Nimes to Draw of Win

The big question in this fixture is whether Nimes will survive the drop after losing an important match to Saint-Etienne in their last fixture at home. Despite dominating Etienne in second half by 61%, a resurgent Nimes failed to score. They did not register any shot on target in first half of that fixture. Three shots on target in second half did not materialize to a goal either. However, playing Brest, an equally struggling side is a different ball game. Nimes has defeated their Sunday hosts eight times in the last 16 meetings. There has been three draws between the two teams. Thus, backing Nimes to maintain that record with a draw or win seems like a good bet.

Both Teams will Score

Another probable outcome in this fixture is both teams finding the net. As struggling as both teams are, they also have defensive challenges. Nimes has conceded at least a goal in their last five fixtures, winning one, losing two and drawing two. The hosts have conceded at least three goals in two out of their last five fixtures. So far Brest has conceded 54 goals in 31 Ligue 1 games while Nimes has conceded 58 in the same number of games. Backing both teams to score is, therefore, a likely outcome.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Given the defensive problems both sides have, this will likely be a high scoring fixture. Brest only have one clean sheet of 0-0 draw in their last five games. They have lost four of their last five Ligue 1 fixtures by an average of 2 goals per match. Nimes may have lost only twice in their last five league fixtures, but their struggling defense leaked at least a goal in those matches. Thus, betting more than two goals is plausible in this match.

Fixture Preview: Can Nimes escape the drop?

This fixture will be more important to the visitors than it is to Brest. Let’s dig deeper in the match preview below.

Brest

Brest are 16th in Ligue 1 table. A point or more could see them remain afloat. They have the sixth best home record in the league so far with 29 goals and 25 conceded. However, failing to win any of their last three matches is something to worry about coming into this fixture. They have 5 victories and 5 draws against their Sunday opponents. However, a recent dip in form and a defense that has leaked 7 goals in their last four games means they are likely to concede more.

Nimes

Nimes is 18th in the league, only one point off the drop, which is why they need at least a draw to keep their survival hopes alive. Going into this fixture, Nimes is better in form than the hosts. They have only failed to score once in the last five Ligue 1 games. This will be an all-decider fixture and we don’t think they will want to slip further after losing 2-0 to Saint-Etienne a week ago.
