Ligue 1: Toulouse should stay in Ligue 1, according to Opta

TFC, who are having great difficulties in Ligue 1, can count on Data to relieve them. In fact, this Friday, LFP shared Opta’s latest predictions, which paint a positive scenario for the Violets in terms of the club’s continuity in Ligue 1.

Tef, currently in 16th place, appear to benefit from a 73% probability of staying, thus reducing the chances of finding themselves among the bottom three teams to just 27%.
