Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Toulouse will look to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Reims when they take on Clermont on Matchday 26. Les Pitchouns have been struggling to find their best form of late, and, no doubt, they face a difficult task in Sunday’s clash. Since Toulouse struggle at the back, we do not believe that home win should be considered. Ratao suffered an injury in the last league match, with Chaibi likely to step up, whereas there are no other selection worries in the home team.
Clermont, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their dreadful winless run. Since the visitors will go for a victory as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Mateusz Wieteska is banned for the match, while all Maximiliano Caufriez, Alidu Seidu, and Johan Gastien are out of contention with injuries.
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.
