Conclusion & Betting analysis

Toulouse definitely look like the best team in the league right now but I’m not going to get involved in this match. Le Havre can be a difficult side to break down under experienced manager Paul Le Guen. He is no mug and will have a plan to deal with TFC, probably attempting to nullify them. I usually fancy Le Havre more away from home to be honest but this Stade Oceane does seem to regularly promote a low scoring type of match which probably suits HAC more. This is the first match that Toulouse will play without Ruben Gabrielsen, who was moved out of the club on loan. He has been a rock at the back for them and I do wonder if they might struggle as a result. Toulouse around the 2.40 mark to win feels about fair. I could see a low scoring draw here, 0-0 or 1-1. For those of you who do like to back unders then there could be some juice on the under 2.25 goal line, but I’m happy to leave this alone.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
