Nimes vs Valenciennes – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Nimes are heading into the game after a crucial 3-2 success over Pau which might have given the team some kind of a lifeline with regards to avoiding relegation zone. Valenciennes remain precariously positioned just above the bottom four after the 2-0 win over Bordeaux.

Nimes to win

Nimes will be high from the recent victory over Pau which has given the team a lifeline with regards to avoiding relegation. Valenciennes are likely to be very concerned after the last weekend’s defeat against Bordeaux, although it was against a team challenging for promotion. The real test of Valenciennes will occur over the next few weeks when they go up against relegation rivals – Nimes and Pau in back-to-back matches.

Total goals over 2.5

The lack of goals within the Valenciennes team has been pretty dominant but the team has had difficult matches in recent games. Now, the match against a relegation rival should present opportunities for Valenciennes to make inroads in the final third. Valenciennes will be aware that they cannot survive in the league without scoring goals and picking up points.

Both teams to score – yes

There have been goals at both ends in consecutive meetings between Nimes and Valenciennes. Both teams have been defensively quite poor over the last few weeks so much so that one can expect goals in the upcoming match. This game is a good pick to expect goals at both ends.

Nimes vs Valenciennes Match Preview – Team News and Analysis

Nimes

Nimes were able to give themselves a sizeable boost in the fight against relegation after picking up three points in the game against Pau. The result has put the team five points away from catching safety, but the team also has to depend on other teams dropping points. A major advantage for Nimes will be that three of the remaining five matches of the campaign are against the relegation rivals.

Valenciennes
