This Sunday sees 14th-paced Saint-Etienne host 19th-placed Nimes at the Geoffroy Stadium in their Ligue 1 fixture.

The hosts will be confident of winning as they have not lost to Nimes in their last four Ligue 1 meetings. They will hope that history repeats itself this weekend.

The two sides have locked horns 22 times since 1980 and the Sainté have won 11 of those meetings.

Nimes have just three wins to their name while eight games between these two sides have ended in a stalemate.

Saint-Etienne vs Nimes Prediction

Saint Etienne have not lost in their last four league games and even got back to winning ways last time around with a 2-1 victory against Bordeaux.

On the other hand, Nimes have lost four games in a row, failing to find the back of the net in each of their four defeats.

We expect the hosts to comfortably record a second consecutive win in the league when they host Nimes on Sunday night.

Prediction: Saint-Etienne 2-0 Nimes
