Nimes win

Nimes and Bastia were able to trade blows in the reverse fixture back in July, but the home team come into this upcoming fixture with a distinct advantage of good form and momentum in recent weeks. Bastia’s form has not been great ever since securing safety in the division and they have managed just one victory in the recent six matches.

Total goals over 2.5

A strong feature of Nimes has been their offensive threat with the team getting goals of over 2.5 in two of the last three matches. Bastia have a habit of scoring goals even in away matches. Even though a significant chunk of the recent away games for Nimes has ended up producing less than 2.5 goals, the goals from Nimes can be of huge assistance in this game.

Both teams to score – yes

Bastia have not scored in just one of the last eight away matches in the league. This spells trouble for a Nimes team who have not managed a clean sheet on a regular basis. Since coming to the club in January, Nicolas Usai has overseen an improvement in offensive form but Nimes have just one clean sheet in the last five.

Nimes vs Bastia: Match Preview and Team News


Nicolas Usai will be keen on pushing for a string of goals once again as Nimes try to level up things with their offensive strength. In the last three matches, Nimes have returned an impressive 10 goals and the number could have been greater if not for meeting a strong team like Toulouse in the last match.


Bastia are already looking forward to the holidays and the latest defeat at the hands of Rodez appears to be a confirmation of the same. The club are finishing the campaign without any major relegation trouble, as they could end up with a six-point advantage over the bottom three. Tom Ducrocq is out with a hip injury for manager Régis Brouard.
