Toulouse – Nice SOCCER PICKS
In the rankings, Toulouse and Nice are six spots apart, but the teams are separated by only two runs and a few goals. Because of the changeable form of both teams there is no clear favorite for this match; does one of the teams still win or are the points shared after ninety minutes?
With only three points from the last four games and no victories, the Alain Casanove team does not perform too well. Last week against Stade Rennais, Toulouse ran the whole first half behind the facts and then striker Aaron Leya also took a red card before half time, which of course did not benefit the game in the second half. In the end, Stade Rennais needed a penalty to break the game, after which eighteen-year-old Jean-Clair Todibo saved a point in the final stages for Toulouse.
Leya was the bitten dog after last week’s game because he already took a yellow card before half time due to a failed tackle on the ball, after which he got to see a red card by protesting against the referee. With his goal against AS Monaco who saved a point for his team, Leya managed to make love with fans of le Téfécé despite his disappointing effectiveness, but from now on the fans will undoubtedly be critical of the striker who only twice in over five hundred minutes. managed to score.
The match of Toulouse in the last three matches is very remarkable: against Angers, the team of Casanova as against Stade Rennais the whole match was the lesser and hardly any chances were created (only two shots on goal in these two games together) and a draw was achieved, while Toulouse did manage well in the match against AS Saint-Étienne, which was eventually lost by 2-3. So it seems that if Toulouse succeeds in creating opportunities, much more is given away in the back.
Last week it was Olympique Nice’s turn to welcome Paris Saint-Germain in-house and as expected, it was lost. Patrick Vieira chose to leave the men who have to make goals, Mario Balotelli and Wylan Cyprien, on the bench and play in a 5-3-2 system on the counter. After the opening goal of PSG, Vieira had no other choice to send his goalties into the field, but this did not help either. In the second half, Balotelli did not get a red card for the change, but his attack partner Cyprien. No shots of Nice then fell on goal of more, meaning Vieira’s team went down with 0-3.
Wylan Cyprien made his debut at the age of seventeen in the main power of RC Lens (at that time in the Ligue 2) and then managed to play over one hundred league matches in four seasons for Lens in which he found ten times, including seven times in his last season. Olympique Nice then retired the midfielder, after which the Frenchman’s game did not improve. In his first season for Nice, Cyprien found eight more times, last season it was only twice and this season the counter is still dry. In addition, Cyprien already managed to win three yellow cards and a red card this season, while in his previous two seasons at Nice he only received two. Due to the lack of Cyprien it is best that a player such as Bassem Srarfi once again get a chance in the basics, but whether that resolves the problems of Nice?
