Toulouse vs Nice
France – Coupe de France
Date: Saturday, 5th January 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse has to take on an in-form Nice at the Stadium Municipal in the Coupe de France this weekend. The hosts would have preferred a different opponent considering their disaster of a three-month period that just seems like to be over.
Nice had a polar opposite time frame during the last two months of 2018. The team will have to work on their problems at the front line and be a little more clinical. But other than that their season looks bright.
Toulouse will have the psychological disadvantage of knowing that they have played an extra game compared to the three teams around them in the league table, and will likely be pushed further downwards once the teams get up to speed.

Toulouse vs Nice Prediction
In their last 17 matches, all Toulouse could scrape up was three wins. The team has been a mess for the past few months, and their home record is an even greater exhibit for that. The team is currently on a run of eight winless matches at home ground.
Against Nice, that had been on a run of nine unbeaten matches, before their loss to Strasbourg last weekend, Toulouse will find it hard to do something worthwhile. Nice also had a five-match winning streak during this stretch.
The Eaglets have lost only twice on the road this season, and both came against top-tier teams from Ligue 1. It is expected that Nice will dominate the hosts and win at least one half of the game. The Les Violets will have their weak record at home targeted, and most likely Nice will survive the game with a clean sheet.
