Note: Because odds change very often, we recommend checking Betfred for the latest prices for Nimes vs Reims.

Both Teams to Score: No

Only one goal in favour of Nimes was scored in the reverse fixture. Moreover, a fixture between these two teams has been a one-sided affair in most of their previous meetings. The previous five encounters haven’t had goals on both ends, a trend we foresee in this game. Despite sitting in the red zone, we give Nimes an edge due to their improved defensive record in the last ten games. The hosts have conceded an average of one goal per match in their last ten fixtures.

Under 2.5 Goals: Yes

Another good bet in this game is fewer than three goals. While Nimes has kept only two clean sheets in their last ten games, seven of those fixtures had fewer than three goals. The visitors have also been strong defensively, keeping four clean sheets in their last ten games. A striking similarity in this fixture is that Reims has also seen less than three goals in seven out of the last ten games. Moreover, seven out of previous encounters have had less than three goals.

Nimes and Reims to Share the Spoils

Nimes and Reims appear to be at par on many fronts. Thus, we expect a deadlocked game on Sunday. The hosts need points to escape relegation. However, with Lyon still to play, it could prove difficult if Nimes fail to defeat Reims on Sunday.

Nimes vs Reims Preview: Can Nimes Win and Move to Safety?

Nimes is threatened by relegation going into this game. But can the hosts collect another three points from Reims this season?

Nimes

Nimes is second last in Ligue 1 table. However, they hold a better record against Reims before the Sunday fixture. The hosts have defeated Reims four times and drawn seven times against Sunday opponents in the previous 13 encounters. They also have the advantage of three points against Reims having won the reverse fixture. A strong defence and a home advantage could further reassure Nimes of a possible victory on Sunday.

Reims

Like Nimes, Reims has kept its defence tightly knit. The visitors went down to Marseille in a 3-1 defeat last weekend, the only loss in their last ten games. Moreover, Reims has had seven draws in their last ten games, an indication of their hard-fought fixtures to secure safety. Winning at Nimes could be another tall order given that the visitors lost the reverse fixture. However, it is possible to collect at least a point on the road on Sunday.
