Toulouse vs Montpellier Free Betting Tips

It is going to be a tough task for Toulouse to defend against the second-best attack in Ligue 1 this season. Especially, in the last few seasons, Toulouse doesn't have much luck against the team from Montpellier.

Over 2.5 Goals

After PSG, Montpellier has the best attack in Ligue 1 scoring 19 goals in the process. That should reason enough for them to be placed a bit better than currently at the ninth spot. The reason for that lack of consistency in winning is their defense. As their attack goes for goals virtually every single game, their defense has allowed 15 goals, almost two per game. Montpellier is the record-holder for this season's highest win, scoring 7 unanswered goals against Brest. Montpellier has played over 2.5 goals in seven of their eight matches this season, while Toulouse did it five times.

Montpellier to Win

It is interesting to note that in h2h matches over the last five years, Montpellier won four times, while Toulouse got ahead on a couple of occasions. What is interesting is the fact that none of the games ended in a draw, which is curious to see as Montpellier is the only team this season that after eight Ligue 1 matches didn't play out a draw. Even though Montpellier hasn't been overly efficient away from home, their goal-scoring record suggests that Toulouse will have a hard time coping with the aggressive style of play from their visitors.

Managing expectations while moving upwards

Toulouse's main goal this season is to keep its status in the top division of French football. They spent accordingly to their means, and most money went to attacking players. However, those players like the most expensive signing Veljko Birmancevic didn't deliver just yet. Toulouse registered only one home win this season, in their last match against Reims, but will need to improve on their home form to continue managing their ambition to keep their Ligue 1 status.

Toulouse possible starting 11: Dupe, Desler, Rouault, Nicolaisen, Diarra, Sylla, Aboukhlal, Spierings, van den Boomen, Chaibi, Dallinga.

Montpellier keeps getting better offensive-wise, but they need to start winning games away from home which will be the key if they want to move forward, to come close to the league positions that will take them to European competition next season. Manager Olivier Dall'Oglio has some injury problems with his team, but so far this hasn't stopped him from selecting the right players to fill that void.

Montpellier possible starting 11: Omlin, Cozza, Esteve, Jullien, Tchato, Chotard, Ferri, Khazri, Savanier, Nordin, Wahi.

Team News:

Toulouse: Theocharis Tsingaras, Rafael Ratao, Rhys Healey are missing through injury.

Montpellier: Mamadou Sakho, Faitout Maouassa, Theo Sainte-Luce, and Dmitry Bertaud are on the sidelines through injury, while Khalil Fayad is suspended.
