Caen welcome the visitors Nimes in the French Ligue 1 – Round 16. The match will be held on Wednesday, December 5th at the Stade Michel d'Ornano (Caen).
Caen are currently sitting 16th in the French Ligue 1 standings. The team do not score often; they could hit in 5 of 10 latest matches only. Wins are also not common for the club – in 15 matches, they got only 2 victories over Dijon and Amiens who find themselves yet below Caen in the table. As for the hosts’ squad for the coming encounter, the striker Rodrigue Casimir Ninga, who has made 3 goals in this season, will not play, which will affect the general outcome. Going by the team’s results, they did not gain pace yet and are weak in attack. Caen prefer to shut out, and they scored over 3 goals only in 3 of their 10 latest fixtures.

Nimes have started to win more often lately, but most of the wins were against the bottom-table teams. They don’t seem to have any ambitions regarding their progression to the Europa League, as they don’t score too much. No-goal series was followed by a winning streak, but those were the wins against the most leaking clubs of the league. Nimes occupy nearly the mid of the table, sitting 10th. Of their last 10 matches, they scored over 3 goals 3 times only, same as their opponent. Considering the home pitch factor, we believe it will be difficult for Nimes to score in the coming encounter.
The Wednesday match will see a meeting of the two opponents who are not very fond of the effective play. The main Caen’s concern is not to drop out to the relegation zone. Though the margin on their win is growing now, their motivation is expected to be higher than that of the opponent. The hosts reside in the mid of the table as for now and have enough points not to go down to the drop zone. They play well against hopeless Dijon and Amiens mostly. So, we believe the Stade Michel d'Ornano will see the standard teams’ scenario with not many goals scored. Based on the above, it is wise to predict Under 2.5 goals.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
