Nimes will be looking to being their Ligue 1 adventure in winning fashion when they travel to the Stade Raymond-Kopa to take on Angers on Saturday evening. Angers haven’t had such a great Ligue 1 campaign last season, but they still finished 14th in the standings, four points clear of the drop zone. Meanwhile, Nimes finished as runners-up to Reims in Ligue 2 last season, but that was enough for them to book their place in Ligue 1. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Angers’ form in pre-season has been terrible, as they have failed to win any of their six friendlies. Actually, Angers have won just two of their last 15 games over the past five months. At home, Angers have only lost three of their last 12 games across all competitions, but they are winless in eight fixtures at the moment in time.
Meanwhile, Nimes have been in sublime form over the past five months. They have secured promotion from Ligue 2 at the end of the previous season and they have also enjoyed a great run of form in pre-season. Nimes have suffered just one defeat in seven friendlies, while winning four.
Although Angers haven’t enjoyed a prolific pre-season campaign, but they still have a better squad than Nimes and they have also won the most recent two meetings between them. Our betting tips and predictions expect Angers to win at odds 2.25 with 1XBet.

Angers have endured a terrible run of form in pre-season, but they should be able to start the new Ligue 1 campaign in a similar manner as they did last season. They had a powerful start last term and they should be able to grab all three points against a Nimes side that will be playing their first Ligue 1 fixture. Our preview anticipate Angers to win at odds 2.25 with 1XBet.

First Goalscorer odds
Angers have sold their last season’s topscorer, Karl Toko Ekambi, to Villarreal for £16.2m, while Enzo Crivelli has also joined Caen for £2.7m. However, they brought in Stephane Bahoken from Strasbourg, who had a decent season last term. Our first goalscorer prediction is Stephane Bahoken at odds – with 1XBet.
