Toulouse vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 15th February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municpal (Toulouse).
For many it is a matter of when and not if Toulouse are relegated this season. The club are currently bottom of the league and 12 points from safety. They have lost 4 of their last five games and have won just 3 games all season.
At home whilst they have 3 wins they have only earned 9 points from a possible 33 and they are almost conceding 2 goals per game. Simply put Toulouse are not going to finish 17th or higher.
But there could yet be hope for the club even if it is slim, because if they can finish in 18th then they would enter a play off match with a Ligue 2 team. The problem of course is that they are 11 points from that goal too. With games running out they need to win.
Nice are in 11th place and they lost to Nimes last weekend in what was seen as a surprise result. It also ended a 4 game unbeaten streak, still Nice are in a decent position and another good run should see them right in the mix for a top 6 place.
However the club have only won 2 games on the road and have no wins from their five games and they have drawn back to back ones coming into this encounter.
Toulouse vs Nice: Head to Head
The teams drew 1-1 last season.
Nice have just 1 win here in the last four meetings.
In the last 11 games home or away Toulouse have beaten Nice just twice.
Toulouse vs Nice Prediction
We think Toulouse can surprise Nice. They are a really good price and we don’t think they will lose all of their games from now until the end of the season.
Nice haven’t really been convincing this season and sometimes their players can lack motivation.
Of course, they have the team to come here and win, but they might just underestimate their opponent and that is why we will be backing the away win here and Nice could be set to lose more points this weekend.
