This Sunday, the TFC drew against Nice (1-1). On paper, this result is good for Toulouse and starts their season rather well. But by analyzing the statistics, Tèf should have won his match.
In fact, the men of Philippe Montanier had three clear chances (against one for the Niçois): the shot from Dallinga on the post alone facing the goalkeeper, the head of this same Dutchman without the goalkeeper following the cross of Nathan Ngoumou and the goal. The OGCN had only one clear chance, despite several good chances (shot from Gouiri at the start of the game, the crossbar, Delort’s free kick or even the double situation at the end of the game).
To better understand this notion, Opta, a company specializing in data, gives this definition: “A clear chance is a situation in which a player should reasonably be expected to score, usually in a one-on-one or very close-range scenario when the ball has a clear path to goal and there is low to moderate pressure on the shooter. Penalties are always considered a clean chance.“
After the meeting, Damien Comolli let his players know that they should have taken the three points. The president knows it perfectly, the TFC is still riding on its superb momentum from the end of last season and will have to accumulate an interesting mattress of points during the first days of this 2022-2023 season. Four teams will go in the cart to Ligue 2 next June.
