Sunday at Stadium de Toulouse, as Tolouse host Monaco in the Ligue 1.

This clash sees eleventh placed Tolouse, welcome sixth placed Monaco to Stadium de Toulouse.

Tolouse FC arrive at this match, having secured 16 points so far this season

Tolouse will take a huge positive from their recent 3-0 win against RC Lens at Stade Bollaert-Delelis.

Also, Tolouse need to get out of the losing habit, with five recorded in the last 10 matches. With 16 points, they currently sit eleventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 4 wins, 5 losses and 4 draws having won four matches, drawn four meetings, and lost five matches.

Tolouse have won three matches, drawn three fixtures, and lost one game of their seven League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see Tolouse FC on 19 points.

It is likely that two key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Philippe Montanier and his Tolouse team.

AS Mónaco’s Ligue 1 season, has so far seen them gain 24 points, going into this game

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Philippe Clement will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Angers SCO 2-0 and Lille 4-3

Also, Monaco keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last eight games is astonishing this season. Now they have 7 matches won, 3 games lost and 3 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in sixth place, with a total of 24 points having won seven meetings, drawn three games, and lost three fixtures.

Monaco will travel to Tolouse with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with four victories, one dart, and one losse.

A win in this fixture, would take AS Mónaco’s points from 24 to 27, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Monaco, in terms of goals scored (25). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Breel Embolo (6), Wissam Ben Yedder (5), and Guillermo Maripan (2). Monaco have conceded 18 goals.

Monaco’s squad will likely be depleted of one of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.
