Reason For Lyon vs Toulouse Predictions

  • Lyon have been scoring for fun recently with 23 goals scored in their last seven matches.
  • Les Gones have also won six of their last nine home games but need to be wary of their rather paper-thin defence which has kept just two clean sheets in their last 14 matches at the Groupama?
  • Toulouse have conceded 30 goals in their last eleven games, all of which they’ve lost. However, les Violets have scored in their last four clashes with Lyon, including the teams’ last meeting in mid-December.

Toulouse hoping for new manager boost

Toulouse have been one of Ligue 1’s laughing stocks this season with an absolutely awful five months so far resulting in fourteen losses, two sackings and just twelve points. Former Toulouse reserve team manager Denis Zanko has been handed the reigns until the end of the season but he has quite the job on his hand to say the least.

He took charge of his first match two weeks ago at home to 15th placed Brest, an extremely winnable match that would have been a great confidence boost for the squad and that’s exactly what it looked like as they led 2-1 going into the 72nd minute. Toulouse ended up losing 5-2. 

This calamity has been indicative of their season as a whole with them now on a run of eleven straight defeats. They’ve conceded a whopping 30 goals in this time with just nine scored in reply. Unsurprisingly Toulouse have conceded the most goals in Ligue 1 this season and have the worst away record in the league with just three of a possible thirty being picked up. 

Lyon scoring for fun

Lyon should be looking to deal with this match in the most professional way possible given Toulouse’s awful record recently. Les Gones have been in fine form but will need to concentrate and not allow complacency to seep into their performance. 

Lyon have won six and drawn one of their last seven matches with goals coming extremely easy to Rudi Garcia’s men with 23 being scored in this period. They have conceded nine in this time so have to work on the defensive side of the game but generally their fantastic front line has been winning the points in recent weeks. 

Lyon have a solid record at home with six wins in their last nine matches at the Groupama. They have continued their goalscoring prowess in front of their own fans although it should be noted that they’ve kept just two clean sheets in their last 14 home matches.

Goals aplenty in this one?

Lyon’s attack is fantastic and with Toulouse hopeless at the back we’re expecting them to get a few goals. The hosts have scored over 2.5 goals in five of their last ten matches and with Toulouse conceding more than 2.5 in six of their last eleven, we’re backing the hosts to net at least three times here. However, as a result of les Gones’ rather disappointing defence, and given the fact that both teams have scored in the last four clashes between these sides, we’re expecting this one to finish 3-1. Zanko’s first match in charge did see les Violets create their third most chances in a league game since October so we’re expecting the away team to get on the scoresheet here but doubt they’ll get anything substantial from the match.
