Toulouse vs Brest
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th January 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadium de Toulouse.
Toulouse are bottom of the league and have lost 9 games from their past 10. That meant the inevitable and coach Antoine Kombouare was sacked a few days ago. Stepping into the role as caretaker manager is Denis Zanko who was coaching the B side.
With 39 goals shipped Toulouse have conceded the most goals in the league and they are now 5 points from safety. Most of their points have come at home, 75% and home form is still poor as they have lost 6 from 9 games, they are yet to draw here. The club have lost their last 4 games in a row at home and haven’t won here since beating Lille back in mid- October.
Brest are in 15th place and after a bright start to the season they are starting to find it very hard as games come thick and fast. They have 22 points but are only five from the bottom three now and they might start to struggle.
Brest come into this game with just 1 win from their past five encounters. Their last game ended in a 4-0 defeat by Montpelier away from home. Their overall away record is poor with just 1 win this season and they are conceding 2 goals per game.
Toulouse vs Brest: Head to Head
- The teams have not played here since 2012 when Toulouse won 3-1.
- Brest have not beaten Toulouse since 2010 going back 8 games.
- There is a 90% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Toulouse vs Brest: Prediction
Two poor sides in poor form meeting each other either means the odd goal could decide the match or we are in for a dour game and a 0-0 result.
Toulouse have done decent against Brest though when they have played. Even earlier this season the teams drew 1-1 at Brest.
We are going to go for the home win based on the fact that the manager has been sacked and perhaps the players may respond in a positive fashion to that.
Brest at this time don’t seem like they have much to offer, also we don’t expect there to be many goals here. Both teams could be very cautious.
Toulouse vs Brest: Bet Tips
