France Ligue 1 – Nantes v Toulouse Preview (4/11/17)

Match Preview

Nantes aren’t a bad price here and could be backed on a -0.25 handicap at decent enough odds. However, I fear the draw too much. Toulouse are a solid team who aren't in bad form and won't be easy to break down. Nantes aren’t the most free scoring team at the best of times, they couldn't even net against Dijon last week and the first goal (if one is scored) would be absolutely massive here. Toulouse are missing rock at the back, Christopher Julien who is also very dangerous from set pieces. In addition, left wing back Moubandje is injured. This could tip the scales in Nantes’ favour and maybe allow them to sneak another 1-0 win. But I haven't been impressed with them in the last 2-3 weeks, so I’ll leave this one alone. It goes without saying this match also has strong under potential, but the line is 1.75 and too low for me to fancy getting involved.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet: None
