Reason For Lyon vs Toulouse Betting Tips

  • Toulouse have lost each of their last seven matches. Their last win came in this competition.
  • Lyon won this competition in 2001 and have since been in the final on three occasions (2007, 2012 and 2014).
  • Toulouse haven’t beaten Lyon since 2014. They’ve since lost nine out of ten renewals of this fixture.

Hosts must bounce back

Lyon remain one of the big boys in France, but they haven’t always performed like it this term. In fact, it’s been a very up and down, stop, start campaign for Wednesday’s hosts, who find themselves sat in an unflattering 8th position.

Consistency have been a huge problem for Lyon. For example, after being defeated at home by Lille, they bounced back nicely to thrash Nimes. Such a win should’ve acted a springboard for further success, but Rudi Garcia’s men have since gone in the wrong direction They clung on for a draw away against Leipzig in the Champions League and were beaten at home by Rennes in the league on Sunday.

Fortunately for the hosts, Wednesday’s opponents have been in shocking form of late. Lyon have lost each of their last two at home, but they’ve faced good sides, that are far superior to Toulouse, while they were unbeaten in three, two of which they won, prior to those defeats.

Visitors on downward spiral

Lyon aren’t having a great campaign, there’s no denying that, but they’re nowhere near as poor as Toulouse, who’re struggling big time.

Wednesday’s visitors find themselves sat bottom of the pile, five points from safety, while they come into this fixture having lost each of their last seven matches. During that time, they’ve scored six and have conceded a rather chunky 17. Therein lies the problem.

Frankly, Toulouse are too weak at the back. Even if they improved offensively, they’d still be struggling. Until they tighten up defensively, they’ve got little hope of improving their situation.

Opportunity for Lyon

‘Lyon Win to Nil’ makes plenty of appeal ahead of this fixture. Toulouse lack the defensive strength to win this match, but it’s also easy to feel that Lyon can keep them quiet at the other end too. The hosts haven’t conceded more than once at home in Ligue 1 this season, which is impressive since they’ve faced some decent sides such as PSG, Rennes and Lille. They’ve also kept three clean sheets against better teams than Toulouse, so this must be viewed as opportunity not only for Lyon to win but to keep a clean sheet too.
