28/06 Daily Predictions French Top 14 Toulouse vs Bordeaux

Toulouse vs Bordeaux

Toulouse clash with Bordeaux at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille for the right to be crowned Top 14 winners. The defending champions beat their old nemesis La Rochelle in the semi- final 39-23 with the scoreline not a true reflection of the match. Their opponents has two players sent off which helped them to victory. Bordeaux on the other hand had to fight all the way for their 22-20 victory over Stade Francais. The Parisians scored a try in the last minute of the game and had a conversion to send the match into extra time but fortunately the flyhalf kicked the ball against the post.

TIP: Toulouse will be looking to complete the double after having won their sixth European title earlier in the season when they beat Leinster. Bordeaux will be weary of the threat the Toulouse pack hold but the main danger will come from Anton Dupont. The code-switching maestro is undoubtedly the best player on the planet and if Bordeaux are to cause an upset, they will need to find a way to keep the number nine quiet. The bookies have Toulouse as favorites and I am also backing them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Tictacbets 1.25, Wanejo 1.25 and Bettabets 1.25

HEAD-TO-HEAD STATS

  • Bordeaux won the last match between the sides 31-28.

Latest results for both teams

Toulouse beat La Rochelle 39-23 in their last match while Bordeaux beat Stade Francais 22-20 in their last match.

PREDICTION

Both teams are blessed with incredible backline players with Toulouse boasting the likes of Blair Kinghorn and Matthis Lebel while Bordeaux have two of the most dangerous wings in Damian Penaud and Louis Bielle-Biarrey. There are plenty of mouthwatering contests within the game but the battle between the all-international halfbacks will decide the match. Bordeaux relies heavily on the magic of Matthieu Jalibert who can change the match within seconds with his outrageous kicks or running game. The Toulouse pack holds the key as they have the power advantage over the opposition but they will need to be disciplined or Jalibert will punish them. I am predicting a Toulouse win by 6 points.
