Nimes’ recent performance
The regulations of the League Cup of France allowed Nimes to make their debut in the tournament already in the third stage. This benefit is given to the teams that play for Ligue 1. On Saturday, November 24, in the fourteenth round of the competition in their 2018/2019 season, Nimes, as a visitor, defeated Strasbourg 1-0.
He finished with 17 points (four wins, five draws and five wins), rising to eleventh on the leaderboard. The distance of nine points for Lille, fourth placed and last in the classification block for European competitions, does not allow the club’s fans to have great ambitions.
Thus, the real goal is to ensure permanence in the elite division of French football. In this case, the situation is relatively comfortable. Nimes have five points ahead of Dijon, sixteenth and first team in the sticking region.
Performance as a client, however, has been worrying. When only the results of the 20 Ligue 1 teams obtained in their domains are considered, Nimes is the fourth worst. Of the 18 points that played in that condition, they accumulated only six (one win, three draws and two losses) with six goals scored and seven conceded.St. Etienne had on Friday, November 23, their four-match unbeaten run (two wins and two draws) broken by Lyon. At the home of the rival, lost by 1 to 0. It was, thus, parked in the 23 points (six wins, five draws and three losses). He dropped to sixth on the Ligue 1 table when he was beaten by Olympique de Marseille, who reached the 25-point mark by outscoring Amiens 3-1.
Unlike Nimes, the away performance is that it has been St. Etienne’s Achilles’ Heel, who only managed six points (one win, three draws and three losses) of the 21 who played away from their dominions. It is the fifth worst in this issue in the 2018/2019 French Championship.
To face Nimes, coach Jean-Louis Gasset has only one medical doubt. It is midfielder Loic Perrin, absolute owner of the team having participated in 12 matches of the French Championship. The 33-year-old suffered a muscle injury in a 2-0 win over Reims. He needed to be taken out at half-time, he was out of contention with Lyon and most likely will not be able to be related to this Tuesday’s match in Nimes.
