Confidence runs high for both Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Toulouse. The squads clinched victories in their previous matches, which resulted to their rise in the Ligue 1 table.

PSG currently trails Marseille by 3 points, whilst Toulouse has finally penetrated the top-flight league’s top 10. The upcoming match is important as it will determine the direction that these clubs will pursue.

 

The contenders

Toulouse

Toulouse made an impression when they visited Rennes. The former squashed the host in their own territory and scored 3 massive goals. One of the shots even came from Fallou Diagne’s own goal.

 

Once again, Wissam Ben Yedder featured for the club as he netted the club’s 3rd goal.

 

Paris Saint Germain

Despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence, PSG was able to secure a much needed win against the newly-promoted Caen. The said victory signaled a positive mood within the Parisian’s camp since the club has been criticized for its over reliance to Ibrahimovic.

 

However, Laurent Blanc’s lads prove their detractors wrong as Lucas Moura and Marquinhos took care of the club’s scoring responsibilities.

 

Possible head turners

Sports betting pundits will have to watch out for  Moura and Marquinhos. The tandem could feature again in their match against Toulouse. However, one should not forget that Edinson Cavani will always pose a great threat to PSG ‘s determined and aggressive opponents.

 

Prediction

Toulouse 1-3 Paris Saint Germain
