This Sunday sees Tolouse go head to head with RCSA at Stadium de Toulouse – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.

This clash sees seventeenth play ninth, as struggling RCSA visit Stadium de Toulouse to face Tolouse.

It’s 15 points so far for Tolouse FC this season, going into this match

Tolouse will be buoyant, following a 3-2 home win against Angers SCO in their last fixture.

Also, Tolouse keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last five fixtures is astonishing this season. Now they have 4 matches won, 4 games lost and 3 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in ninth place, with a total of 15 points having won four games, drawn three meetings, and lost four matches.

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

A win in this fixture would take Tolouse FC’s points to 18 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring rate of 17 goals (16 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Zakaria Aboukhlal (3), Rafael Ratao (3), and Brecht Dejaegere (2). Tolouse have shown a poor defensive display so far, having conceded 18 goals in their previous games.

Tolouse’s squad has depth, but even so, Philippe Montanier is likely to be missing one of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.

This season’s Ligue 1 campaign, has so far seen RC Strasburg achieve eight points

Julien Stephan will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Angers SCO and then Lille, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so three losses in four fixtures would not make this a successful season for RCSA. With a seventeenth position in the league and 1 wins, 5 losses and 5 draws, they currently have eight points in the League having won one game, drawn five meetings, and lost five games.

RCSA have won one game, drawn two matches, and lost two fixtures of their five League matches on the road this season.

Winning this fixture will see RC Strasburg on 11 points.

RCSA’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Julien Stephan, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
