Match Date: 13 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stade Auguste-Delaune

 

The online betting favorite, Reims had to endure a humiliating loss into the hands of a newly-promoted squad and an inevitable drop in the Ligue 1 table. Reims currently sits at the 19th spot of the top-flight league and desperately trying to recover from 3 consecutive losses.

 

Meanwhile, Toulouse is in a slightly better position than Reims. Although it seems to be trapped in a win-loss cycle, the club remains safe since every win that it collects generate 3 crucial points.

 

The contenders

Reims

It is still a surprise that Reims succumbed to Lens in a humiliating manner. The former was thrashed by 4 massive goals and lost the opportunity to snatch 3 points. But despite the said defeat, the only consolation that it has was that they were able to respond 2 goals and avoided a clean sheet.

 

Toulouse

Toulouse was fortunate enough to pull off a late goal against the struggling Evian Thonon Gaillard. The shot came on the 78th, thanks to Adrien Regattin, who salvaged the squad from a possible scoreless stalemate.

 

Possible head turners

Reims will have to deal with Steeve Yago to ensure their winning possibility. The defender was spectacular during the match against Evian and will most likely step up for Toulouse.

 

Prediction

It does not take a genius to see that Toulouse is the evident online betting favorite of the match. The club is valued to win at 2.50 in 12BET.
