Important information about Toulouse vs Monaco
Monaco needs to find a defensive balance
Toulouse has seen a steady rise this season holding onto the middle of the rankings. They haven't always gotten things right, but they are doing what they have to keep their Ligue 1 status. They lost only once in their last six matches, and that was last week against the excellent Lens team that is second in the rankings. Toulouse is especially confident when playing at home, they lost only once, and are undefeated in their last four matches with three wins coming their way. It's interesting to notice that Toulouse is one of the sides in Ligue 1 who have the most foreign players in their squad, the number is 21. Moroccan Zakaria Aboukhlal, Belgian Brecht Dejaegere, and the Brazilian Rafael Ratao are their best scorers with three goals each.
Toulouse possible lineup: Dupe, Desler, Rouault, Diarra, Sylla, Dejaegere, Spierings, van den Boomen, Chaibi, Dallinga, Aboukhlal.
Monaco's defense has given a headache to their coach Philippe Clement. The Monte Carlo outfit allowed 18 goals this term which most likely cost them some wins. It seems that Clement has trouble with his squad, maintaining the right balance, especially as the team has endured a tough period of three months with plenty of European action while trying to break through the ranks in France. They are in the seventh position in the rankings, and that is simply not good enough for the ambitious owners of the club. Monaco management didn't do many things right this season, but one thing they haven't missed was bringing in center-forward Breel Embolo who is the club's top scorer with six goals.
Monaco's possible lineup: Nubel, Sarr, Maripan, Disasi, Jakobs, Matazo, Fofana, Akliouche, Minamino, Ben Yedder, Embolo.
Toulouse: Rafael Ratao is missing with flu-like symptoms.
Monaco: Benoit Badiashile is suspended.
