Draw at Half-Time

Lens and Nimes are in great form. They both come into this fixture after securing a 1-1 draw in their respective fixtures last weekend. Despite collecting three red cards last weekend at Brest, Lens players maintained their cool and played a defensive game without conceding or scoring more. The visitors played Strasbourg and secured the same result. In the reverse fixture, Lens and Nimes shared the spoils in a match that ended 1-1.

Few than Three Goals

This should be a tough fixture for both sides. Lens are 6th on Ligue 1 table and will play to get more points. The hosts are three points from getting into the Europa League playoff spot. However, Nimes is fighting to stay above the red zone. The visitors are 18th on the table and only three points above relegation candidates, Nantes. In a fixture like this, the best defence wins. Both teams are strong at the back and we may not see a lot of goals in this game.

Draw at Fulltime

Lens has the third most draws in Ligue 1 this season. The two teams shared the spoils in the reverse fixture after seeing out 1-1 result. Lens secured a point last weekend when they drew 1-1 with Brest. Nimes travels to Lens after securing two points in a row in fixtures that ended 1-1. Given how significant this fixture is for both teams, and especially for the visitors who are fighting to stay up, a draw looks like the most plausible outcome at full-time.

Game Preview: Lens Europa League Chase Continues

Lens has its ambition marked out. However, playing Nimes, a team that needs points to stay up could be a big threat to the hosts on Sunday.

Lens

Lens are unbeaten in the last 12 Ligue 1 games. During that period, they have secured 7 draws. The hosts are 6th in Ligue 1 and more points on Sunday will see them displace Marseille from the fifth position and go above them by one point. Moreover, the hosts hold 7 victories and two draws against Nimes. They are the better side in this game. But can they secure victory against Nimes? Let’s look at stats for Nimes.

Nimes

Nimes must do all it takes to win or draw if they must keep the fight for survival alive. The only worry for the visitors is inconsistent results. The visitors have lost two matches in the last ten games, secured four victories and four within that duration. Moreover, Nimes has conceded the second-highest number of goals in the league (60), 28 of which have been on the road. With five victories and two draws against Lens in the previous 14 encounters, the visitors can only bank on their defence to bag points on Sunday.
