thumbnail Hello,

Alain Casanova's men have a miserable record away to Les Gones in recent seasons, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to come unstuck again when they visit on Thursday

Lyon will be hoping to bounce back from Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain when they welcome Toulouse to the Stade Gerland on Thursday.

Remi Garde’s men had gone five matches unbeaten prior to that trip to the capital and are 5/6 (1.83) favourites with Paddy Power to return to winning ways this evening.

In contrast, Le TFC ended a run of four Ligue 1 games without a win by thrashing Sochaux 5-1 at the weekend and are available at 7/2 (4.50) to come out on top here.

The hosts have drawn four of their last six league games on home turf, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them coming away with a single point yet again tonight.

This pair have been two of the most inconsistent teams in the French league so far this season, with each having won five, drawn four and lost six of their 15 fixtures.

While this form may not have come as too much of a surprise to Alain Casanova’s perennial mid-table side, the home fans have come to expect better in recent years and will be desperate to see their side climb up the league with a win.

Undefeated in nine games in all competitions in their own back yard and with three wins from their last four, Les Gones should be in luck when they take on a visiting side with five defeats and just two wins on their travels in Ligue 1 this season, particularly with senior striker Bafetimbi Gomis set to return from injury.

What’s more, Toulouse have come away empty handed on each of their last six visits to the Stade Gerland, conceding 16 goals and scoring just six in the process, so those 5/6 (1.83) odds look very tempting on the hosts recording a morale-boosting win this evening.
