Our prediction for this Coupe de la Ligue match:
Niort play host to Toulouse at their Stade Rene Gaillard in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Wednesday’s program in the Coupe de la Ligue. Les chamois set up a meeting with the Ligue 1 side by beating Chateauroux and Grenoble and they are now on a quest to claim a major scalp in the French League Cup. Niort, though, have been struggling in the Ligue 2 in the 2019/2020 season and we do not believe that they are capable of beating les Pitchouns.
Toulouse, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Rennes in the national championship. Les Pitchouns are eager to go all the way in the Coupe de la Ligue and we are positive that they are going to prove their worth on the field in the Stade Rene Gaillard clash.
Highlighted Player (Ibrahim Sangaré):
Ibrahim Sangare is an Ivorian professional football player who plays for Toulouse in the first tier of French Football. Standing at 1.91m, the defensive midfielder is known for his "big presence" and " tackling."Sangare started his youth career with Ivorian clubs Tout Koumassi and AS Duenguele and spent a cumulative of five years with the clubs.
In 2016, he left Ivory Coast to join the French club Toulouse FC on an initial one year contract, which later extended to five years. After spending his first few months in the reserve team, Sangare broke into the first team set up as the season progressed. He made his professional debut on the 22nd of October, 2016, in Toulouse's 0-0 league draw with SCO Angers.
As of today, Sangare made 66 appearances for the club in all competitions. Born on the 2nd of December 1997, the 21-year-old has represented Ivory Coast at the under-23 level and the senior level, debuting for both in the year 2015.
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.
