Who will claim the first competitive Win between Toulouse and Nimes?
Toulouse and Nimes are familiar sides, but this is their first ever competitive match between the teams. A friendly less than a month ago didn’t bear fruit so we would hopefully see a few goals in this one.
Toulouse survived relegation playoff to remain in French top flight, and they started poorly this season with a 4 – 0 thumping by Marseille, with problems evident in defence and attack. They haven’t had much practice ahead of the new season, having played Ajaccio twice in a playoff fixture and once in a friendly. Coach Alain Casanova has brought in reinforcements, but Toulouse will need time to settle in.
New arrival Nimes made a phenomenal start with a hard-fought 4 - 3 win away at Angers. Team morale should be high in their next away game. Striker Renaud Ripart opened his account in Ligue 1, and he should get his name on the scoresheet given a chance again.
Toulouse has much to do to get themselves ready for this game, while Nimes have already called out opponents with their aggression and ambition. Three points for Nimes.
Key Match Facts
- Toulouse has conceded four goals in their last two games.
- Nimes has only failed to score twice in their last five games.
