Toulouse will be wanting a better result here following the 5-3 Ligue 2 loss in their previous game against Grenoble.
For Toulouse, goals were scored by Vakoun Issouf Bayo (30', 45') and Janis Antiste (80'). Loïc Nestor (12'), Achille Anani (16'), Jessy Bénet (32'), Willy Semedo (42') and Moussa Djitté (69') scored for Grenoble.
Toulouse have been quite ineffective in attack in more recent games. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 against opponents over the course of their last six outings. In those meetings, Toulouse have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 15.
Coming into this clash, Toulouse have not won at home in their last 9 league games. No joy for the home fans.
Sochaux come into this match following on from a 2-1 Ligue 2 win to defeat ESTAC in their last fixture.
For Sochaux, goals were scored by Joseph Lopy (28') and Gaëtan Weissbeck (84'). Pape Meïssa Ba (90') scored for ESTAC.
The numbers tell their own story, and Sochaux have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 8 goals overall. Defensively, Les Lionceaux could really do with shoring things up. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will be continued on here.
Coming into this meeting, Sochaux have left without a victory over Toulouse FC when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Toulouse
Wesley Saïd (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Kelvin Amian (Foot Injury) are unavailable for Toulouse manager Patrice Garande.
Team News: Sochaux
Sochaux manager Omar Daf has to choose a team with limited availability. Younès Kaabouni (Ruptured knee ligament) and Yann Kitala (Tibia Fracture) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that in this game, Sochaux will likely create enough chances to find the back of the net against this Toulouse lineup, although it probably won’t quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re going for a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for Toulouse at full-time. Looking forward to this.
