It seems that Quevilly Rouen have found some decent form just when it matter the most. The side comes from two consecutive wins and are now just two points behind safely placed Bourg Peronnas.
In the most recent game the side managed to beat all the odds and get a 2:0 victory away from home against Le Havre last Friday evening. They have entered the game in the best possible way, taking the lead in third minute via Gakpa and continued being better in first halftime.
It looks like the players of Le Havre got confused with early setback never being able to re-group themselves and be really threatening while the guests scored second when the players of Le Havre risked the most – in 85th minute via Mamilonne.
With two points behind the safe zone, the side needs to get something here too and in case they continue performing last in previous couple of weeks they might be able to avoid relegation.
Nimes, on the other side, is now looking like a side close to a perfect form as they have five consecutive victories in a row. In the most recent game, they managed to get a win over Valenciennes at home with a narrow 1:0 result last Friday.
Alioui scored only goal in 20th minute in a game where the hosts simply did what was needed. They made a good start, took the lead but once they got it they looked pretty satisfied with it. As the time passed they were less and less interested into attacking the opponent.
In the end, the game ended with visitors having way more better chances created – but the goals are what is counted. The side now stands at second position with four points more than third placed AC Ajaccio and needs to keep the distance safe if they are to get the direct promotion.
~ Nimes have won their last 5 matches.
Both teams will try to go for a victory here. Home side has improved and surely won’t be defending here while the visitors anyway are coming here for all three points. A draw doesn’t mean much to the hosts. That’s why I believe we have a valuable bet here since the guests anyway play open minded football on the road.
