Nimes host Amiens at the Stade des Costieres on Saturday night, with the hosts looking to build on their recent Ligue 1 triumph. Nimes won 1-0 away at Strasbourg last weekend, with Herve Lybohy scoring the winner in the last 20 minutes of the game. Amiens, on the other hand, threw away a one-goal lead following Bakaye Dibassy’s early strike to succumb to a 1-3 home loss against Marseille.

Betting Tips for the game
Nimes have won three of their last four competitive fixtures. They are currently on a two-game winning run, including a penalty-shootout victory against St. Etienne in their Coupe de la Ligue midweek tie. Regarding their Ligue 1 campaign, Nimes sit comfortably 11th in the standings, five points clear of the drop zone. At home, Nimes are winless in five league fixtures, but three of these have ended in draws.
Amiens, on the flip side, have alternated victories with defeats of late. They have lost six and won four of their last ten competitive games, and enter the fray on the back of a 1-3 home loss against Marseille. Away from home, Amiens have only won two of their last ten competitive trips. The good thing is that they managed to win at Toulouse in their most recent league trip.
Although Nimes have endured a sloppy run of form at home, they are the in-form team in this tie and should be able to grab a victory here. Our betting tips and predictions fancies Nimes to win at odds 2.00.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
We can’t see too many goals in this one as Nimes’ defence has been solid at home, while Amiens’ attack has been inefficient. In addition, three of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen under 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.72.

First Goalscorer odds
In terms of the first goalscorer bet for this clash, it’s kind of tricky but we think that Denis Bouanga can get back to goalscoring ways here. He has been pretty quiet in Ligue 1 of late, but he is still leading Amiens’ goalscoring charts with three goals under his belt. In addition, he got on the scoresheet in Nimes’ win over St. Etienne in Coupe de la Ligue in midweek. Our first goalscorer prediction is Denis Bouanga at odds 15.00.
