Toulouse vs PSG
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 31st March 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse)
Toulouse will welcome the champions to their stadium for Sunday night’s game.
Before the break Toulouse have been in decent form with one loss from their last four matches but their results as ever this season have been dogged by too many draws. Their matches have ended 11 times in draws which is over 40% of their games finishing in this result. And of course their last match ended in a draw, 1-1 against Nice. Toulouse look safe with 32 points and should be able to pick up just enough points to finish in the lower half of the table.
The last time PSG dropped points was their defeat against Lyon at the beginning of February and the club come into this match winning 5 games in a row. With 10 games left to play (9 for their rivals) they are 20 points clear and they could well have the league wrapped up by mid April.
PSG have won 10 of their 13 away matches including winning their last 3 in a row with their last away match ending in a 4-0 destruction of Dijon. They are scoring on average 2.5 goals a game away from home.
Toulouse vs PSG: Head to Head
The last two meetings home and away have ended in victories for PSG but only by 1-0 scorelines.
Since 2009 Toulouse have only beaten PSG once which happened in 2016.
PSG have not got a big score over Toulose away from home since 2014 when they won 4-2.
Toulouse vs PSG: Prediction
Let’s make no mistake, PSG are by far the superior side out of the clubs. But they have really struggled over the last few years to get signifcant wins over Toulouse at this stadium.
There isn’t any good value in backing PSG to win and whilst we think they will get a win we have to question their motivation given that the league will be theirs.
Instead then we will back Toulouse on the handicap to get victory. Toulouse’s players will be up for this game and will want to put in a good display against PSG in front of their home fans.
