Montpellier vs Toulouse
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mosson (Montpellier)
Montpellier will be looking for all three points when they take on Toulouse on Sunday afternoon at home.
Montpellier are down in 8th place after winning just 1 game from their past four and they have slipped 5 points behind a possible European spot. Their latest game ended in a 1-0 defeat against a direct rival in Nice and that was their 8th defeat of the season. At home they have lost just 3 games all season which is good but the clubs main problem is the amount of games they keep drawing, so far 40% of their home games alone have ended this way.
Toulouse are in 14th on 35 points and are 11 points from the bottom three and very safe. To their credit they keep putting in displays, we say this because Toulouse can’t change much of their season, and it is virtually over for them, but they got a nice win against Nantes last weekend.
Toulouse have struggled away from home though and have not won on the road since January. Overall the club have lost almost 50% of their games away from home.
Montpellier vs Toulouse: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse game Montpellier strolled to a 3-0 win.

Montpellier vs Toulouse: Prediction
This could be Montpellier’s last roll of the dice to challenge for a European place and they are playing a team who they historically beat. Their biggest enemy could be themselves and the amount of draws they have chalked back. At the same time it’s difficult to think that Toulouse will get anything from this game and we will back the away win. We will also back Gaetan Laborde to get on the score sheet, the player has been pretty solid this season for the club.
