ANG vs NIM Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Nimes have the opportunity to break into the top half of the table when they host Angers in the Ligue 1 clash at Stade des Costières, in Nimes France, on Wednesday night (IST).
Nimes are enjoying life back in the top tier of French Football for the first time since the 1992-93 season when they got relegated into tier 2. It’s been a long time and the club won the promotion to Ligue 1 again after finishing second in Ligue 2.
And it has been some ride, some unexpected results, some uncanny performances which brought unthinkable outcomes. Was it possible to even think that Nimes would be beating the giant Marseille 3-1 in their only second game of the season? Not many would have thrown their money towards the newest toddlers of the Ligue 1 in that particular match.
With 7 wins from the first 20 games, Nimes are sitting 12th in the table, nine points away from the relegation zone.
The hosts lost the last game 0-1 at home against Toulouse, their fourth on the road in the league. But it was their only third loss in the last 8 matches but quite importantly they have won five times in that period. Good return and they should be safe for the season.
Angers meanwhile feel like a regular in the Ligue 1 since getting the promotion in the 2014-15 season. Since then the club has achieved great success in the pitch.
They achieved their highest ever position in the Ligue 1 when they finished ninth in the 2015-16 season. Then came the zenith for the Angers Football Club as they made it into the final of 2017 Coupe de France against Paris Saint-Germain. They lost the match 0-1 courtesy of an own goal in the injury time of 2nd half.
But at the moment, they are really struggling for results. In fact, they could slip down into the relegation zone if the results don’t improve in the next few weeks.
At the moment, they are placed 14th in the table, with 23 points from the 20 games. Talking about their form, they have won just once in the last eight games. But importantly, that win came in the last match, a 1-0 home win against Nantes.

ANG vs NIM Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Angers should feel confident after that last gasp goal them a precious 1-0 home win in the last game. How many times we have seen that a team builds a good run on those sorts of performances and Angers are a good team, especially for the mid-table teams.
Having said that, Nimes have been punching above their weights all season, particularly in the last two months or so. And it will be interesting to see how long they can persist with those kinds of shows.
We are looking at a draw here.
