Toulouse’s officials try to make the most of the mathematical chances to survive in Ligue1, so they appointed a new coach, Pascal Dupraz.
Unfortunately mister Dupraz suffered a heart attack and is recovering in hospital at the moment. Although he can’t be physically present at the training sessions, Dupraz surely already transmitted his ideas and Toulouse will have a new approach from now on.
Dupraz is a former forward and the focus will undoubtedly be on the offensive phase, just like it happened at his former club. Especially on home ground (5 games remaining) Toulouse will be very pushy and aggressive in the attempt to save the season.
At the moment there are no reports of new injuries for Toulouse.
Disappointing result for Bordeaux last week against Gazelec Ajaccio (finished 1-1). Bordeaux got equalized in the late in the game, after abandoning fight way before the final whistle.
Central defender Pablo returned after a long injury and it was a miracle he didn’t receive a red card. It was very clear he is out of form, got an early yellow card, and the referee closed his eyes at the next fouls.
Bordeaux are usually very offensive minded, and if defensive players are out of form they risk conceding from all positions, like it happened two rounds ago against Reims (lost 4-1).
There are no new injuries, so guests can use the same lineup as last week.
This could be a very entertaining encounter, with Toulouse rushing upfront from the beginning and Bordeaux playing along, as they are perfectly suited for an open game. OVER 2.5 goals at 2.13
UPDATE: Toulouse welcome back defender Kana-Biyik after injury
