Nice vs Toulouse
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 21st December 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveria.
Nice come into this game in 14th place and it has clearly been a difficult campaign for the club where one week they look back to their best and the next look very average.
Last weekend the club drew 0-0 away to Brest which was a good point and they haven’t lost for two matches. The league is still close and a win here would take them back into the top 10. It’s all about home form for Nice with 17 of their 24 points so far coming at home. They have won 3 of their last four games and are undefeated in four games at home.
Toulouse are in bottom place with 12 points and are five points from safety. They have lost their last 5 games in a row and from their last 10 matches they have 3 points, they look odds on to be relegated.
Their last match ended in a 1-0 defeat against Reims and they are conceding on average 2 goals a game. A win could take them into 19th place if Nimes lose or draw.

Nice vs Toulouse: Prediction
Toulouse haven’t won yet away from home and this will be a very difficult game for them. However we feel that they are due something and the fact is that surprises always happen.
Nice have been solid at home of course but at the same time they have not been wholly convincing overall this season. This is why we will opt to take on Toulouse to win the game with a handicap start. It is risky but the value is decent.
Many fixtures between the two have ended in draws and this would cover our selection too. Because of the risk involved this will be our only pick for this game.
Nice vs Toulouse: Bet Tips:
