Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Toulouse will be aiming to build on a splendid 5-0 win over Auxerre when they take on Brest in the Ligue 1 round 19. Les Pitchouns are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. With no fresh injury worries to report, head coach Philippe Montanier is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed Auxerre in midweek. Both Denis Genreau and Mikkel Desler are out of contention with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to escape the relegation zone, but seeing that they collected only one point in total from the last three league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. Forwards Karamoko Dembele and Romain Del Castillo should be the only absentees in the away team. In their last meeting in the Ligue 1 Brest outclassed Toulouse 5-2, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Steve Mounié):
Steve Mounie is a Beninese footballer who plays for Huddersfield Town as a striker. Mounie is a product of Montpellier youth academy and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the blue and orange shirt in Ligue 1 at senior level.
After scoring 14 goals in 37 appearances for la Paillade in the French elite division, the 190-cm-tall attacker moved to Huddersfield Town in 2017, but it has to be noted that he spent the 2015/2016 season at Nimes as a loan player. Steve Mounie signed a four-year deal with the Terriers and he made his competitive debut for the club on August 12, 2017, scoring a brace in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The attacker who was born in Parakou (Benin) on September 29, 1994 will represent the Benin national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of nations. Mounie scored his first ever goal for the national team in a 2-1 win over South Sudan in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
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.
