Toulouse vs Nimes
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse had a nightmare start to their Ligue 1 campaign when they travelled to Marseille and lost 4-0. It meant that they needed to get a positive result when they returned home the following week and they were able to do just that when they beat Bordeaux 2-1. They have their second game at home in a row and will be looking to pick up another win and another three points.
Alongside Reims, Nimes have come up from Ligue 2 this season and been brilliant. They scored 4 goals away to Angers to beat them 4-3 on the opening day of the season and then followed that up with a stunning 3-1 win against Marseille. The goals have meant that the club are in 2nd place and have scored the most goals in the league so far with 7, not even PSG can currently keep up.
Nimes have been a breath of fresh air and are not afraid to attack and can cause problems. Naivety may end up playing a part as the season goes on and Toulouse have many years of experience in Ligue 1 to try and pray on that when the two teams meet on Saturday evening.

Toulouse vs Nimes: Prediction
Toulouse can be a different team at home but we have to give a lot of respect to Nimes so our main bet here will be to see both teams to score. Nimes will certainly have plenty of chances and for smaller stakes we will back over the 2.5 goal market. This should be a very entertaining game as Nimes will only have one thing on their mind and that will be to attack, but that could also expose them at the back hence our betting choice.
Toulouse vs Nimes: Bet Tips
