Lyon v Toulouse Preview and Predictions

Lyon v Toulouse French Ligue 1 Predictions 1st April 2018

Lyon v Toulouse
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 1st April 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).

Lyon got a terrific result before the international break when they beat traditional rivals Marseille 3-2 at the Stade Velodrome. It meant a lot to the club given that they scored in the final minute. That result took Lyon to within 2 points of Marseille as they both want that final Champions League position of third place.

Now Lyon will turn their attentions to Toulouse and they will be expected to win this game at home. However Lyon’s form at home has been questionable with too many draws, there has been 5 so far. And fans are expecting a good solid win from the team not by just one goal margins as has been the case of late.

Toulouse are in poor form with 4 draws from their past five games and have not won for weeks. They are in 17th place and will be involved in a relegation dog fight if, as expected, they lose this game. Away form has the club with 1 win in their last five although that win was highly impressive as it came against Nice.

Lyon v Toulouse: Head to Head

  • Lyon has scored 17 goals against Toulouse in the last 6 matches
  • Lyon has won 6 matches in a row
  • Home or away Toulouse has just 1 win over Lyon in the last 10 meetings
  • There is an 80% chance to see over 2.5 goals based on recent results

Lyon v Toulouse: Prediction

With some risk we feel that this is the game that Lyon will let loose and give their fans what they want, goals. Lyon has a great record over Toulouse and they owe their fans not just the win but a very good performance.
