Saint-Etienne to Win

Although both teams have started the new season with a loss, Saint-Etienne lost their game away from home, while Nimes hosted the match they lost to Metz.

So, with Saint-Etienne hosting this game and with them clearly being the better team on paper, we can see them beating Nimes. After all, they did this in four of the last five meetings with this club.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between Saint-Etienne and Nimes have gone over 2.5 total goals and we can see that being the case on Saturday as well.

In addition to this, Saint-Etienne averaged 3.13 goals per game in Ligue 1 last season, while Nimes averaged 2.50 goals per game in Ligue 2 last year, so both teams can play high-scoring football.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We saw both teams score in three of the previous five h2h meetings between Saint-Etienne and Nimes, so we expect the same to happen in their upcoming duel too.

After all, both teams have scored in 68% of all matches played by Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 last year, while the same was true for 50% of all Nimes matches in Ligue 2 last season.

Saint-Etienne vs Nimes preview: Who gets their first win of the season?

Saint-Etienne

After a tough last season which saw the team relegated after the relegation playoffs, Saint-Etienne will be hoping for a swift return to Ligue 1, the top flight of French football. However, the team started the new season with a loss to Dijon in the first round, so they will clearly have their work cut out for them. Meanwhile, Denis Bouanga will miss this game to serve a suspension.

Nimes

Last season Nimes was ninth in the standings in Ligue 2 and they are certainly hoping to do a bit better this season. That being said, Nimes is one of the teams that’s expected to finish in the middle of the standings once again. Meanwhile, the team started the new season with a loss to Caen at home in a very close and exciting game.
