Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back draws with likes of Monaco and Amiens, Montpellier will be aiming to return to winning ways in Ligue 1 when they welcome Toulouse at their Stade de la Mosson. La Paillade aim to retain their spot in top ten, whilst les Pitchouns are desperate to escape the relegation zone. Toulouse are not enjoying a season to remember and they are on a four-game winless run in the national championship ahead of the trip to Montpellier. The visitors want this win more than the hosts, but given their poor form, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Pascal Dupraz’s men. Montpellier are eyeing a place in European competitions and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. Les Pitchouns defeated la Paillade in the first half of the season and, no doubt, the hosts are hungry for revenge.

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. Om 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. Aforementioned 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.
