Toulouse vs Montpellier Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Toulouse welcome Montpellier at the Stadium Municipal on Saturday evening, with the hosts looking to add their first points to their tally in the new Ligue 1 season. Toulouse were unlucky to lose on the road at Monaco last weekend as they had the lead twice following goals from Zinedine Machach and Andy Delort. On the other hand, Montpellier won 1-0 at home over Caen thanks to a second-half goal from Souleymane Camara. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

The previous three games between these two sides have been low-scoring affairs and give the fact that both have struggled to find the back of the net in pre-season, I’m expecting another tight game. However, Toulouse should feel confident ahead of this clash as they have only lost once in their last ten home games across all competitions.

Toulouse to win at 5/4

Under 2.5 goals at 4/6

Toulouse saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Toulouse Preview

Toulouse’s form in pre-season has been poor as they have only won once in five friendlies. They looked solid against Monaco in the opening round as they had the lead twice, but unfortunately, a defensive mistake led to the Monegasque’s third goal, and Toulouse were unable to come back into the game. Toulouse’s form over the past four months has seen them win just once in their last 13 games across all competitions. At home, Toulouse are winless in their last six league fixtures, although they have only lost once in this term. The good news is that Toulouse are unbeaten in their last seven home meetings with Marseille across all competitions, winning four and drawing twice in this term. The most worrying fact is that Toulouse have failed to score in four of their last seven home games across all competitions. Toulouse sold last season’s top scorer Martin Braithwaite to Middlesbrough this summer, but they brought in Corentin Jean from Monaco and Yaya Sanogo from Arsenal as replacements. Zinedine Machach has also returned from his loan spell at Marseille and the 21-year-old striker managed to score the opener against Monaco last weekend.

Toulouse Team News

Issa Diop and Steven Fortes are both doubts ahead of this clash.

Montpellier Preview

Montpellier, on the other hand, needed almost an hour to score the winner against Caen last time out, but the important thing is that they kicked off the new campaign in a positive manner. It was expected that Montpellier will struggle to find the back of the net this season, after selling their last season’s top scorer Steve Mounie to Huddersfield Town for €13 million. Ryad Boudebouz has also played a vital role in Montpellier’s performance last season with eleven goals and nine assists under his belt, but Montpellier can’t count on him at the moment as the 27-year-old midfielder is still missing through injury. In terms of arrivals, Montpellier brought in Giovanni Sio as a replacement for Mounie, and the 28-year-old striker could prove to be a good addition as he managed to score nine goals for Rennes last season. Montpellier did well to win last weekend, but it remains to be seen if they can follow that with another victory as their away form over the past eight months has been terrible. In addition, Montpellier have failed to score in seven of their last 15 away games across all competitions. Furthermore, Montpellier are winless in their last seven visits to the Stadium Municipal since a 0-1 victory back in 2012.

Montpellier Team News

Pierrick Fito, Jonathan Ligali and Morgan Poaty are all doubts, but Ryad Boudebouz is still out through injury.
