Nimes Olympique is welcoming Paris Saint-Germain to Stade des Costieres in round 7 in the French Ligue 1.
Nimes has been hot and cold so far this season, and they have 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses so far in Ligue 1. With 8 points, 9 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals, Nimes is in 13th place in the standings. In their last Ligue 1 match against Montpellier on the road, Nimes has had 49% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. This wasn’t a particularly good game, and both teams have been struggling in the attacking end in this match. In the 84th minute, Nimes has scored a leading goal, and they ended up winning this match 0-1. Ferhat has been Nimes’ best player so far this season with 3 goals and 2 assists, while Merling added 1 goal and 2 assists. Depres, Valerio, Alakouch, Duljevic, and Sarr are all injured, and they will most likely not be in the lineup for this match. Nimes is one of the few teams that actually benefited from the Coronavirus break last season because they avoided the relegation because of it. I don’t expect this season to be any easier for Nimes, but so far, they are doing well.
PSG has started the season with 2 losses, but they have reached a good form after that, and they are now on a 4-game winning streak. During this stretch, PSG has scored 12 goals while conceding only 1 goal. With 12 points, 12 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, PSG is now in 4th place in the Ligue 1 standings. Neymar, Mbappe, Icardi, and Draxler have each scored 2 goals for PSG so far this season, while Mbappe also added 3 assists. Neymar, Di Maria, Bakker, and Sarabia also added 1 assist each. Bernat and Kerher are injured, while Kurzawa and Di Maria are both suspended because of the red cards. In their latest Ligue 1 match before the international break, PSG was playing against Angers at home, and they were the better team with 57% of ball possession, 12 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a high 92% of the correct passes. PSG was a much better team in this match, and they were in total control the entire time. PSG has won this match 6-1. PSG has been the best team in France over the last few years, and they even reached the Champions League finals last season, but they lost. PSG is the main favorite to win the Ligue 1 once again this season, but it will not be as easy as it was last season.
Nimes and PSG have met 4 times in the past, and PSG has won all 4 games, dominantly I might add. PSG is the better team here, and probably the best team in France, and most of their players are playing in good form, especially Neymar and Mbappe. I’m sticking with PSG.
