Lille vs Toulouse
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
It’s very rare for Lille to lose at home but that is what happened last weekend when Marseille beat them 2-1. That was a big blow to Lille’s Champions League qualification hopes and the club have only lost two times at home this season, they are no expected to lose a 3rd at the weekend.
Lille will play bottom club Toulouse and will be odds on to win this game and the major favourites. The Marseille defeat stopped a 3-game winning run so the club are in very good form otherwise and they are also in 4th place just one point behind Rennes. The club need to keep winning because Monaco are breathing down their necks to snatch a possible European place.
Toulouse are last in the league and have lost 3 games in a row coming into this one. What at least has been notable of the club in recent weeks is that even though they are clearly the poorest side in Ligue 1 this season they are not getting beaten by big scores. Last weekend they lost to Nice 2-0 but did have two players sent off and some recent defeats have only finished 1-0.
The away side are 14 points from safety, and they are all but down barring one of the greatest comebacks ever seen, and that simply does not look likely.
Lille vs Toulouse: Head to Head

Lille vs Toulouse: Prediction
Lille are around 1.44 which is understandable given the seasons both clubs are having. However, history says that Toulouse usually raise their game against them, so backing the straight home win at short odds gives us no value. We will look into different markets then.
One we will pick out is Victor Osimhen to score the first goal. The Lille player has been on great form lately and we think he can add to his tally this weekend.
