Toulouse vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday 5th October 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse’s draw at the weekend against Rennes was their 3rd in four matches and whilst they are not losing many games recently they are still dropping crucial points that are hurting the club. They come into this game in 7th place with 12 points and are the same number behind the league leaders PSG.
At home Toulouse have failed to win in their last two games with their last match ending in a thrilling 3-2 loss against Saint Etienne. But the club are certainly overdue a win in front of their home fans and victory could see them climb into the top six.
Nice are 13th but a win here would see them go in front of the hosts. The club have won 3 of their last 5 games but have lost 2 of their last 3 games so form is not the best. However in their last game they had to play PSG and even though they were at home they were always expected to lose the game and did.
What is interesting is that 70% of Nice’s points have actually come away from home where they have looked more comfortable in their games. They have only lost once so far this season on the road and have collected 7 points from a possible 12.
Toulouse vs Nice: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here the match finished 1-0 to Toulouse.

Toulouse vs Nice: Prediction
There is good value on this game as the bookmakers see a match that should be competitive and close. Our tip for this game is to see Nice get the away win.
Patrick Vieira’s club have played some very good football in the past few weeks after a slow start and have some good results at this stadium. They are a team whose formation can cause the hosts some problems and they are a team that are happy not to be playing in front of their demanding fans at this time. There is also a good team spirit in the camp.
