Nimes host Reims at the Stade des Costieres on Saturday evening, with both sides looking to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track. Nimes were thrashed 3-0 on the road at Montpellier at the weekend despite the fact they had several goal attempts. On the flip side, Reims managed a 0-0 home draw against Bordeaux last time out in Ligue 1, but it has to be said that they failed to deliver a single shot on target. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Nimes did well to secure back-to-back wins in their first two games of this new Ligue 1 season, but they have failed to grab another victory since then. Nimes are winless in six league outings, losing three in the process. This leaves Nimes in 14th spot in the standings tied on nine points with their Saturday’s opponents. However, their home form over the past nine months have seen them lose just three of their last 15 games across all competitions.
Reims have enjoyed a similar run like Nimes so far this season, winning two, losing three and drawing three of their opening Ligue 1 games. This means that Reims are winless in six league fixtures, registering three draws and three defeats in this term. Away from home, Reims are winless in three league trips, losing twice in the process.
It’s hard to predict the outcome of this game, but we think that Reims are capable of getting a positive result here as they hold the better head-to-head record in this tie. Our betting tips and predictions would back Reims Draw No Bet at odds 2.25.
