We present to your attention the League Cup meeting between Toulouse and Bordeaux in the frames of 1/8 final of the French League Cup. The forthcoming meeting is waited by the guests and the hosts of the public stadium in Toulouse in absolutely different tournament status at their national championship. We will remind you that according to the results of 16 last rounds Les Pitchouns are now at the relegation zone while the guests of the forthcoming match are taking the middle position at the tournament bracket.
Toulouse (the head coach Pascal Duprat)
Last season the final aim of Les Pitchouns was the berth into the Europa League and now Toulouse is solving absolutely different tasks. After 4 defeats in 5 last rounds to Nantes (1:2), Dijon (1:3), Nice (1:2) and Lille Olympique (0:1) the team of Pascal Duprat has definitely fallen to the relegation zone and now together with Metz and Angers are situated at the very bottom of the tournament bracket. It is obvious that in this case for underdog the League Cup goes into the background
Bordeaux (the head coach Jocelyn Gourvennec)
This team is also experiencing some kind of a slump. Bordeaux has managed to earn only 4 points in 5 last matches of the French season: against Saint-Étienne (3:0), Marseille (1:1). The team of Jocelyn Gourvennec experienced new defeats in matches against Caen (0:1), Dijon (2:3), Strasbourg (0:3). But thanks to accumulated earlier fund of earned points Bordeaux is taking now the 12th line.
The main task of Toulouse is now to improve considerably its tournament position at the national championship. That is why, as we have already noted, the current championship of the Cup League has appeared to the hosts of the forthcoming meeting to be minor and absolutely unnecessary for participation.
But Bordeaux, having now quite balanced squad is able to fight for this national trophy.
Toulouse – 2.75, draw – 3.00, Bordeaux – 2.40;
