Europa League, group stage, Thursday, 09.11.2023

On Thursday evening, coach Jürgen Klopp’s men can reach the knockout phase of the Europa League.

To do so, however, they will need a win in the south of France when they face Le Téfécé. However, the first leg result should give them confidence.

My Toulouse Liverpool betting tip therefore doesn’t give the answers to whether the Reds will win, but how high.

After a 14-year absence, Les Violets returned to the European soccer stage. And they did so immediately after being promoted back to Ligue 1.

But you can tell that the 2023 Coupe de France winners have taken a legitimate but very short route to the Europa League.

They have just three wins in the domestic league after 14 matchdays (6U, 5N), while things are going a little better at European level.

The aim should be to reach the intermediate round – but given the fact that they were beaten 5-1 by the Reds two weeks ago, the goal difference is somewhat clouded

With that resounding victory, England have created an excellent basis for this matchday. After all, a win would see them progress to the next round.

That should come as no surprise given the individual class that the squad has to offer with players such as Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez and Virgil van Dijk.

Especially as the Reds have made it past the group stage in each of their last eight appearances in European competition

But don’t pop the corks on the Mersey too soon. After all, Liverpool have not won any of their last four away games against French teams and have only managed two draws.

The 1-1 draw at Luton Town in the Premier League at the weekend should also make you question whether the visitors are the clear favorites.

For the bookmakers at Bwin, it is not completely out of the question that the French side will pick up at least one point in the Toulouse Liverpool betting tip. The double chance odds are around 2.80.

However, the Reds seem to be taking the Europa League very seriously this season. There is no other explanation for their three clear victories.

Pressing remains a cornerstone of their game. No team stresses the opposition as much as Jürgen Klopp’s players. On average, 6.6 passes are made before a defensive action by LFC follows.

As a result, the offense quickly comes into its own. It is not without reason that the Tipwin bookies are predicting odds of around 1.40 in the Toulouse Liverpool betting tip if the visitors score at least twice

However, the French should not be underestimated under any circumstances. After all, they have won their last two home games in this competition.

In addition, goals have been scored by both sides in each of the Reds’ last nine away games. The odds for this scenario in the Toulouse Liverpool betting tip are correspondingly low

From the Téfécé’s point of view, however, it will be important to keep Ryan Gravenberch in check. The Dutchman has been one of the most important players for LFC in this competition so far.

He has scored in all three games (2 goals, 1 assist). Not since Steven Gerrard (2008) has a Liverpool player managed to score four times in a row at European level

It will be a tough task for the French side to beat the Reds or even get a point out of them. After all, they have lost each of their last three competitive matches.

Not everything is going according to plan for the visitors either, but their individual class should be too great for such a stumbling opponent.

My Toulouse Liverpool betting tip is therefore: Victory for LFC with handicap -1!
