Wasps Preview – Can Wasps deliver a win?

Wasps walk into one of the toughest European matches that they could get on Saturday afternoon.

They will step out at the Coventry Building Society Arena to face the reigning European champions, Toulouse.

In the match outright, Wasps are 9/4 for rugby betting* (odds recorded 17:31 GMT on January 11th, 2022).

But can the Premiership side defy those odds?

Things have not looked great for Wasps so far in this European Champions Cup campaign.

In their other one match played so far in the Pool stage, Wasps fell to a home defeat against Irish side Munster.

That is back to back losses in the competition that Wasps have suffered, following a defeat against Clermont in last season’s edition.

It has also been back to back home defeats for them in the European Champions Cup.

Our betting prediction:
Toulouse 1-10 winning margin

One positive that Wasps can take away is that they have never lost three in a row at home in the competition.

The head to head is split evenly between Wasps and Toulouse.

It’s been four wins each and two draws in that sequence.

Wasps have suffered only one defeat in their last five against the French giants in the tournament (W3 D1).

That one defeat in the sequence happened when they last hosted them during the 2018/19 season.

A look at the bigger current form for Wasps sees that the Premiership club have lost seven of their last nine in all competitions.


Toulouse Preview – Champions to land the win in Coventry?

Stade Toulousain have played one Pool stage match so far in their title defence of the European Champions Cup.

They lifted the title last season with a narrow victory over La Rochelle at Twickenham.

Their one match played so far in this campaign was away at Cardiff.

Stade Toulousain comfortably took a 39-7 away success in that one.

The win over Cardiff is the only victory that Toulouse have taken in their last three matches (home and away in all tournaments).

They are a little patchy at W4 L4 in their last eight matches across all competitions.

In the match outright for European Champions Cup rugby betting, Toulouse are the 1/3 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 17:31 GMT on January 11th, 2022).

Toulouse do boast some fantastic away form in the Heineken Cup.
