Troyes vs Nimes by TFB
My original intention of this tip was to choose either Troyes & Over 2.5 Goals (2.40) or Troyes & Under 2.5 Goals (3.50) and after weighing up both options I think either is very possible in tonight's game. Therefore I have decided to play it relatively safe and gone for the straight win with an Asian Handicap.
There is no doubt that Troyes are big favourites for this match after beating Dijon & Nancy (both promotion chasers) 1-0 at home recently. Their home record is a respectable 5-2-1 so far in the league which includes a 4-1 victory over Niort who are currently on the same points as Nimes (19).
Only 2 Troyes home games this season have resulted in over 2.5 goals! Added to the fact this is generally a low scoring league anyway I do like the under 2.5 goals option but looking at Nimes most recent results they have netted a few times with 3 against Niort and 3 against Le Havre.
Nimes general form though is poor, especially away from home, losing 4 out of their last 5 games against some teams equally as poor. They have only scored 4 goals away from home this season so I can only see them getting 1 at the most vs. a good side like Troyes.
No major team news to report so Troyes should be strong tonight.
Why the handicap? Because Nimes' 4 recent away losses have been to the scores of 2-0, 2-0, 3-0 & 2-0.
