Ligue 1: Lyon vs Toulouse

Lyon vs Toulouse Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second match of Round 11 in the French Ligue 1, Lyon host Toulouse.

Lyon didn’t make the good start of the season and after 10 rounds they are standing at the 6th position with 10 points less than leader PSG. Title is too far for home side, but their main goal is to finish the season at the top 3 teams and play in the Champions League next season. Even in CL they don’t play good. After three matches they have only one point and it’s questionable are they have strengths to reach one of the first two position. Three days ago they lost in St Petersburg against Zenit 3-1, so are they ready for this game after defeat and long trip. Anyway, they have to start collecting points in order to save this season and make something positive. In the last 5 matches in all competitions Lyon have managed to win only one game. Lacazette, the last season top scorer, scored only two goals this season and it seems that he out of his form.

Toulouse started this season very poor. They are standing one position above the relegation zone and they desperately need points. Visitors have managed to win only once on 10 matches this season in Ligue 1 and they have to start playing better in order to avoid relegation. Their attack is very solid, but they have many problems in defence. Toulouse have the worst defence in Ligue 1. They will be fully motivated to make some positive result against out-of-form Lyon.

Lyon vs Toulouse injuries and suspensions

Home team will be without Bisevac (5/0 d), Kalulu (4/1 d), Kone (0/0 d), Grenier (0/0 d), G. Fofana (0/0 m) and their top scorer Fekir (4/4 m). On the other side, visitors miss their first goalkeeper Goicoechea (8/0 gk), Ninkov (3/0 d), Aguilar (0/0 m) and Roman (0/0 m).

Lyon vs Toulouse possible lineups

Lyon: Lopes; Jallet, Yanga-Mbiwa, Umtiti, Rafael; Ferri, Gonalons, Tolisso; Valbuena; Lacazette, Beauvue.
Toulouse: Ahamada; Tisserand, Kana-Biyik, Yago, Moubandje; Akpro, Didot, Doumbia; Trejo, Braithwaite, Yedder.

Lyon vs Toulouse Prediction

Home team is a favorite to take three points in this game, but their recent performance is not at the high level. Visitors need points and I believe that they can do something in this game, at least to score one goal, especially if you keep in mind that they have some problems in defence and miss their top scorer. Both teams to score looks like a good betting option.
