  • Competition: France - Ligue 1
  • Date: Friday, 3rd, May 2024
  • Kickoff: 18:00 UTC +1 / 19.00 CEST
  • Venue: Stade de Toulouse (Toulouse)

Seeking to maintain their slim European hopes, Toulouse will welcome their in-form counterparts Montpellier to the Stade de Toulouse on Friday evening for a Ligue 1 showdown.

Enduring an exceptionally tough start to their Ligue 1 campaign, where they languished in the relegation playoff spot exactly halfway through, Toulouse managed to rally at just the right moment to stave off any relegation fears. Le Tef have put together a five-game unbeaten streak in the top-flight after coming from behind last Sunday to earn a late 2-1 victory away at Lorient. A remarkable resurgence in form has helped Carles Martinez Novell's side close the gap to just six points behind RC Lens in the final European spot, but with three rounds to go, a top-six finish seems unlikely.

Conversely, Montpellier's Ligue 1 campaign hasn't differed much from the season of their Friday opponents. Indeed, the Herault-based club have flirted with the danger zone for a long time only to have their recent stunning upturn in form dispel any doubts about their survival. Michel Der Zakarian's men enter this match on the back of a five-game unbeaten run, with their latest fixture resulting in a 1-1 draw against relegation-facing Nantes. Starting matchday 32 with an eight-point cushion above the bottom three, La Paillade require just one more point from the final three rounds to seal their 15th straight season in the elite tier.

Toulouse vs Montpellier Betting Tips: BTTS

Both Toulouse and Montpellier are enjoying a late-season surge, with this pair, along with champions PSG, being the only ones in the French top-flight to hold an unblemished record from the past five rounds (W3, D2). As neither side wants to break their five-game unbeaten streak, sharing points in an enticing affair could be on the cards at Stade de Toulouse. Typically, whenever these rivals meet, entertainment is guaranteed, with each of their last 10 matchups seeing at least three goals, including their first clash of this term where Montpellier sunk Toulouse 3-0 at home. 

Le Tef have finely tuned their shooting boots of late, rattling the net at least twice in all but one of their last six Ligue 1 clashes. It's clear that Toulouse's defensive unit will be heavily tested, with Montpellier displaying outstanding proficiency in the last third, hitting the back of the net in 13 successive competitive fixtures, 10 of which ended in BTTS. As both teams aim to finish the season on a high note, coupled with their proficiency in scoring freely, an entertaining contest with goals at both ends is expected.

Toulouse team news

Talented defender Christian Mawissa Elebi is ruled out with an ankle injury, while Yann Gboho and Frank Magri are doubts after not being selected in last week's 2-1 comeback win over Lorient.

Apart from the aforementioned trio, Spanish tactician Carles Martinez Novell should be able to use all of his key players, while Ibrahim Cissoko is pushing for the starting XI after netting the winner off the bench last time out.

Montpellier team news

In contrast, Montpellier will make the trip to Toulouse without the services of defensive duo Theo Sainte-Luce and Falaye Sacko, along with midfielder Sacha Delaye, all absent due to injury setbacks.

The seasoned Tunisian striker Wahbi Khazri was not in contention last time out for unknown reasons, while Lucas Mincarelli and Arnaud Nordin saw red in stoppage time of the 1-1 draw against Nantes and will be suspended here.
