Foot Predictions predicts the Ligue 1 clash on Sunday between Nimes and Bordeaux, including hunches, news about the teams and possible lineups.
Bordeaux it will be out of the question to end a streak of four games without a win in Ligue 1 when they travel to relegation threatened Nimes for Sunday’s first division clash.
The hosts ended their own arid streak with a 2-0 win over Dijon last time, while Bordeaux kept Marseille in a goalless draw.
Pascal Plancque he still has a long way to go if he wants to get Nimes out of the danger zone, but at least he won his first victory as a Crocodiles coach with a comfortable 2-0 win over Dijon last Sunday.
Renaud Ripart and Niclas Eliasson both made the net ripple when Nimes advanced three points ahead of their relegation rivals, and although Plancque’s men have one game less than 18th-placed Nantes, they are four points behind their opponents and cannot get past the dotted line, no matter what happens the weekend.
Les Crocodiles had lost their previous four matches – conceding at least three goals at a time – before their victory over Dijon, and while almost any team could overcome the league’s pinches now, that victory should have done wonders for Nimes’ confidence. , and O de Plancque in particular.
However, Nimes’ good form away from home is largely the reason why they still stand a chance, as Les Crocodiles have lost their last nine home games in all competitions – eight of them joining the league – and a ninth. A direct Ligue 1 defeat at the Stade des Costieres would set them an unwanted record of consecutive first division defeats.
The 4-0 defeat of Brest in August remains the only time Nimes have won three points in a game in familiar territory this season, and the 51 goals they have scored this season are by far the worst in the division, although Bordeaux is not exactly known for any kind of prolific nature.
Inconsistency remains the root of all Bordeaux problems this semester, although Jean-Louis GassetThe team’s men managed to at least end a three-game losing streak by drawing Marseille at the Matmut Atlantique last time.
Marseille traveled to Bordeaux without winning there in 43 years, and the Girondins assured that the agonizing wait for an away win would continue for some time, since there were no goals in the battle on Sunday – a result that marked the first home of the Bordeaux clean sheet from 2021.
However, Gasset would undoubtedly be frustrated to see his team take just one point from that confrontation after Leonardo Balerdi and Dario Benedetto both saw Marseille in the red, as Les Girondins – who have now dropped to 11th place – failed to claim the advantage of two players in the last 30 minutes.
At a time when Josh Maja started the loan to Fulham in style, Bordeaux should get Hwang Ui-jo – who scored just one goal in the last four matches – shot all cylinders again, although Gasset’s men have only failed in two of their 12 away matches this season.
Bordeaux put Nimes 2-0 at the start of the season and visitors aspire to win at Les Crocodiles for the first time since the 1983-84 season this weekend.

All news from the teams
Plancque still has a multitude of absentees to be taken into account, with Sidy Sarr, Pablo Martinez and Loick Landre all with several injuries, but the last two would have an external chance of returning to Sunday’s game.
Florian Miguel was forced to leave shortly before the break against Dijon due to nausea, Plancque confirmed, but the defender appears to be training well and should be doing well at the weekend.
Eliasson certainly hopes to win back the starting lineup after his weekend goal, with Yassine Benrahou potentially being unlucky to give up.
The Bordeaux double pivot of Otavio and Takes Basic has been interrupted in recent weeks due to injuries from both players, the latter having been forced to leave the game in the first half against Marseille.
With Otavio still injured, Jean Michael Seri will continue in the middle of the park next door Yacine Adli, While Enock Kwatengthe right-sided seat is also safe because Youssouf Sabaly recover from a thigh problem.
With Gasset’s options in midfield even more exhausted, Samuel Kalu should return widely, allowing Hatem Ben Arfa to occupy your usual number 10 role.
Possible initial line-up of Nimes:
Reynet; Alakouch, Briancon, Miguel, Meling; Vats; Ferhat, Deaux, Ripart, Eliasson; Kone
Possible initial Bordeaux lineup:
Costil; Kwateng, Baysse, Koscielny, Benito; Adli, Seri; Kalu, Ben Arfa, Oudin; Hwang
Probability: Nimes 1-2 Bordeaux
Bordeaux is unlikely to have a better opportunity to rediscover its scoring touch than against the league’s most defensive defense, although the first signs for Nimes under Plancque are relatively promising. Les Girondins cannot go into this game with the expectation of three easy points and the hosts can give them a good run for their money, but we still hope that the men of Gasset will achieve the long-awaited victory.
