Nimes vs. Amiens – Prediction (19.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Nîmes and Amiens have only faced twice in Ligue 1, it was during last season: Nîmes won at home in December 2018 (3-0) but then lost at Amiens in March 2019 (1-2). Amiens have won two of their last four games in Ligue 1 (D1 L1), as many as in their previous 15 (D8 L5). Nîmes have won only two of their last 11 games in Ligue 1 (D4 L5), on 31st August 2019 against Brest (3-0) and on 21st September 2019 against Toulouse (1-0).

Nîmes come into this game hoping to regain some momentum after remaining winless in each of their last three Ligue 1 (L1) fixtures (D1, L2). Their 2-2 draw away to Lille last weekend put an end to a run of four straight league games which produced under 1.5 goals (total). Nîmes have lost three of their last five home games in Ligue 1 (W2), after being unbeaten in their previous eight (W6 D2). Scoring first in this game could be vital to Nîmes’ chances, as they have gone on to win ten of the last 11 L1 home games in which they netted the opening goal (W10, D1). However, the fact that ‘les Crocodiles’ have conceded first in six of their nine L1 matches so far (a joint-league worst) will surely concern coach Bernard Blaquart.

Amiens’ 3-1 home victory against Marseille in their last L1 outing, made it five straight league games to feature both sides scoring. Similarly to this game, Amiens have scored the opening goal in each of their last five league fixtures, with four coming in the first 15 minutes of play. Amiens have won only one of their 13 away games in Ligue 1 in 2019 (D5 L7), it was on 21st September at Metz (2-1). Notably, the visitors boast the lowest average number of shot attempts per-game (8.78) in the league. In addition, the fact that Amiens have not kept a single clean sheet across their last seven competitive trips to Stade des Costières will not bring confidence to traveling fans.
