Toulouse vs Lille
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 21st April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse)
Toulouse’s last game ended in a 2-1 defeat against Montpellier and even though the club are in 15th they are 8 points clear of the relegation zone and have a game in hand over Dijon who are currently in 18th.
Formwise Toulouse have won just 1 game in their past four but at home their recent record is much better with just 1 loss in their past five matches and their last match here ended in a win over Nantes.
Lille will be the favourites to win this game as they have had a superb season so far and look to try and secure 2nd place. The club are 5 points clear of Lyon but could restore that to 8 points with a win here.
Lille’s last game will be remembered for some time with the club as they thrashed PSG 5-1 and they have gone their last 3 games without defeat. If they were to draw or lose in this game then PSG would be champions once again of France even before they kick a ball which is taking place on Sunday evening.
Lille have won 9 of their away games so far this season and are unbeaten in their last five trips. They have the 2nd best away record in the league.

Toulouse vs Lille: Prediction
This is a tough game for Lille to win but because it would delay PSG once again in winning the league they will be motivated. However they are obliged to focus and put in a performance as Lyon played on Friday and won and have put pressure on them to do well. We are backing not only the away win but also let’s follow the brilliant striker for Lille, Nicolas Pepe who has found his scoring boots once again.
