Nimes vs Saint Etienne: Prediction and Betting Tips

15:05, Apr 04 2021
Nimes vs Saint Etienne prediction for Sunday’s round 31 clash of the French Ligue 1 at Stade des Costières in Nîmes. Relegation-threatened at 18th place Nimes host another side close to the relegation zone 16th placed St. Etienne. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Survival hopes arise as Nimes find good form

One loss in seven matches has seen Nimes revive their hopes of staying in the Ligue 1 for another season. They still have to do a lot of work though and one of them is to win on Sunday against a St. Etienne side that Nimes haven’t beaten in 22 games.

Coach Pascal Plancque has worked hard to bring his side this good run of form after two difficult spells in which Les Crocodiles suffered four consecutive losses and looked destined for relegation. Their biggest win of the season came in the last round when they beat then league leaders Lille 2-1 away.

A remarkable defensive performance in the last seven matches has seen Nimes let in just four goals and they kept their opponents from scoring in three games. Moussa Kone has been on the scoring sheet in three of the last four matches and helped his side to grab crucial points.

Saint Etienne in search of a crucial win

Contrary to their opponents, Saint Etienne are not experiencing good form in their recent matches as Les Vert lost three of their last four matches, and having two wins in six matches was not enough to take them to safety.

Just four points above their opponents before the start of this match with 33 points, coach Claude Puel needs to find better defensive tactics coming into this match after his team suffered a heavy 4-0 loss in their last outing at home to Monaco.

Claude Puel needs to urge his players for a good start to the match as his team lost 11 of 12 matches they trailed in the first half. In the match against Monaco, Les Verts were 1-0 down after 13 minutes and couldn’t get back to the game even though they had nine goal attempts.

Key Stats

  • Nimes are unbeaten in their last four home matches
  • Nimes have scored in all of their last five home games
  • St.Etienne have won three of their last four away games
  • St.Etienne have scored in all of their last four away games

Nimes vs Saint Etienne Prediction

In one of the most important matches of the season for both teams, Nimes enter this match hoping to continue their good form. They must forget their head-to-head record with St.Etienne though and focus on what they have been doing very well in recent games and that is conceding few goals (five in seven games).

St. Etienne are in a critical situation themselves. They need a win to stay safe and increase the gap with their opponents to seven points. 

Even though St.Etienne are the favorites to win this match, Nimes are in better form, and in recent matches coach Plancque’s team look eager to win their matches. We will back Nimes for a win and cover it with a draw.
