Caen will welcome Nîmes to Stade Michel d’Ornano for a matchday 24 fixture in France Ligue 2. The last meeting on 28th August 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Caen has won 2 matches, and Nîmes triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 1.86 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.
Caen’s latest fixture against Nancy ended in an away 1-1 draw. I expected more from their creative midfielders, but it just wasn’t their day. Caen was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 62nd minute.
Nîmes’s recent game against Dunkerque ended in a home 0-1 loss. Les crocodiles’s strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.
So far, Caen plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.18 points per away game on average compared to 1.08 points at home. Although Caen is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
Nîmes has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Nîmes has collected 1.55 points on average per away game, compared to 1.25 at home.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Nîmes.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.4 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 49% of Caen’s home and Nîmes’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
