French Football Tips For The Weekend 19th & 20th March
In Nice’s last 18 matches, 17 have seen no more than 2 goals. Indeed Nice are not badly placed in Ligue 1 as they currently occupy 13th place and Les Aiglons always try to keep games tight.
Eric Roy’s opponents this weekend are Toulouse who roughly score 1 goal and concede 1 goal a game on average so far this season. Almost 80% of Alain Casanova’s games at the Stadium Municipal have been shy on goals and 4 of Toulouse’s last 6 games have seen less than 3 goals. The reverse fixture in November only witnessed 2 goals and Saturday’s encounter looks like heading the same way.

Another game in Ligue 1 that looks short on goals this weekend is Montpellier v Lens. Rene Girard’s Montpellier side have only managed 23 goals this term, but MHSC still find themselves in sixth place.
Not surprisingly 4 out of Montpellier’s last 5 games have seen no more than 2 goals and 19th placed Lens don’t really fare much better on the goal front, scoring only 1 more goal in total this season than their opponents. 7 of Lens’ last 8 games have returned under 3 goals and this game should be no different.
