Nimes vs Paris SG Prediction & Tips
Nimes and PSG meet on Friday, in a match from the 7th stage of the French championship. Big favorites on paper, Parisians face big batch problems. You can find the recommended tip at the end of the match analysis.
Nîmes was saved at the limit, last season, after the season was frozen. The “crocodiles” were on the 18th place, dam position, when the championship was interrupted, but the dam was no longer played, so the team coached now by Jerome Arpinon was saved. Arpinon replaced Bernard Blaquart in June, but the start of the season was very difficult. After a clear victory with Brest (4-0) in the first stage, Nîmes did not win any of the next 4 matches, in which it barely collected two points. Before the break, Nimes ticked the second success of the season, 1-0 at Montpellier.
Normally, Arpinon will bet on the same team from the match with Montpellier, especially since there are no problems from the point of view of the group. Ferhat, Ripart and Denkey will play offensively, while the defense will once again rely on Burner and Melling, who came in the summer. A newcomer will also be at the gate. It’s about Baptiste Reynet.
Nîmes has kept its goal intact in two of the last 3 league matches, with Montpellietr (1-0) and Lyon (0-0), both played away. In the last two matches played at home, Nîmes was led to the break. The crocodiles have only one success at home in the last 4 matches, 4-0 with Brest.
PSG is on an upward trend in the league, after the problems it had at the start of the season. The Parisians have won the last 4 matches and reached the 4th place, just two points behind the leader Rennes. At the same time, they overcame Marseille by 3 lengths, in front of which they lost in the second stage, right on their own field. PSG have conceded only one goal in the last 4 matches and have scored no less than 12, half of them in the very last match, won 6-1 in front of Dijon. However, Thomas Tuchel has big team problems before the match with Nîmes and the one with Manchester United, on Tuesday, in the UEFA Champions League.
No less than 10 players are missing at this time, for various reasons. Draxler, Verratti, Marquinhos, Kehrer, Bernat and Icardi are injured. The last one hit in training, while Danilo is in isolation, direct contact with Cristiano, on the national team. In the same situation is Dagba, direct contact of Cacqueret, at the French youth national team. However, as for Dagba, the result of the last test is expected, so he can catch the group for the match at the Stade des Costieres. Di Maria and Kurzawa are suspended. In these conditions, it remains to be seen if Tuchel will bet on Neymar and Mbappe, from the first minute, or if they will play one by one, in Friday’s match, to be in top form on Tuesday, at the Champions League debut.
PSG have lost only once in the last 10 away games, right at the start of this season, 0-1 with Lens. Otherwise, he ticked 8 victories and a draw, 4-4 with Amiens. During the same period, the Parisians kept their goal intact in only 4 matches.
