Nantes vs Toulouse
Coupe de France
Date: Tuesday, 5 February 2019
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes look to end poor run of results when they welcome Toulouse for the cup fixture this Tuesday.
The Canaries defeated low league side Sannois on the weekend on the back of four match winless run in the domestic league. They lost three games on the trot 0-1 before snatching a draw against St-Etienne last week-week, and these kind of results is hardly expected to do any wonders on their confidence.
On the other hand, Toulouse went down fighting 1-2 at a much improved Monaco side that saw a managerial side recently. The Les Violets are doing well since the winter break having bagged 3 wins and 2 draws in the six games prior to this weekend.
Nantes vs Toulouse: Head to Head
Nantes won 4-0 at this stadium when they met Toulouse in a Ligue 1 fixture earlier this season.
The result stretched Toulouse’s win-less run at this stadium to 4 games; 2 draws and 2 losses.
Eight of their last 11 meetings saw both teams scoring. However, only 3 of those saw over 2.5 goals.
It is also worth to note that Nantes are unbeaten against Toulouse both home and away since 2014, a streak of 8 games that produced 3 wins and 5 draws.
Nantes vs Toulouse: Prediction
It is fair to say that Nantes are in desperate need of a win after some lacklustre performances since the winter break. To achieve this, they must improve their scoring form as the team netted just twice in the last 6 outings.
Toulouse suffered a narrow defeat to Monaco on the weekend, but they are easily the confident side in this tie considering the three wins bagged from the last 5 away fixture. Moreover, they have scored in 5 consecutive away games and could prove a handful to Nantes this Tuesday.
Nantes vs Toulouse: Betting Tips
My recommended best pick for this match is BTTS priced at 9/10 (1.90).
I find alternate options far and few, however brave punters can try the ft correct score 1-1 for 6.50 odd.
