Reason For Nimes vs Saint-Etienne Betting Tips

  • Both sides are on poor runs ahead of this meeting.

  • The hosts have seen both teams score in 5 of their last 6 home games in this competition.
  • St Etienne have drawn back to back League Cup games 1-1.

Strugglers Search for Cup Success

Two sides who are each in need of a turnaround are chasing a cup victory this week. Neither of these two sides can consider their last month to be a success. Saint Etienne head into this one with three defeats in four Ligue 1 games, while the hosts haven’t won since September, losing five of their last six.

Both clubs are hoping salvation will come in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday night, as they look for a midweek success. Could they turn around their league campaigns with a League Cup victory on Wednesday?

Nimes Get Break from the Battle

The home side are getting a break from the survival fight this week, with the club aiming to build on their two home wins this campaign. They are approaching three months without a victory, which is bad news for the second-bottom team. They’re at risk of being cut adrift, as they’re five points shy of guaranteed safety as it stands.

With 29 goals against them in Ligue 1, defending has been a major concern for the hosts. They’re among the worst in the top flight, while they’ve hardly been better in this competition. Nimes have seen both teams score in five of their last six at home, while they’ve kept only one clean sheet at their own ground this season.

Goals Set to Follow Visitors

Saint Etienne have seen over 2.5 goals in 67% of their league trips this term, while they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six League Cup outings. The away side have shipped 1.7 goals per game on the road in Ligue 1 so far, while they are prone to conceding in these clashes. The last four meetings between these two have each seen both teams score.

We see that form carrying on here, with the visitors conceding in 78% of their trips so far. Saint Etienne have scored in their last four visits to Nimes, keeping just one clean sheet in that time. We’re going with both teams to score in this one, with neither side showing the defensive discipline to keep a clean sheet.

Saint Etienne have won just three of their last 12 matches, so we are struggling to back them here. Meanwhile, Nimes have won only twice in 17 matches in Ligue 1 this term. Neither side have much of a winning record behind them, while the visitors come into this clash with back to back 1-1 draws in this competition. Following that run we’re going for another score draw here, with 1-1 our correct score pick.
