Ligue 1 action on Sunday as Tolouse and Reims meet at Stadium de Toulouse – 3:00pm GMT.

Reims will travel to Tolouse, as fourteenth plays fifteenth in the table.

Tolouse FC’s campaign so far has seen them accrue five points this season

Tolouse will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Clermont Foot 2-0 in their last fixture.

Also, with an unfortunate Tolouse that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Philippe Montanier’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With five points, they currently sit fifteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 1 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws having won one game, drawn two games, and lost three meetings.

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

Victory for Tolouse FC would take their points tally to 8 so far this season.

Tolouse may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Reims have six points to their name, going into this tie

Reims’s pride is now at stake, as they will not wish for another successive poor result. They recently drew 1-1 away to RC Lens, which followed the loss to Angers SCO. They will be eager to improve in this next fixture.

Also, with three draws in four fixtures, Manager Oscar Garcia has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With a fourteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 2 losses and 3 draws, they currently have six points in the League having won one game, drawn three meetings, and lost two meetings.

Reims will travel to Tolouse with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory, one draw, and one defeat.

A win in this fixture, would take Reims’s points from 6 to 9, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Reims, in terms of goals scored (10). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Folarin Balogun (5), Junya Ito (2), and Kamory Doumbia (1). Reims’s defensive record in the Ligue 1 has so far been very weak, with 13 goals conceded in their last games. This is an issue that Oscar Garcia urgently needs to address within the dressing room.

Injury and illness have depleted Oscar Garcia’s Reims and they will likely be missing four key personnel for Sunday’s match.
