The Ligue 1 returns to the fold with another set of fixtures this weekend as Lille take on Nimes at the Stade des Costieres on Saturday. Lille have not been at their best this month and need a victory in this game.

Nimes are rooted to the bottom of the Ligue 1 standings at the moment and have won only three league games this season. The home side was thrashed by Strasbourg by a 5-0 margin during the week and will look to bounce back in this game.

Lille have also endured a difficult week and suffered a shock 2-1 defeat against Angers in their previous game. Les Dogues have slipped to third place in the Ligue 1 table and will need all three points from this fixture.


Nimes vs Lille Head-to-Head

Lille have a near-flawless record against Nimes and have won four games out of a total of six matches in this fixture. Nimes have never defeated Lille in an official fixture and will need to be at their best this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in 2019 and ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw. Nimes were excellent on the day and will need to put in a similar performance in this match.
