Toulouse will be aiming to stay in the top half of the table and keep up slight hope of entering the top eight before the World Cup when they meet with Strasbourg on home soil as the away side come into this one in the relegation zone.
Compared to last season where Strasbourg were campaigning for a spot in the Champions League for much of the season, the club are now coming into this game in 17th and staring into the face of a long and tiresome relegation fight. This comes as a result of just one victory all season long for the club, which is the fewest amount in Ligue 1 alongside bottom-placed Brest. Worse yet for Strasbourg, they have let in 17 goals so far already from 11 games.
The only aspect keeping them from dropping deeper into the bottom four is the fact they have managed to get five points from five draws. This still means they have lost five games too, however, although their win over Angers came just two weeks ago as Kevin Gameiro and Habib Diallo were the difference once again for Strasbourg.
As for Toulouse, they are in solid form this yet and sit inside the top half right now in ninth. They’ve secured four wins so far, but with 17 goals scored and 18 let in while also losing four times, their inconsistencies is clear for everyone to see.
