Bordeaux vs Nimes
Bordeaux was in a really great form all over November, finally getting some momentum especially in their home matches.
They were even really close to getting a victory away to Reims last weekend as well, but in the end, just took a point in a 1:1 game.
They took the lead via Maja in the 27th minute but played completely passively since then. It was simply too much and an unneeded defensive approach from them, not even changing something when they stood to play with a man more in the last twenty minutes of the match.
Of course, the price had to be paid - finally with an equalizer in the second minute of added time with a goal from Dia.
The side now sharing the fourth position with really good chances to start being more competitive in the Euro tickets race.
The hosts will miss suspended duo of defensive midfielder Tchouameni (11/0) and left-full back Benito (13/1). Forward Briand (13/4) is injured, while doubtful remains midfielder Kamano (8/1).
After two consecutive defeats, away to Strasbourg and Angers, players of Nimes managed to get only a point in a 1:1 game at home against Metz.
They were actually set as a favorite and were set to win, however that's not how the game went.
In quite an even first halftime, the guests were the ones who got the lead, but a bit better approach from the hosts was seen in the repetition and the equalizer came pretty much deservedly via Ripart, with neither of the teams willing to risk much towards the end.
With this point, they now share the last position together with Toulouse but are also just three points behind the safe zone. On the road, they have a 0-4-4 record trying to preserve their sheet firstly with quite passive approach.
The guests should only miss forward Depres who didn't perform so far in League 1.
Nimes have failed to win their last 9 away matches (Ligue 1).
Nimes is showing some terrible form away from home and very little can be changed in this one either. Bordeaux had to react better against Reims having the lead, but playing now in front of their own fans, they should be eager to get another victory.
The guests simply don't seem that active in attack when playing away, in order to match up against Bordeaux this time.
