Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Nimes play host to Lens at their Stade des Costieres on Sunday afternoon. Les Crocodiles failed to win the previous three league fixtures, and given Lens’ flying start to the season, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Nimes boss Jerome Arpinon has a number of injury worries ahead of the visit of Lens, but keep in mind that his men managed to hold star-studded Lyon to a goalless draw at the weekend.
The newcomers, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, with the team recording a win in each of their last three league fixtures. The Yellow and Reds are brimming with confidence ahead of Matchday 5, and they are surely capable of sharing the spoils with Nimes at an empty Stade des Costieres. Talented defender Loic Bade returns from suspension for the visitors.
