Team News: SM Caen
SM Caen boss Pascal Dupraz will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match with a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: Toulouse
Thanks to a largely available group, there’s just a single fitness problem for the Toulouse boss Patrice Garande to be concerned about. Wesley Saïd (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
In our view, SM Caen could well find it tough to register a score against this Toulouse outfit who we think might manage to score & go ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 0-1 victory for Toulouse at the end of the 90 minutes.
Little in this one.
