Nimes host Marseille in Ligue 1 on Friday. The Crocodiles have problems at both ends of the pitch with a confident Marseille side tipped to take all three points.

Nimes Form

Jérôme Arpinon’s side picked up a 1-0 win at Reims thanks to a Renaud Ripart penalty. It was a fortunate victory after having just 29% possession, 6-16 shots and 64% pass success.

The Crocodiles lost 3-0 at Monaco on Sunday. They were 1-0 down when Lucas Deaux was sent off in the 69th minute, another poor performance where they had 32% possession and 0.21 expected goals.

Nimes Team News


Centre-back Anthony Briancon and left back Birger Meling are injured for Nimes.

Midfielder Lucas Deaux is suspended after being sent off against Monaco and Sidy Sarr is injured. 

Marseille Form


Marseille have won their last four Ligue 1 matches. They can go top of the table if they win their two matches in hand.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side beat Nantes 3-1 after goals to Florian Thauvin, Dimitri Payet and Darío Benedetto established a 3-0 lead. They bossed the game with 2.75-0.32 expected goals.

Marseille finally won in the UEFA Champions League with a 2-1 victory against Olympiakos on Tuesday. They overcame a half time deficit with Payet scoring two second half penalties.
