Nantes and Toulouse will square off at the Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau on Saturday evening, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. Nantes were thrashed 3-0 on the road at Bordeaux last time out in Ligue 1, in a game in which they had just two shots on target. Meanwhile, Toulouse fought back from one goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against Nice two weeks ago thanks to a second-half goal from Mathieu Dossevi.

Betting Tips for the game
Nantes have had a decent campaign last year, but they have been a completely different team so far this season. They have won just one of their opening nine league outings and come into this tie on the back of a five-game winless streak. Nantes are without victory on home soil in Ligue 1 at the moment, losing twice in the process.
Toulouse, on the flip side, come into this tie on the back of a five-game winless streak in Ligue 1, although four of these have ended in draws. Toulouse find themselves in a decent 8th spot in the standings, three points behind the top four. Away from home, Toulouse have won just one of their four league trips so far this season, but they are unbeaten in three games at the moment.
Nantes have been terrible in this early part of the season, but they still have a solid head-to-head record against Toulouse. It’s a tricky one, so our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw at odds 3.30.

Three of Toulouse’s last five league outings have ended with the 1-1 scoreline. Meanwhile, Nantes recently managed a 1-1 draw against Lyon. Our correct score fancies a 1-1 draw at odds 6.00.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been some cagey affairs between these two teams over the past few years, with six of the last seven meetings ending with under 2.5 goals. Their recent run of form has seen Nantes score just twice in three home league outings, while Toulouse only managed to score once in their most recent two trips in Ligue 1. Our total goals prediction expect under 2.5 goals at odds 1.66.

First Goalscorer odds
Emiliano Sala has been Nantes’ most prolific striker over the past two season and he is also leading the club’s goalscoring charts in this early part of the campaign. Sala has already netted four goals in eight league appearances and we fancy him to score the opener here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Emiliano Sala at odds 4.75.
