Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 3-1 win over Zulte-Waregem Nice booked their place in the Europa League knockout stages, but they have been struggling in the Ligue 1 this season. Les Aiglons head into Wednesday’s football match against Toulouse following an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Olympique Lyon and, no doubt, les Gones put extra pressure on Nice coach Lucien Favre. He is in danger of getting fired, but the game against les Pitchouns could be the turning point for the Swiss tactician and his men. Les Aiglons are desperate to escape the danger zone in the Ligue 1 standings and we predict the visitors will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek fixture. Toulouse have been struggling in the French top flight of late as well and they are on a four-game winless run in the national championship. A lively contest is on the horizon and there is every chance both teams will find the net in the Stadium Municipal clash.
