Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Montpellier play host to Toulouse at their Stade de la Mosson on Matchday 30. La Paillade have been in a fine form of late, with the team winning three of their last four league matches, and it is no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. Kiki Kouyate suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Marseille, with Mamadou Sakho likely to step up, while all Dimitry Bertaud, Beni Makouana, Maxime Esteve, Faitout Moauassa, and Theo Sainte-Luce remain in the recovery room.
Les Pitchouns, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 3-1 loss to Brest. Since Toulouse suffered three defeats in the previous four away games, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. To make things even worse for the away team, defender Anthony Rouault is banned for the clash.
Highlighted Player (Téji Savanier):
Born in Montpellier on December 22, 1991, Teji Savanier is a French footballer who plays for Nimes in the Ligue 1 as a midfielder. Savanier began his senior career at Arles-Avignon and it has to be noted that he played for the club from 2011 to 2015.
Ahead of the start of the 2015/2016 Ligue 2 campaign, Teji Savanier joined Nimes and he has been playing for the club ever since. The 171-cm tall midfielder has established himself as a first-team regular at Nimes and he successfully plays for the club in the French top flight. Savanier’s main position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Despite producing fine performances for Nimes in all competitions, Teji Savanier has yet to receive a call-up for the French national football team. His contract with Nimes should expire on June 27, 2018.
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.
