Defeated in their last ten matches and in the flashlight of the French Championship, Toulouse have Brest on their way this Saturday, January 11.
The match is part of the twentieth round of the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 season, the first in the second round and after the tournament’s recess.
The meeting will be held at the Toulouse Municipal Stadium from 4 pm (Brasília time).
France’s elite division has 20 teams. The season has 38 rounds and at the end of the race leads the top three finishers to Champions League, with the first two securing a place in the group stage and the third having to play in the qualifiers to get there. Who gets the fourth place goes to Europa League.
The drawdown zone is reserved for the worst three, but there is also a difference in quality between the positions.
The last two go straight to Ligue 2, while the second-to-last still have a chance to escape the fall by playing a second division club.
Toulouse started 2020 just as it finished 2019. Losing. On Saturday, January 4, away home, they beat Saint-Pryve 1-0 in their debut match – and in this case farewell – of the French Cup.
It was the tenth consecutive defeat. The last time the team did not leave the field was defeat on October 30 when they scored 2-1 away from home in Niort, in a match for the French League Cup, which was also eliminated a little later.
Thus, the French Championship is what is left for the club, whose mission is to escape from relegation.
With 12 points (three wins, three draws and 13 losses), he is in the 20th – last – position in the standings.
The difference for Metz, seventeenth placed and first outside the sticking region is five points.
As principal, he won nine (three wins and six losses) out of the 27 points he played.
Brest also had their French Cup campaign ended early. On Sunday, January 5, he fell in front of Lorient from the Second Division.
They drew 1-1 at regular time and were beaten in extra time by 1-0.
On Wednesday, January 8, suffered a new elimination. This time in the quarterfinals of the French League Cup.
Acting out of his domain again, he beat Lyon 3-1. Like Toulouse, it was given the unique and exclusive mission of battling against relegation in the Ligue 1 final stretch.
It is, however, better off. With 22 points (five wins, seven draws and seven losses), he occupies the fifteenth position in the standings.
There are five more than Amiens, seventeenth placed and first team in the region of sticking.
As a visitor, it is the third worst of the tournament. Of the 27 points he played, he won five (one win, two draws and six losses), scoring six goals and conceding triple.
Football Prediction of the Day Toulouse vs Brest
Despite Toulouse’s disastrous sequence, Brest’s poor performance as a visitor makes room for the homeowners’ success as a guess for Saturday’s matchday 20 match of the 2019/2020 French Championship.
