Nimes vs. St. Etienne – Score prediction (29.09.2019)




Overview.

Mid-table but losing just one of their last five L1 matches, Nîmes’ last three games have produced under 1.5 goals. However, winning ‘to nil’ in their last two home matches, Nîmes have only lost three league matches at the Stade des Costières this calendar year. Scoring first and leading at the break in two home games so far (W2), the ‘Crocodiles’ have seen both teams score in just two matches this season. Conceding four goals within 31-minutes so far, Nimes have failed to score in just one of 14 home games in 2019.

Without a win in seven matches in all competitions, AS Saint-Étienne’s only victory this season came in matchday one. Whilst they’ve conceded over 2.5 goals in half of their four L1 awaydays, the ‘Greens’ have scored first in two away games, including last time out. Nonetheless, Saint-Étienne have won six league awaydays in 2019 scoring over 1.5 away goals in five of those 2019 matches. However, despite winning their last H2H meeting 2-1, Saint-Étienne haven’t won here in five trips in all competitions.
