Lyon vs Toulouse
France – League Cup
Date: Wednesday 18th December 2019
Kick off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Olympique Lyonnais.
Lyon will be favourites to win this all Ligue 1 clash for a place in the quarter finals of the League Cup.
The home side are in cagey form having lost 2 of their last three matches, with their last game ending in a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Rennes. Lyon are in 8th place and are 5 points from a top 4 position.
Lyon reached this stage of the cup after receiving a bye and they will try their best to win this and win some silverware which hasn’t been forthcoming in the last few seasons.
Toulouse have their own problems and one has to question how important this game is given that they are bottom of the league. They have 12 points and are 5 points from safety and their form is poor having lost 5 games in a row. Their last match ended in defeat against Reims.
Toulouse beat Niort to get to this round of 16, and their away form overall is poor with no wins this season in the league.
Lyon vs Toulouse: Head to Head
The last time the two teams met here Lyon won 5-1.

Toulouse have no wins at this stadium in 15 years.
Lyon vs Toulouse: Prediction
We think Toulouse have too many problems and really do not need this match. They will want to fight off relegation and making it further in this competition doesn’t make great sense.
This doesn’t mean that they will roll over but Lyon should have too much quality for them. Also Toulouse have a poor record against them here.
Lyon have been bumpy at home losing almost 50% of their games, but let’s not worry too much about that. A win here could really give the team confidence to be better in the league and that is what we are going for here.
