Toulouse Prediction

Toulouse sit in 14th place in Ligue 1 and thanks to recent wins at Reims and Lille, have so far managed to keep their heads above water and avoided dropping down into the relegation dogfight that ensues below them.

The hosts hold a four point cushion ahead of the relegation play-off spot and Dijon ahead of this midweek action in the French top flight, but although they’ve registered the aforementioned wins over Reims and Lille, these were both away from home and away from the pressures of performing at their Stadium de Toulouse I fancy.

Toulouse hold a home record which stands at 2-3-4 10/14 which not only includes no wins from their last seven matches on home turf, but also three defeats from their last four with losses to Montpellier, Amiens and Strasbourg.


Key-Facts – Toulouse v Lyon

  • Toulouse have lost 4 of their last 6 matches at home
  • Lyon have lost just once in their last 10 matches in Ligue 1
  • Lyon are unbeaten in their last 4 away matches in Ligue 1


Lyon Prediction

By contrast, visitors Lyon occupy 3rd place in Ligue 1 and could move within one point of second placed Lille and an automatic Champions League spot if they take all three points in Wednesday night’s clash at Toulouse, so there’s plenty on offer for Bruno Genesio’s team ahead of this encounter.

Lyon have suffered just one defeat in their last 10 matches overall in the French top flight which was a surprise 2-0 loss at home to Rennes, but they’ve put together a promising four-match unbeaten sequence away from home which will give them confidence on this trip too.

Lyon possess an away record of 3-3-2 14/14 which at first glance doesn’t appear to be too impressive, but recent wins at Angers and Guingamp along with points at 2nd placed Lille and 5th placed Montpellier have seen an improvement in recent travels.

Midfielder Aouar (6 goals) along with an impressive forward line of Traore (6 goals), Depay (5 goals), Dembele and Fekir (4 goals apiece) should make life very difficult for Toulouse here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Toulouse appear to perform better away from home so they’re expected to have their work cut out against a strong Lyon outfit tonight.
