Toulouse vs. Lyon – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 02.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Toulouse have won just 20% of their Ligue 1 games against Lyon (10/50), their lowest win percentage against an opponent they have faced at least three times in the top-flight (level with Montpellier, 8/40).

Despite a valiant display that saw Toulouse launch a comeback after conceding two goals within the opening ten minutes, an injury-time strike saw them fall to a 3-2 defeat at Rennes in their last Ligue 1 (L1) game. Whilst a disappointing scoreline, that result made it four consecutive league fixtures where both teams scored. All four of Efthymios Koulouris’ (TOU) league goals this term were netted after half-time. At home, Toulouse remain one of just two teams without a draw this league campaign (W3, L2), with all three of their home victories seeing the hosts draw at half-time. In fact Toulouse are yet to score a first-half goal at home, with four of their six L1 strikes here being netted in the 15 minutes immediately following half-time.

Three of Toulouse’s last four L1 games saw the opener netted by the tenth minute. The last five H2Hs held here involved both teams scoring and no more than one goal separating the teams. Lyon have scored five of their seven L1 away goals before half-time.

They may struggle to keep that trend going against a Lyon side that are yet to score or concede within that same time period on their league travels, albeit the visitors travel here winless in their last four top-flight road trips (D2, L2). All four of Moussa Dembélé’s (LYO) away league goals this season were scored before half-time – two before the tenth minute. Their two away losses this season came via a 1-0 scoreline, and four of their last five L1 away defeats have now arrived by a one-goal margin. However with a win-rate of just 45.45% as an away favourite in L1 games since the beginning of last season (W10, D6, L6), and just 25% since the beginning of this season (W1, D1, L2), there’s no guarantee Lyon’s winless away run will finish here.
