Bitesize Prediction: Toulouse vs Rennes – 12/02/23

Competition: Ligue 1

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on their Ligue 1 flurry this weekend, Toulouse will welcome Rennes to the Stadium de Toulouse on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, making an immediate return to winning ways earlier in the week, Toulouse are in the midst of what has become a stellar run of form. Eventually breezing their way to a 3-1 romp at home against Reims earlier in the week, Philippe Montanier’s men have impressed many across France since returning from the World Cup break. In fact, despite slumping to a close-fought 2-1 loss away at defending champions PSG on February 4th, that is the only defeat that Toulouse have suffered from their nine domestic contests since opening 2023. Skyrocketing their way up the Ligue 1 table and now sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half, Montanier’s side should find the mood in their camp at a real high. With their extended flurry highlighted by a 4-1 victory against Troyes last month, Les Violets could be smelling the chance to lay down another marker here.

As for the visitors, while Rennes might have opened February with a routine 3-0 romp at home against Strasbourg, Bruno Genesio’s men are enduring a worrying rut. Making an immediate return to losing ways last weekend as they were hit with a 3-1 drumming at home against Lille, the Reds have now lost three of their last four domestic showdowns. Showing a host of defensive issues and mustering just a pair of clean sheets since the end of October, Les Rennais also face an uphill struggle in their bid to punch a Champions League ticket. Slipping their way down the Ligue 1 table, the former Lyon boss will have a headache over his side’s glaring problems on the road. Last seen on their travels getting hit with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Lorient, Rennes have recorded just a single victory outside of Brittany since October 23rd.

Bet: Both teams to score at Toulouse vs Rennes 8/11 for Sunday’s Ligue 1 matchup @ 888sport
