As Nottingham Forest made their comeback to the Premier League last season, Toulouse head coach Philippe Montanier put an end to his team’s time playing in the second division of French football as Les Violets amassed 79 points from 38 games to win the championship.
Toulouse returned to the top flight after a two-year exile by finishing four points ahead of fellow promoted team Ajaccio, but no Violets fan needs to be reminded of their catastrophic 2019–20 Ligue 1 stint, in which they only managed to rack up 13 points before the season was called off.
Last year, Toulouse was denied promotion to Ligue 1 through the playoffs due to the dreaded away goals rule, and Nantes barely escaped with their lives. However, Montanier’s team has already defeated top-flight competition this summer.
Indeed, the weekend’s hosts triumphed over Real Sociedad and Troyes, Nimes, Montpellier HSC in exhibition matches, as well as drawing 3-3 with Osasuna; but, last weekend’s match against Clermont ended in a loss for them. Troyes, Nimes
Despite the fact that the title-winning Frenchman had Les Aiglons solidly in contention for a podium finish and a spot in the Champions League, Christophe Galtier’s move to Nice did not exactly pan out to be the love story that had been hinted at during the early months of the 2021–22 season.
However, Nice was ultimately demoted to fifth and forced to play in the Europa Conference League after winning just six of their last 13 games. They will now face either Maccabi Tel Aviv or Aris in the upcoming playoff round.
The start of Lucien Favre’s second tenure at the Allianz Riviera as he looks to build on his success from his first managerial term came with Nice executives publicly inviting Paris Saint-Germain to make their offer for Galtier, and they did so without hesitation.
Although Les Aiglons played out draws with Cercle Brugge and Roma before losses to Benfica and Fulham, the new manager bounce was not in effect during the preseason. However, they did defeat Torino last time out by a goal to nil.
After spending five games without a victory against Les Violets due to COVID, Nice earned two victories against Toulouse during the 2019–20 Ligue 1 season, and a plethora of intriguing newcomers are prepared to make an impact in black and red.
It’s unclear if Nice’s defense will be as solid as it was this season under Galtier, and Favre hasn’t exactly had a preseason that has given him reason to be confident.
The home crowd may have hoped for an opening-day surprise given Toulouse’s summer victories over elite competition, but Nice can get their first three points of the year thanks to Amine Gouiri and Andy Delort’s attacking flair.
