Nimes win or draw

Nimes has a golden chance of moving to safety when they host Saint-Etienne on Sunday. With Etienne also fighting to stay above the red zone, recent team form plays significance in this fixture. Etienne is 16th, four points ahead of 18th placed Nimes. The hosts have only lost one game in the last seven fixtures and only four goals conceded in those games. Etienne comes into this fixture with a shaky form and has been conceding a lot of goals lately. A win or draw for the hosts is pricey on the books.

Both teams will find the net

Nimes has won three games in their last seven with a clean sheet. They have drawn 1-1 twice and lost 2-1 within that duration. In a nutshell, the hosts have found the net in the last 9 games and we are backing them to do so again in this fixture. The visitors have failed to score in two of their last 7  games. They have kept three clean sheets within that duration. Backing both teams to score based on these stats is a good price on the books.

Nimes to win plus less than three match-goals

Another value bet is backing Nimes to win the fixture and a full-time result of fewer than three goals. A troubled defence of the visitors could see then conceded early goals against the hosts. The two team teams haven’t scored a lot of goals in their previous meetings, a trend likely to continue in this fixture.

Match Preview: Nimes vs. Saint-Etienne

Nimes

With only one loss against Nice on the road on 3rd March in seven league games, you cannot rule out Nimes in this fixture. It is a must-win for them against an equally struggling team. Nimes has not conceded more than a goal in their previous seven games. They beat Lille on the road despite having only 28% possession. Four wins, two draws and one loss in the last seven games are why we are backing a home win or draw.

Saint-Etienne

Saint-Etienne will be worried about their defence when they face a team fighting to stay afloat in League 1. The visitors have conceded at least two goals in three of their six last games, and a total of 10 goals conceded in those fixtures. The visitors have not reached 50% game possession, which includes their away 1-0 victory against Angers on 13th March 2021. The best Etienne can get in this fixture is a draw despite being the bookie’s favourites.
