Shared spoils at the break

This fixture promises to be a tough duel between a Ligue 2 and Ligue 1 outfit as both sides look for a place in the French top flight. Nantes narrowly survived relegation after putting in some good performances in the last month to the end of the season, winning four times and losing once in their last five Ligue 1 games. On the other hand, Toulouse put in a shift in the last five games, winning three and drawing twice. With both sides looking better defensively, especially in the last five matches, a deadlocked first-half is our first pick for this game on Betfred.

Nantes are favourites to win

The bookmakers have given Nantes a narrow winning edge of 38% against 33% for Toulouse. Therefore, a 5% chance of winning against Toulouse doesn’t look very convincing. However, our tipsters predict a narrow win for the Nantes in the first leg of the Ligue 1 promotion/relegation playoffs. Our argument for this prediction is premised on the defences of both sides. In the last ten games, Nantes have kept one clean sheet and conceded at most one goal in eight games. Toulouse has equally been a dominant side in their last ten fixtures. However, the hosts seem to do below par defensively compared to Nantes even though they have kept four clean sheets in the last ten games.

Few Goals at full-time

Our last tip backs a low scoreline of fewer than three goals. Nantes should not expect a walkover match against a team that finished 3rd in Ligue 2. Moreover, Toulouse had the third-best in home record of 13 wins, 4 draws and only two losses. Nantes managed 6 away victories, 5 draws and 8 losses on the road. Our benefit of the doubt goes to Nantes for their experience in the top flight. Moreover, the visitors have been quite good on the road against Toulouse, losing only twice in eight trips.

Game Preview: Does Toulouse Stand a Chance against Nantes?

Toulouse hopes for Ligue 1 promotion could well be decided in this home fixture when they play Nantes in the first leg of promotion/relegation playoffs. Check out our detailed match preview below for more details.

Toulouse

Toulouse has defeated Nantes twice at home in previous eight trips, something the hosting manager, Patrice Garande should factor in before this fixture. The two managers have met eleven times, which saw  Patrice Garande get three victories and four draws. A similar trend is reflected in team H2H where the hosts have managed four wins and eight draws in the previous 18 encounters backdated to 2006. For Patrice Garande, averaging 1.93 points per match having lost only nine times and recorded 25 victories and 10 draws in 44 games should speak volumes about the manager’s tactical prowess.

Nantes

Nantes manager, Antoine Kombouare hopes to keep his team’s morale going strong in the promotion/relegation playoffs. Having recorded four victories and four draws against the hosting manager, Kombouare is aware of the tough opposition he expects Patrice Garande. Antoine Kombouare averages 1.50 points per match after 14 games in charge since taking over at the helm in February this year. He has lost five games, drawn three and won six, a fairly good average after such a short of time of being in charge of the visiting squad.
