Toulouse vs. Metz
Toulouse, eager to break free from a disappointing six-game winless streak, will welcome newly-promoted Metz for a Sunday Ligue 1 clash at Stadium Municipal.
Carles Martinez’s team couldn’t maintain a one-goal lead and suffered a 2-1 defeat against Lens in their previous outing, while Les Grenats also faced a setback with a 1-0 loss to Strasbourg in the Derby de l’Est.
After inflicting further heartache on Coupe de France final opponents Nantes with a 2-1 victory on the opening day of the season, Toulouse’s performance has been inconsistent and underwhelming. Last weekend, Martinez’s team became Lens’ first victims of the season.
Cesar Gelabert’s well-placed finish in the 33rd minute gave Les Violets the lead, but Wesley Said, a former player of Toulouse, equalized for Lens just before halftime. Substitute Morgan Guilavogui completed Lens’ comeback in the dying moments of the match.
