Meanwhile, Nice beat Amiens 1-0 at home thanks to an own-goal from Prince-Desir Gouano. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Nimes were on a nine-game winless streak in Ligue 1 prior to their 0-4 away win at Dijon last weekend. That was only their third victory of this Ligue 1 campaign, but they find themselves in a comfortable 13th spot in the standings, just three points behind their Saturday’s opponents. In addition, they have been a tough nut to crack on home soil so far this season, having lost just once in five league fixtures.
Nice, on the flip side, have been up and down throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, but they have finally found some consistency of late. They come into this clash on the back of a three-game winning streak across all competitions, including a 3-2 win over Auxerre in Coupe de la Ligue two weeks ago. Furthermore, Nice have suffered just one defeat on the road throughout this Ligue 1 campaign.
Nice looked strong recently, but Nimes have been a good side on home soil this season. It’s difficult to separate these two sides at the moment, so our betting tips and predictions expect a draw at odds 3.20.
