Our football match prediction:
Toulouse will be aiming to recover from a heavy 6-2 loss to Paris Saint-Germain when they welcome Rennes at their Stadium Municipal on Saturday evening. Les Pitchouns have already suffered two defeats in the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign, but it has to be noted that they faced title holders Monaco on the road on the opening day of the season. Toulouse recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Montpellier in their first home game of the season and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s football match. Les Rouges et Blancs are eyeing their first win of the season as they were more than unfortunate not to beat Dijon in front of home fans at the weekend. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, but seeing that les Pitchouns experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 6-2 loss to PSG, we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in the Stadium Municipal clash.
