Team News: Toulouse
Toulouse manager Patrice Garande will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match thanks to a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: SM Caen
Out of a mainly healthy group, there is just the sole fitness problem for the SM Caen manager Fabrice Vandeputte to contend with. Hugo Vandermersch (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
Our feeling is that Toulouse will probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
In contrast, SM Caen could well struggle to get shooting opportunities but do we see them hitting back at some stage here, too.
We’re tipping a comfortable 3-1 win for Toulouse after 90 minutes.
