Still, the table of the French Ligue 1 has an oblique position. Due to security concerns, countless games had to be postponed in December as a precautionary measure. Fortunately, these times are over, but a few weeks ago a scheduled Ligue 1 game was not started again. In order for Stade Rennes to have more time to prepare before the Europa League match, the game of Matchday 27 was postponed. After the retirement of Rennes in the Europa League, the catch-up game is on the program this week. It comes to a duel between newly promoted Nimes and Rennes!
Football Betting Tips Nimes vs Rennes
In the catch-up game of the 27th match day, two table neighbors face each other. The host from Nimes is currently ranked eleventh of the French Ligue Une with 40 points, the Coupe de France finalist from Brittany has two more points on the credit side and yet is direct table neighbor. Although both teams are in the midfield of the league, the winner of this game may well still make low hopes for the Europa League. Depending on the outcome of the Coupe de France Finals, fifth place would be enough for the Europa League. Stade Rennes would only have three points behind with a win! In the duel of the table neighbors, the bookmakers have no real favorites! Between Nimes and Rennes quotas are offered at a similar level. The game starts on Tuesday evening at 19 o’clock.
Nimes – Statistics & Current Form
Four times, the red and white from the Department Gard in the more than 100-year club history French vice-champion. However, hardly anyone remembers that, finally succeeded in 1972. Last season, the team of head coach Bernard Blaquart again vice-champion, this time in Ligue 2, and was able to return after 25 years of abstinence into French Ligue 1.
The climber started the season with two victories and never really had to deal with the descent throughout the season. With currently 40 points from 30 games, the league is already secured. The lead on relegation place 16 is already comfortable 16 counters. Plans for another year in the upper house are already in full swing. In recent weeks, it was limited to the Blaquart Elf as desired. The 2-0 win over relegation candidate SM Caen last weekend was the first full-time success after four games without a win (one draw, three defeats). Despite the weak results of the newly promoted in recent weeks repeatedly convince by a strong offensive. With the exception of the 0-3 defeat against PSG Nimes Olympique has scored at least one goal in each of the last eight competitive matches. With an average of 2.90 goals per game, the games of the riser are extremely entertaining. For at least three goals in the catch-up game between Nimes and Rennes odds of 1.96 are offered. This was the right decision in five of the last seven games.
43 goals in 30 games definitely speak for a strong offensive. Interesting aspect on the sidelines is the fact that the top three scorers (Denis Bouanga, Antonin Bobichon and Rachid Alioui) scored only five goals each. A striker with a built-in Torgarantie is missing, but on the offensive is the climber extremely variable and therefore difficult to defend. 44 goals mean not only a negative goal difference, but are also the proof of a weak defensive!
Expected formation of Nimes:
↳ Bernardoni – Maouassa, Lybohy, Briancon, Paquiez – Savannah – Ripart, Bobichon, Valls, Bouanga – Guillaume

Rennes – Statistics & Current Form
The sensation was close enough to touch the UEFA European Football League team from Brittany. After the 3-1 home victory against Arsenal, the Stephan-Elf had beaten 3-0 in the second leg and said goodbye to the international business. Ideally, however, this farewell is only a short-lived, because in addition to the theoretical possibility to secure again in the Ligue 1 a Europa League ticket, the tenth-table of Ligue 1 is also in the final of the Coupe de France. In the past week, the Underdog managed a surprising 3-2 away win at Olympique Lyon. Stade Rennes will face defending champion Paris Saint-Germain on 27 April!
While the achievements in the cup and the Europa League were very satisfactory lately, it ran only conditionally in the league. Only one of the last six league games (against SM Caen) could be won, in the remaining five games the Stephan-Elf reached three draws and had to give twice beaten. There was also a point difference this past weekend against Angers, while Rennes had to cope only in the 92nd minute, the bitter 3: 3 compensation. It was an extremely entertaining game in which Rennes striker Hatem Ben Arfa made the headlines. When he scored to 1: 0 he almost nibbled the entire Angers defensive!
While Stade Rennes has enormous quality on offense, the defense is still not solid. A goal difference of 42:40 is on a similar level as that of Nimes. Two thirds of all away games (ten out of 15) ended with over 2.5! The results in foreign countries were largely disappointing, with only four of the 15 away games won. The last success in the foreign land is already almost three months back – on January 13, there was a victory in the canaries of FC Nantes. Given these numbers, a tip between Nimes and Rennes is not recommended for guests with odds below 3.00!

↳ Koubek – Doumbia, Mexer, Nyamsi, Zeffane – Bourigeaud, Andre, Gelin, Sarr – Nian, Ben Arfa
