Toulouse won Ligue 2 last season, making them eligible to play in the French top flight. The team thoroughly prepared for the new Ligue 1, having played seven friendly matches, five of which were victories, one draw and one loss. Among the memorable ones were a 6-1 smashing defeat over Troyes, a narrow victory over Real Sociedad (1-0), a 5-4 victory over Montpellier and a 3-3 draw with Osasuna.
Last season, Nice fell just short of qualifying for the Europa League group stage, but after losing to Rennes on goal difference, they can only settle for Conference League qualification. It is worth noting that the visitors held far from the most successful preparation for the new season. They played in five friendlies, scored only one win (over Torino 1-0), played twice in a draw and suffered two defeats, with the total score of 2-7.
Expert Betting Tips
It's hard to pick a favorite in this matchup. At first glance, Nice is superior in class. Last season they still fought for the European Cups, while Toulouse fought for promotion. That said, judging by their preparation, the hosts are more serious, plus they have the home advantage, which will give them some confidence. On this basis, we believe that each opponent will score at least one goal.
