Match preview 🖊
AS Saint-Étienne host Nîmes Olympique in this Ligue 1 (L1) clash, with ‘Les Verts’ looking to build on their outstanding historical top-flight H2H home record against the visitors (W23, D5, L4). Meanwhile, Nîmes will be hunting their first league win at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard since August 1971.
The hosts have only won 2 of their last five matches, however, and that will raise doubts over their ability to finish. It must be said that they've faced PSG and Marseille during that stretch, and one of their wins was a 5-0 thumping of Caen away from home.
Both teams have scored in just three of Nîmes’ last ten away league fixtures so we don't expect massive fireworks here and under 2.5 goals might be your best bet, seeing as though five of their last six meetings with Nimes in all competitions have featured under 2.5 goals.
Team news 📰
Influential attacking midfielder Wahbi Khazri is suspended for the hosts and will miss out, alongside injured duo Gabriel Silva & Loic Perrin. For Nimes, Loick Landre is suspended and Clement Depres & Moustapha Diallo are both injured.
