Toulouse can bounce back FOOTBALL.

Byline: Michael Cox

TOULOUSE v VALENCIENNES 6pm TOULOUSE should end their run of poor form and close the gap on the top two in Ligue 1 when they take on Valenciennes tonight, writes Michael Cox.

Sixth placed Toulouse, who are best priced 6-5 to take all three points, have seen their good early form slump of late, but they can put that behind them by inflicting a seventh away defeat of the season on Valenciennes - a win which could move Le Tefece into third.

The visitors, who are as big as 29-10 to win their first away game of the season, have picked up just two points on their travels this term.

They have scored just four in the process and are likely to struggle against a team who have kept four successive clean sheets on home soil.

A win for Alain Casanova's side would see Valenciennes looking nervously over their should as they are just a point from the relegation zone.

Toulouse picked up a good point against Lille last time out and will be hopeful of seeing off a side who have won just two of their last 32 away matches.

Toulouse's best price of 6-5 is not too bad, however the real value for this one lies the hosts leading at half-time and winning.

They were leading at halftime the last time they won and that looks worth backing at 11-4 against poor opposition.
