Toulouse vs Nantes – Ligue 1: In one of the matches that opens up this Tuesday of matches in France, counting towards Ligue 1’s 21st round
The local side Toulouse and the visiting side Nantes will face off in Toulouse, at the Stadium Municipal, on a match between two teams that have already met once this season, with that encounter finishing with a 2-1 win at home for Nantes, in November.
The home team is in the penultimate place of the league, with 19 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 5th place with 33 points.
The home side is making a season far from peaceful, being on a depressing 19th place and looking like they won’t be able to turn their situation around lately, although things aren’t that bad,
because they are just 2 points away from leaving the relegation zone.
Still, the team is coming off a globally negative streak of results, only having won 1 of their last 5 matches, having conceded goals in practically all of them.
As for the Ranieri team, they are making a fantastic season so far, following up on the good period they lived last season, with Sérgio Conceição in charge,
having only the classic contenders to the Ligue 1’s title ahead of them, and still being able to qualify for a European competition in case they do well.
The team has one of the worst offensive records of the competition, but they also have one of the best defensive records.
Toulouse vs Nantes – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Against a Nantes that is one of the most consistent teams on the defensive point of view and on a match with one of the teams in the relegation zone, I can only expect a close match with few or even no goals.
