Nimes – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
The Nîmes Olympique has been getting better since February 1 as the Crocodiles had managed to record 4 straight championship victories before losing to Rennes (2-1) last Sunday. The Gard club had thus beaten at home Monaco (3-1), Dijon (2-0) and Angers (1-0) then had won a nice victory on the lawn of Nice (3-1) on February 8th. But this relapse leaves the resident of Costières in relegation position, in 18th place, not far from the first non relegable Dijon (on equal points). The arrival of Olympique de Marseille will fill the Costières and the Marseille club needs 3 points to revive themselves after their failure at the Vélodrome in front of Nantes (1-3) on the last day. The Marseillais had not lost in the league for almost 4 months!. Outside, the band at Payet remains on 2 important successes in St Etienne (2-0) and Lille (2-1) and would see themselves achieve the pass of three to consolidate their 2nd place.
Olympique de Marseille is 2nd overall.
The Nîmes Olympique is only 18th in the standings.
The Marseille club won 3 goals to 1 at the Vélodrome in the first leg.
Nîmes lost to Rennes (2-1) on the last day.
Marseille suffered against Nantes (1-3) its first defeat in L1 since October 27!
Marseille will not miss the opportunity to glean a precious success in the Gard after its poor performance at home against Nantes.
