Reason For Toulouse VS Nice Betting Tips
Nice will be able to keep alive their slim hopes of snatching the Ligue 1 title with a win at Toulouse this weekend. The visitors have had a remarkable season and are in a position few expected them to be in at this stage, just 4 points from the summit of the table behind Monaco and PSG. They are not likely to win the championship, but they can be rightly proud of what they have done throughout 2016/17 in competing with 2 giants.
Nice’s form has been helped by the resurgence of Italian international and former Inter, AC Milan and Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli, who is now the club’s top scorer on 13 goals. His hot streak in front of goal has been all the more important due to Alassane Plea’s injury. Plea’s 11 goals have been vital but Balotelli has surprisingly been able to take over the responsibility and is thriving. The side have only lost 2 games all season in league action and with strong additions they may be able to run the top 2 even closer in 2017/18.
Toulouse meanwhile have dropped off the pace in recent weeks and now find themselves in 11th position. They have now won just 3 of their last 11 matches and the goals have dried up for the likes of Martin Braithwaite and Ola Toivonen, who are on 10 and 6 respectively. Their home record is strong on the whole however, having won 50% of matches at Stadium Municipal so they will not fear Nice.
With Toulouse faltering of late, our advice is to back a Nice Clean Sheet Yes bet at odds of 9/4 with bet365.
For our correct score prediction, we think Nice will win the game 2-0. That bet is valued at odds of 12/1 also with bet365.
