Both Teams to Score

Nimes and Strasbourg are currently struggling with consistency. The hosts have conceded at least a goal in their last six Ligue 1 fixtures. And despite winning away at Lille on 21st March, they could not keep a clean sheet. Thus, we are backing the visitors to score. Coming into this fixture, Strasbourg will hope to build on their 5-0 home victory against Nimes in the reverse fixture. However, the visitors are struggling defensively. They have lost three and won two in the last five Ligue 1 games. A slump in form is seemingly creeping into the squad, and we backing to the hosts to also score.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

While only two of the last 9 Ligue 1 matches for the host have had more than two goals, they have only failed to score once within that time. On the other hand, Strasbourg defence looks troubled after shipping four goals last weekend at PSG in a 4-1 loss. Before the PSG match, Strasbourg registered a win on the road but failed to keep a clean sheet when Bordeaux put two shots past Matz Sels. Unless they buckle up a bit, Strasbourg defensive worries could get the better of them on Sunday. More than two goals look very likely in this match.

Both Teams to Score at Half-Time

This is a highly ambitious bet and the odds are crazy. However, we are arguing on the premise that Strasbourg has been shipping lots of goals in the first half of their last three games, including their 3-2 victory at Bordeaux. In this fixture, we see a similar trend where Strasbourg will concede an early goal to Nimes. The visitors are also likely to score at least a goal by halftime.

Game Preview: Nimes Looking for Home Victory since February

Check out of match preview for Nimes vs. Strasbourg.

Nimes

Nimes currently occupies the 18th position on Ligue 1, which assures them of relegation playoff. However, with only two points from the drop and two points from safety, they will only want to go higher. The hosts have the second-worst home record this season with only 3 victories, three draws and 10 losses in 16 home fixtures played thus far. They have scored 31 and conceded 17 at home. Moreover, Nimes lost the reverse fixture by five goals to nil. They are in the most precarious situation right now. A good run of form that started on 14th February has suddenly been interrupted by inconsistencies. Nimes come into this match with a 1-1 draw at Brest last weekend.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg manager, Thierry Laurey, hopes to defeat his Sunday opponent yet again this season. However, it could prove difficult in a match that is important for both sides. Strasbourg is 14th on the Ligue 1 table, five two positions ahead of the Nimes but only six points separates them. The visitors have the worst form in the last five Ligue 1 games (two victories and three losses). Moreover, Strasbourg has picked more red cards in their previous fixtures with Nimes (3 against 2). In a fixture like this, where two teams are struggling for survival, no one wants to lose and it could be cards galore from referee Antony Gautier on 18th Sunday.
