Our prediction for this Coupe de France match:
A place in the Coupe de France semis will be at stake when lower-league side GFA74take on Toulouse at Stade des Grangettes on Tuesday evening. The hosts set up a meeting with les Pitchouns by beating Annecy and Le Puy, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry this time out. Anyhow, we are positive that the underdogs will adopt a defence-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash.
Toulouse, on the other hand, did well to beat Chateauroux 1-0 in their last league match, with the team moving one step closer to securing automatic promotion. Since les Pitchouns are fully focused on the French second tier, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match. Toulouse booked their place in the French Cup quarter-finals by beating Saumur Olympique on the road.
Highlighted Player (Firmin Mubele):
Firmin Ndombe Mubele is a DR Congo international, who plays for Toulouse in Ligue 1. The 178-cm tall winger was born in Kinshasa (Zaire) on April 17, 1994, starting his senior career at his hometown club Vita Club. Mubele scored 17 goals for Vita Club in the league before joining Al Ahli in 2015 and in 2017 he moved to France, signing a contract with Rennes.
After spending only one season at Roazhon Park, the Congolese footballer joined Toulouse on loan. Mubele eventually signed a permanent deal with les Pitchouns, who secured the Ligue 1 survival thanks to a win over Ajaccio in the play-off. Firmin Mubele scored his first goal for Toulouse on March 11, 2018 in a 2-1 loss to Olympique Marseille. Speaking of his international career, the Toulouse attacker has established himself as one of best DR Congo footballers.
Mubele scored four goals in eight appearances for DR Congo in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, but that did not help his national team book their place at the showpiece tournament in Russia.
Highlighted Team (Toulouse):
Toulouse are a professional football club that compete in Ligue 1. Les Pitchouns are well known for their purple jerseys with white stripes and it has to be noted that they used to wear red and yellow jerseys in the past. Toulouse welcome their opponents at Stadium Municipal and the capacity of the team’s home ground is 33.150. Stadium Municipal was used as a venue for the 1998 FIFA World Cup.
In 1982 the club secured promotion to the Ligue 1 for the first time ever and you should bear in mind that the likes of Jacques Santini and Daniel Jeandupeux were part of the team. A win over Napoli in the round 1 of the 1986/1987 UEFA Cup is considered one of the club’s biggest success as football legend Diego Maradona played for the Italian team back then, attacker Daniel Jeandupeux scored the winner for Toulouse in the penalty shoot-out. Bordeaux are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in Derby de la Garonne.
