Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport

Two sides who are enjoying their own respective Ligue 1 romps, Toulouse will welcome Lens to town for what could be a lively affair on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Toulouse might have been disappointed by their 2-1 loss against Lyon on April 14th, the Violets have certainly proven that was nothing more than a minor blip. Last seen over the weekend as they were crowned Coupe de France champions thanks to a 5-1 romp against Nantes, the mood in Philippe Montanier’s men should be at a red-hot high. Skyrocketing away from any potential relegation scrap and now with a top-half finish at the top of their agenda, Toulouse have now won four of their last five domestic appearances across all competitions. Booking their spot in the final of this year’s Coupe de France earlier in the month as they claimed a 2-1 victory away at Annecy, Les Violets have also gained a reputation for their lively outcomes. It should be noted, Montanier’s side have seen five of their previous six showdowns finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, making an immediate return to winning ways last week as they stormed their way to a thumping 3-0 win at home against Monaco, Lens have only continued to gain a string of plaudits from across France this season. Bouncing back from their 3-1 loss at the hands of PSG on April 15th, the one-time Lorient coach finds his high-flying squad cruising towards a famous Champions League ticket in 2023. Now winning five of their last six Ligue 1 appearances on either side of March’s international break, the midweek guests will be desperate to make another top-flight statement on Tuesday night. Claiming a 3-0 romp when they welcomed Toulouse to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis for their reverse Ligue 1 meeting on October 28th, neutrals could be treated to another enjoyable affair here. It should be noted, with Lens seeing nine of their previous 11 away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net, we are expecting a similar outcome.
