Toulouse vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse are having a normal season where they are too far from the relegation zone, they are a good 8 points clear but are too far from challenging for a European spot as they are over 10 points behind. So, you wonder where the motivation can come from?
They have just 1 win in their past four games and became the first team to lose at Monaco this season when they went down 2-1 last weekend. Their last home match ended in a dire 0-0 result against Angers.
Toulouse have not won a game at home for almost 4 months and they have drawn 3 of their last four games. It is fair to say they come into this game low on confidence.
The same can’t be said for Reims who moved up to 8th place as they beat Marseille 2-1 at home last weekend. The club have won back to back games and are undefeated in their last 5 matches but like Toulouse they tend to draw too many games.
Toulouse vs Reims: Head to Head
The teams last met here in January in the French Cup where Toulouse won on penalties after the game had finished 3-3.
Reims have no wins at Toulouse in the last decade.
Reims have only beaten Toulouse once in the last 10 games which happened in 2014.
Toulouse vs Reims: Prediction
Reims are the type of team that find a bit of form then can’t keep it and this could be a tricky away match they have on their hands-on Sunday. Both teams are specialists in draws, so we will take the away side to win on the double chance.
Even though they have a poor record over Toulouse in previous years these matches end up mostly being draws. As the game goes on, we expect to see more gaps and we will opt to see more goals in the 2nd half of play.
This won’t be as exciting as the French Cup game and most of the play will be about a battle in midfield.
Toulouse vs Reims: Bet Tips
Double Chance: Reims or draw at 1.50 (1/2)
