Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Lille on Matchday 14, Rennes will look to return to winning ways when they welcome Toulouse to their Roazhon Park on Saturday evening. Les Rouges et Noirs are eyeing their sixth home win of the process, but les Pitchouns should not be written off just yet. Birger Meling is banned for the match, while all Martin Terrier, Kamal-Deen Sulemana, Baptiste Santamaria, and Warmed Omari are out of contention with injuries.
Toulouse, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Lens and Monaco, but given their difficulties at the back, we do not believe that Philippe Montanier’s troops are capable of spoiling Rennes’ party at Roazhon Park. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Brittany. In their last meeting at the venue Rennes defeated Toulouse 3-2.

Flavien Tait impressed in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign and it has to be noted that he scored 4 goals in 34 appearances for Angers in the process. His main position is winger, but he is often used as an attacking midfielder. Flavien Tait’s preferred foot is right and he wears No. 20 jersey at Angers.
His contract with les Scoistes should expire on June 30, 2020. It has to be noted that his market value was €4.5 million on June 4, 2018.Flavien Tait has yet to make his France debut.
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.
