Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Strasbourg play host to Toulouse at their Stade de la Meinau in what is expected to be a close Ligue 1 encounter. Le Racing desperately needed a win against Lyon, and they managed to get one in style, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Strasbourg are eager to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at les Pitchouns. Keep in mind, though, that all Fila, Delaine, Kawashima, Dagba, and Kandil should miss out with injuries.
Toulouse, on the other hand, aim to build on the Coupe de France win over Ajaccio. Les Pitchouns were beaten by Strasbourg in three of their last four meetings at Stade de la Meinau, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. Brecht Dejaegere is sidelined through suspension, while fellow midfielder Denis Genreau has yet to overcome a muscle problem.
Highlighted Player (Adrien Thomasson):
A midfielder with a keen eye for a precise pass, Adrian Thomasson is a French international who plays for Ligue 1 side Strasbourg. Thomasson is a versatile asset who can be equally deployed in a number of different positions up front, including a holding position at the centre of the park.
He began his professional career at Evian in 2012 and spent three years with Les Roses before moving to Nantes in 2015. One league match shy from entering the 100-game club, Adrien Thomasson scored nine goals for the Canaries before joining Strasbourg in the summer of 2018.
As a player who likes to hold on to the ball and build play from behind, Thomasson boasts impressive passing ability. Albeit an attacking midfielder who can play on both wings and in advanced midfield position, this French footballer also makes quite a contribution in defense.
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.
