Toulouse host Liverpool at the Stadium de Toulouse this Thursday in matchday four of the Europa League. Liverpool have complete control of the group whereas Toulouse are looking for a win to rival Union Saint-Gilloise for qualification to the knock-outs.
Toulouse currently sit third in Group E after three games. The French side have one win, one draw and one loss, leaving them on four points, equal with Union but below them by virtue of goal difference.
In their last five games in all competitions, Toulouse have two draws and three losses. Frank Magri opened the scoring for Toulouse in the first half and despite holding on for the rest of normal time, Martin Satrino scored in the 92nd minute to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Brest. Toulouse then grabbed another 1 - 1 draw, this time against Reims. Amir Richardson opened the scoring for Reims but just three minutes later Thijs Dallinga equalised for Toulouse.
In the Europa League, Toulouse suffered a 5 - 1 loss to Liverpool. Dallinga managed to get on the scoresheet for Toulouse early on, but the French side couldn’t manage more than three shots on target. Another loss came Toulouse’s way in Ligue 1 against Montpelier. A brace from Akor Adams and a goal from Khalil Fayad gave Montpelier the 3 - 0 win.
The last time out for Toulouse was against Le Havre. Dallinga was on the scoresheet yet again for Toulouse but a late brace from Mohamed Bayo gave Le Havre the 2 - 1 win.
Liverpool, on the other hand, sit top of Group E. In three games, The Reds have three wins which leaves them on nine points, five points above the next closest team and in complete control of the group.
In their last five games in all competitions, Liverpool have four wins and one loss. In the Merseyside Derby, Liverpool grabbed an important win. After Ashley Young was sent off in the 37th minute, Mohamed Salah converted a penalty for his first goal and then grabbed his second goal in the 97th minute to give Liverpool the 2 - 0 win. In the Europa League, Liverpool thrashed Toulouse 5 - 1. Diogo Jota, Wataru Endo, Darwin Nunez, Ryan Gravenberch and Salah all scored in the 5 - 1 win.
Back in the Premier League, Liverpool faced Nottingham Forest. Jota, Nunez and Salah were all on the scoresheet again for Liverpool in the 3 - 0 win for The Reds. In the Round of 16 of the League Cup, Liverpool travelled to Bournemouth. Cody Gakpo opened the scoring for Liverpool but Justin Kluivert equalised for Bournemouth. However, just six minutes later Nunez scored for Liverpool to grab the 2 - 1 win.
The most recent outing for Liverpool was against Luton Town. Tahith Chong opened the scoring in the 80th minute for Luton but a 95th minute goal from Luis Diaz grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Liverpool.
Toulouse and Liverpool have met three times in their histories, with the first meeting coming in 2007. Liverpool have won all three meetings, with Toulouse having only scored once against Liverpool in comparison to Liverpool’s ten goals.
