After suffering a 2-1 loss to Monaco, Toulouse is looking for a chance to bounce back to winning when they host Reims at Stadium de Toulouse. The match is scheduled to start at 14.0GMT on Sunday 10 February 2019. Despite their ups and downs, the Les Pitchouns’ presence in the Ligue 1 is still intact. With 8 points above the relegation zone, a win for Toulouse will bring them closer to the middle of Ligue 1 table standings. However, their opponent seems to be well equipped for victory.
Toulouse has never won any of their home games since back-to-back wins against Bordeaux and Nimes at the start of the season. They are thus expecting to make this their first home win after running such a long drought of home wins. Their last week’s Ligue 1, 1-2 loss to Monaco and Coupe de France’s 0-2 loss to Nantes show their shaky and unreliable form this season. A win would be very important for them come Sunday.
At number 8, in Ligue 1 table standings, Stade de Reims seems to be doing well. Their back-to-back wins against Marseille and Guingamp show what kind of team will face Toulouse. The Les Pitchouns will be no match for the in-form Reims come the Sunday fixture.
With 6 unbeaten matches in all competitions, the travellers are confident of taking three points. Reims occupy position 8 with 34 points just as number 7th placed Marseille who are ahead of them on goal difference. A chance for them in the top four is possible owing to the fact that they are just 3 points apart from the 4th placed team though they have played one match more. Therefore a win for them is more valuable as is for Toulouse. Reims’ good performance this season will entertain their fans to a win over Toulouse this weekend.
