Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Nice win

Odds: 11/8 @ Bet 365

Hoping to continue their impressive record on home soil, Nice will host fellow strugglers Toulouse on Friday night.

Starting with Patrick Vieira’s side, while Friday’s hosts might be coming off the back of a 1-0 loss away at Marseille and have now lost three of their last four outings, Nice’s form at the Allianz Riviera has remained consistent. Although any chance of a European push appears to be off the cards this year, the former Arsenal legend has seen his side win their last four Ligue 1 matches on home soil and are yet to be beaten in Nice since the middle of November. It is also worth noting that Vieira’s side have gone nearly 500 minutes without conceding a goal at home and have not conceded a goal at the Allianz Riviera in 2019.

As for the visitors, while Toulouse did manage to pick up a 1-0 win over leading relegation contenders Guingamp last weekend, it does not cover what has been a worrying 2019 for Alain Casanova’s side. Recording just a single Ligue 1 victory since the turn of the New Year, Le Téfécé look destined for another finish in the bottom half of the table. The key area that Toulouse have struggled with this season has undoubtedly been their form away from the Stadium de Toulouse. The Purples have lost their last four matches on the road and have conceded 11 goals on that losing run.
