Toulouse is not making a very positive season and continues its fight to get out of the division descent zone. In the last 10 games for the championship suffered 7 defeats, so you need to improve this performance to have chances of getting maintenance, especially in games as a visitor, as only won a victory in that condition. To make things even more difficult, in this game he faces one of the best teams in this league, so the support of his fans will be essential to avoid defeat. The local team coach should maintain the 4-4-2, with Tolvonen and Gradel in the most advanced positions.

For the championship, Nantes won 14 points out of 30 possible points, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in the last 10 home matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half-time was the 0-0 (5 out of 10 matches).

In 20 matches in this tournament, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only won 1 result.
The Nantes is making an interesting championship, but despite the fifth position it occupies is far from the places of access to European competitions, it is 8 points from the 4th classified. Despite the 4 wins in 10 away games, the Nantes attack is not very productive in this condition, since it has an average of less than one goal scored per game. Thus, it will have in this day the opportunity to improve these numbers, because it faces one of the weakest teams of the first French league. The coach should maintain the usual 4-4-2, with Sala and Rongler on the attack front.
