Toulouse – Nice Preview

The game between Guingamp and Toulouse last week was very open until Guingamp got a red card and decided to concentrate all forces in defense (Guingamp won 2-1).

In-fact most of Toulouse’s recent games have been open, especially if opponents are also willing to take part in such a game (in the last 3 rounds Toulouse have conceded 8 goals and scored 5).

The offensive department seems to be in good form with attacking midfielder Trejo and forwards Ben Yedder and Braithwaite scoring in the last 3 rounds. They also have young Pesic on the bench who is full of vitality each time he enters the field.

Unfortunately for Toulouse in defense things look pretty bad with fullback Ninkov very slow and easily outrun and central defender Kana-Biyik walking around the pitch without any intention of tackling opponents.

Since both Genevois and Gomis were out injured Nice were forced to start with midfielder Digard in central defense. Although he was hesitant at times Digard made a decent game and even managed to find the net (Nice won 2-1 against Lens). At the moment there is no information regarding the conditions of Genevois and Gomis so there is a big possibility that Digard will start again in central defense.

Guests will also miss fullback Amavi who is suspended.

Toulouse’s good offensive form and Nice’s young attacking department should be reasons for an open and entertaining game. Fans inside the stadium should see a few goals and definitely won’t regret coming to the game. Over 2.75 goals at 2.13

UPDATE: Toulouse will miss forward Braithwaite but welcome back striker Roman after a long period of injury. Nice will once again miss defenders Genevois and Gomis. Same bet
