Toulouse vs Lille – Betting Analysis
Toulouse and Lille have each won two of their most recent head-to-head matches going back to May 6, 2018, with one match ending in a draw.
Over the span of those games, the two clubs scored a total of 17 goals, with Toulouse scoring 7, and LOSC scoring 10. That equals 2.83 goals per game on average.
The two teams’ most recent league encounter took place on Ligue 1 Match Day 8 on September 17, 2022, with Lille defeating Toulouse 2-1.
At that point, Lille had 45% of the ball and made 10 shot efforts, four of which were successful. Jonathan David (5′) and Adam Ounas (53′) scored the goals.
Five of Toulouse’s 14 shot efforts found the back of the net. (48′) Farès Chabi struck. Pierre Gaillouste served as the umpire for the game.
Out of a nearly full-strength collection of players, Toulouse manager Philippe Montanier only has one fitness issue to deal with. Rhys Healey (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) has been eliminated from the race.
The players Maxime Dupe, Mikkel Desler, Anthony Rouault, Rasmus Nicolaisen, Gabriel Suazo, Stijn Spierings, Brecht Dejaegere, B. van den, Zakaria Aboukhlal, Thijs Dallinga, and Rafael Rato are likely to play in a 4-3-3 formation for Toulouse in this match.
Paulo Fonseca, the manager of Lille, must select a squad with limited options. Ismaily (Dead Leg) and Tiago Djaló (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be participating in this contest.
It’s our belief that LOSC might elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, beginning the game with Lucas Chevalier, Gabriel Gudmundsson, Leny Yoro, Alexsandro Ribeiro, Timothy Weah, Jonas Martin, Andre Gomes, Remy Cabella, Angel Gomes, Jonathan Bamba and Jonathan David.
Toulouse will need to put on a strong performance throughout the game to score goals against this Lille squad, who should have the upper hand, in our opinion.
