This is a rivalry with quite some history behind it that is all in favor of Nimes – 7 victories and 3 draws in the last 10 games. Valenciennes has no victories. In the last 5 home games against Valenciennes, Nimes has 4 victories and a 1:1 draw (the away team managed to score a lucky goal in the 93rd minute of the game). Furthermore, Nimes is currently ranked 10th while Valenciennes is 16th with only a few points separating the team from the relegation zone.
Under 2.5 goals
In the last 10 games between the two clubs, we had 5 games that resulted in 2 or fewer goals being scored but the last 5 home games all resulted in 2 or fewer goals being scored. Valenciennes has difficulties in attacking this season with only 16 goals in 20 games – the 3rd worst attacks in the league. The only teams that are performing even worse than that are Nancy and Dunkerque.
Both teams to score – No
As we mentioned above, Valenciennes has the 3rd worse attack this season and we don’t think that the team is going to perform any better against a team that always demolishes them. In the last 5 times that Nimes hosted this clash, Valenciennes managed to score only 1 goal – the late 93-minute stunner that we mentioned above. In the last 5 away games, Valenciennes scored only once.
Tradition and history to hit Valenciennes hard
We have always believed in the power of tradition and history in football predictions and we believe this will be more valid than ever in the Nimes vs Valenciennes game. Our football experts predict a narrow 1:0 victory for the home side that will be a huge blow for Valenciennes as it could cost them the 16th position and Christophe Delmotte and his boys could find themselves in the relegation zone after this fixture.
