Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stadium Municipal will host Sunday’s football game between Toulouse and Lens, the two teams with entirely different ambitions for the season finale. Toulouse’s main goal is to secure yet another Ligue 1 survival, while Lens are eyeing a spot in European competitions. As Les Pitchouns experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Coupe de France loss to Rouen, we are not tempted to put our money on the home side. All Logan Costa, Moussa Diarra, and Frank Magri are on international duty, while the likes of Denis Genreau, Mikkel Desler, and Zakaria Aboukhlal miss out with injuries.
Les Sang et Or, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to PSG in the Ligue 1 derby, but it has to be noted that they fought well with ten men on the field. Jonathan Gradit is banned for Sunday’s match following his sending-off against les Parisiens, while the likes of Samed, Mendy, Khusanov, Cortes, and Gilavogui are on international duty. Given the number of absentees in the away team, there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Angelo Fulgini):
Angelo Fulgini is a French footballer who plays for Angers in Ligue as a midfielder. Fulgini played for the likes of AS de Saint-Paul-en-Foret, FC Vidauban, SC Douai and Valenciennes during his youth career and he continued playing for the Athenians at senior level.
After scoring eight goals in 80 appearances for Valenciennes from 2015 to 2017, he moved to Angers before the start of the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Stade Raymond-Kopa. Angelo Fulgini scored his first ever goal for les Scoistes on August 6, 2017 in a 2-2 draw with Bordeaux. Despite being born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on August 20, 1996, the Angers midfielder represents France on the international stage.
Angelo Fulgini has 3 caps for the France U21 team, while making 15 appearances for the U19 team. His main position is central midfield, but he is uses as both right-back and right midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
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.
