Toulouse vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 24th November 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
The Ligue 1 weekend will come to a close when Toulouse take on Marseille late on Sunday night.
The home side are in 19th place and will be the clear underdogs to win here. It doesn’t make matters any better that they have lost their last 3 games in a row coming into this one. Last time out they were beaten by Montpellier 3-0. At home they have won 3 games but have still lost 3 of their matches from the last 4, and so it is fair to say that Toulouse are in a poor period of their season.
Marseille seem to have sprung into life at the very right moment and in the absence of Lyon’s presence they have taken that place. Talking of Lyon, Marseille beat them 2-1 before the international break and there is a good confidence about the side. They have won 3 from their last 4 games including winning their last two in a row.
Away from home they have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 2, so all equal there but what is not great is that they have lost their last 2 away games in a row. And Marseille have not won away since the middle of September.
Toulouse vs Marseille: Head to Head
- Marseille will want a repeat of last season’s fixture here when they won the match 5-2.
- We have to go back 5 games and to 2016 for the last time Toulouse beat Marseille when at home.
- The last 3 meetings have seen Marseille score 11 goals.
Toulouse vs Marseille: Prediction
If Marseille want to play Champions League football next season, then they need to be winning these types of away games and although their form on the road isn’t great they have good confidence coming into this game and we think they will win it.
They have scorers in all positions and should be far superior to Toulouse who remain a team who could be heavily involved in a relegation dog fight.
We will back the away team to win this game and they should be able to score a few goals too.
