Toulouse vs Lyon
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 2nd November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse are in 17th place and even though they have played some good football this season they have a big lack of consistency about their game. Last weekend they lost to Rennes 3-2 and yet the weekend before beat a better team in Lille and this sums up the teams season so far.
Even though they are one place from the relegation zone a win at the weekend could see the club move up 4 places and they would go past their visitors Lyon so there is a lot to play for in this match. At home they have won 3 games and lost 2 with no draws as yet.
For Lyon the moment is about stabilising after new coach Rudi Garcia has arrived and the club won their first game since August last weekend with a routine 2-0 win at home over Metz. It was a major boost for the club who will want to continue that it what could be a tricky game at the weekend.
Away from home Lyon have been poor with just one win all season and 5 points gained from a possible 15. Their last away game ended in defeat to Saint Etienne and they haven’t won on the road for 2 months.
Toulouse vs Lyon: Head to Head
- Last season this match finished 2-2.
- Toulouse have not beaten Lyon when at home for 4 games going back to 2014.
- Lyon have scored 9 goals against Toulouse in the last 3 meetings.
Toulouse vs Lyon: Prediction
Lyon are in 13th place with 13 points but are only 6 points behind 2nd placed Nantes so they have the time and quality in their team to bounce back here. We think they have gained a lot of confidence in the last few weeks since Garcia’s arrival and we will be backing them to win this game.
Moussa Dembele loves playing against Toulouse and has scored 3 goals against them in the last 2 games and so we will also be backing the Lyon player to score anytime. Lyon’s objective now is to get into the top 4 as quick as possible and forget about the beginning of the season.
Toulouse vs Lyon: Bet Tips:
Lyon to beat Toulouse at 1.80 (4/5)
Anytime goalscorer: Moussa Dembele (Lyon) at 2.10 (11/10).
