Lyon vs Toulouse – Betting Analysis
For Lyon boss Peter Bosz, Castello Lukeba (muscle injury), Romain Faivre (dead leg), and Julian Pollersbeck (knee surgery) won’t be able to play.
There is only one fitness concern for Toulouse manager Philippe Montanier in a team that is otherwise fully healthy. This game won’t include Rhys Healey (Cruciate Ligament Rupture).
We believe Lyon can and should be able to generate a respectable number of opportunities and shots on goal. Toulouse may struggle to score, but we do expect them to do so at least once in this situation. Therefore, by the time the referee blows the final whistle, we anticipate Lyon to have won 3-1.
