Nimes – St Etienne : Preview & Prediction
Nimes, 15th in Ligue 1, is dangerously close to the relegation zone (1 point ahead) because of a negative spiral that has lasted since August 25th. Indeed, the promoted Gard has not won the least match in two months and is on a relegation rate for a few weeks. Undefeated at the Costières stadium since 1 September, Nimes has two draws in front of Guingamp (0-0) and Reims (0-0). Crocodiles will want to restart the machine against ASSE after a defeat in Lyon (2-0) last Friday. St Etienne, 6th in Ligue 1, sees the podium move away due to the last two bad results. ASSE lost to Lille (3-1) before being hooked by Rennes (1-1) to Geoffroy Guichard last weekend. This move in the Gard could be more complicated than expected against a Nimes training that is in urgent need of points and whose victory is the only obsession.
Nîmes never lost in the Costières stadium against St Etienne: 2 wins and 2 draws.
The Crocodiles will want to break their black series of 8 games without a win (4 draws and 4 defeats).
St Etienne is in the tough with 2 matches without success (1 loss and 1 draw).
The record of Nîmes at home is still good with 1 success on OM, 2 draws and 1 defeats against PSG.
A victory of the promoted would allow him to move away from the red zone which he approaches dangerously.
Unable to win any game at the Costières stadium, Saint-Étienne could once again face the awakening of the Crocodiles who will be prepared to break this negative dynamic.
