Both teams are almost complete for this match. PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti will most probably have Ezequiel Lavezzi back from two-match suspension (red card against Ajaccio), although the LFP’s Disciplinary Committee will make the final decision today (Thursday). Mohamed Sissoko and Thiago Silva are doubtful and probably Ancelotti will not risk with them as PSG have the Champions League opener against Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday. Toulouse coach Alain Casanova also have a near-full squad to pick from.
I decide to take Over 2.5 goals here. PSG didn’t start the season as the fans were expecting. They have three draws and only one victory after the first four rounds. The players and the coach Ancelotti are under small pressure and they have to give the maximum on this match. I expect an offensive approach from the Italian coach since the first minutes. On other side Toulouse is excellent team. The players are full of confidence after the good start. Toulouse is unbeaten so far and have two victories and two draws. However, something else is important for my pick – Toulouse have scored on every match they played so far. I believe they are able to score at Parc des Princes too.
At the end I will mention that the last three mutual games between two teams have finished with Over 2.5 goals all. I think the tradition will continie.
