away matches, they won against a relegation placed Dijon in the last match. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 games on the road.
So this is the first time they will face each other in the top tier of French football, and the match will be closely contested as there are only 4 points between them.

Strasbourg vs Nimes: Prediction
The hosts are unbeaten in the 5 games prior to this match. When we look into the h2h stats in this ground, the hosts are unbeaten with 2 wins included. So on the back of their unbeaten run, I can’t see the visitors winning this match. The closest they can do is a draw. So we can bet on the home team to win with 1.50 odd.
The hosts have never failed to score at home this season. Both teams have scored in 7 of the recent 10 matches at their home. Nimes has also found the net in 3 of the last 5 away matches. So it is possible that both the teams will score on Saturday too. Thus we can bet on both the teams to score with1.85 odd.
