Our football match prediction:
Strasbourg are flying high ahead of the visit of Toulouse. Following a historical win over star-studded Paris Saint-Germain, le Racing did well to crush Bordeaux on the road (3-0) in their last league fixture, but they do now want to stop now. The newcomers aim to climb to the top half of the Ligue 1 standings and we predict they will go all guns blazing at Toulouse when the two teams face each other at Stade de la Meinau. Les Pitchouns put an end to their six-game winless run at the weekend, with the team beating Caen in front of home fans, but seeing that their away record in the 2017/2018 season is anything but good, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the in-form hosts. Strasbourg are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Saturday evening.

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.
