Toulouse vs. Lille – Prediction (19.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Toulouse are unbeaten in their last two games against Lille in Ligue 1 (W1 D1), but have failed to make it three in a row against the Dogues since December 2008-August 2009 (3). Toulouse have won two of their last 16 games in Ligue 1 (D6 L8) – it was in August 2019 against Dijon (1-0) and in August 2019 against Amiens (2-0). Lille are winless in their last eight away games in Ligue 1 (D5 L3), their worst run away from home in the top-flight since August-November 2015.

Toulouse have endured their worst nine-game start to a league season since 2015/16 (W2, D3, L4) and they are hoping to prevent a five-game winless streak (D2, L3) from extending. A clean sheet will be key to their success, as seven of their previous nine league victories have been accompanied by one, with the last four being recorded at home. Toulouse have lost only two of their last nine home games against Lille in Ligue 1 (W2 D5), losing in April 2014 (1-2) and in May 2008 (2-3). Whilst both of Toulouse’s league wins have come at home, ‘Le Téfécé’ have actually scored more goals away from home so far. Significantly, three of Toulouse’s four home league matches to date have produced under total 2.5 goals.

Lille are on a five-match unbeaten run in the league (W2, D3) but they’ve haven’t drawn three league clashes in succession since January 2017. They remain one of seven Ligue 1 (L1) clubs yet to win an away game this season, and stand as the joint-second lowest scorers on their travels in the French top-flight. Lille are unbeaten in their last five Ligue 1 games (W2 D3), the longest current run in the top-flight. On a more positive note, only Nantes and PSG have scored the first goal more often than Lille this season, and they are unbeaten on all six occasions (W4, D2). Going into this round of games, Lille also boast the joint-strongest first-half record in the division (W4, D5, L0) but all four of their away games yielded a level half-time score.
