Very tough Group, especially the trip to the Nou Camp..

Good luck
Nice win in the season opener bud even though you lead 3-0 and a tough Champions League group so maybe some Europa on the way.

Toulouse have had a poor start to the season, claiming only one victory in four matches. Their first match of the season saw Toulouse take on Montpellier HSC where fans of Le TFC were heartbroken when Borja Mayoral scored in injury time to earn Montpellier HSC a draw.

The next two fixtures resulted in consecutive defeats to Stade Rennais FC and En Avant de Guingamp. Kelechi Iheanacho struggled up front as Toulouse clearly struggled without star striker Wissam Ben Yedder.

In the final match of the month, Toulouse defeated FC Metz 4-1 at Stadium Municipal with strong performances put forward from Dimitri Foulquier, William Matheus and M’Baye Niang.

After performing inconsistently last season, Cristian Pavon has got off to a positive start to the season by winning the Player Of The Month award for August. Pavon has managed to provide Toulouse with two goals and two assists during the first four matches of the season.

Throughout the off-season, Pavon was linked to a move to Bayern Munich with manager Pep Guardiola said to be interested in the player. Despite the interest, reports suggest that Bayern Munich and Toulouse were unable to reach an agreement on a transfer fee.

Getting off to a poor start this season, Toulouse find themselves in 13th heading into September. Olympique Lyonnais have been incredibly impressive, winning all five of their games to start the season.

Recently promoted, Dijon FCO have been the surprise packets early on as they find themselves with eight points from five fixtures. At the other end of the table, there are still five teams who are yet to win a game.


Injury Report

Wissam Ben Yedder

Suffering shin splints before the first game of the Ligue 1 season, Wissam Ben Yedder has missed the last month through injury. He is expected to return for the match against Angers SCO on the 8th of September.

Loic Bessile

Still recovering from knee tendonitis, Loic Bessile is expected to have to wait four to six more weeks before he is able to return. His absence leaves William Matheus as the only fit left back in the squad.

A tough run lies ahead of Toulouse in September, starting off with a relatively easy fixture against Angers SCO, Toulouse then face Bayern Levekusen in the UEFA Champions League before playing first placed Olympique Lyonnais, the always dangerous Paris Saint-Germain and second placed Girodins de Bordeuax.

It doesn’t get any easier for Toulouse as next up they face Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League before ending the month with an away fixture against third placed AS Monaco.
Ouch rough start
Tough start and is likely to only get harder with the CL games but you are the champions, you'll bounce back!
A very poor start which is a surprise but I'd expect you to turn it around.
A difficult start but the victory over Metz shows that form is temporary, while class is permanent.
Rough start to the new season mate, what's your fixture list looking like have you got some easy beats ahead?
A tough start but hopefully you can turn it around
