Lyon vs Toulouse
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 26th January 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.

Lyon’s objective is to finish in a European spot or at least 3rd in the table and they are currently in 7th and 7 points from that target. They have lost just once in their last four games and they have beaten Bordeaux 2-1 before the break for the cup matches.

The club will be big favourites to beat Toulouse who are bottom of the table and have been poor this season. Lyon’s home form though has not been good and from 9 games here they have won just 3 and have lost their last two games in a row. Still they have been good in defence and conceded just 6 goals all season at Groupama Stadium.

Toulouse are last and 8 points from safety, Though they have time on their side they look doomed for relegation. Their last game ended in a 5-2 defeat to newly promoted Brest and the club were at home. On the road Toulouse have the worst record in the league with no wins and have earned just 3 points from a possible 30. They have conceded 25 goals which is the most away from home.

Lyon vs Toulouse: Head to Head

Lyon vs Toulouse: Prediction

Lyon have let people down this season with surprise defeats, but this is one of those games that does feel like a banker home win, Toulouse are simply too poor and playing one of the strongest sides in Ligue 1. The odds on a home win are around 1.20 though and not worth our time as there is no value.

We do think Lyon are capable of scoring a few goals though so we will take on this market. Also Moussa Dembele is in really good form and it may be worth backing him to add to his goal tally.

Lyon vs Toulouse: Bet Tips:

  • Lyon to score 3+ goals at 2.00 (1/1)
  • Anytime goalscorer: Moussa Dembele (Lyon) at 1.62 (8/13)
