Toulouse form and stats

Toulouse have played one away game so far, a loss. Last season their away games stats in the Ligue 2 were 0 victories, 4 draws and 11 defeats from 15 fixtures. Travelling has not been lucrative for the away team as they have returned home without a win in 24 away games in a row. Toulouse are desperate to end a 21-game winless run, as they haven't won a game since the Lille fixture.

Toulouse's last game was the home draw against Sochaux (0-0). A 3-5 defeat away at Grenoble Foot 38 before that.

Toulouse have the goal stats of 3-5 (for/against) from 1 business trip in the league at this early stage of the season.
