Toulouse v Lille: Preview

Lille coach Rudi Garcia is predicting this season's battle for European places in Ligue 1 will go right down to the wire.

Just three points separate third-placed Lyon and Nice in sixth, who are level on points with Lille with four games remaining, as the pressure starts to build at the top of the table.

But Lille have every reason to feel confident going into tomorrow's match against Toulouse with just one defeat in their last 12 games, although Garcia is expecting an almighty battle to get into the top four.

``It is never easy to play in Toulouse,'' he said.

``We go there with the desire to win. I hope we will have the ability to do so.

``We do not have easy games between now and the end of the season, but it will be the same for our competitors.

``The final sprint has started to try to get the European places.

``To do that that, you have to win, starting with Saturday.''

Ryan Mendes and Franck Beria are set to feature for Lille after recovering from injury but Djibril Sidibe is a doubt and Florent Balmont is suspended.

There is less pressure on Toulouse boss Alain Casanova whose side sit comfortably in mid-table, although they are without a win in four.

Victory on Saturday would mathematically secure their safety but Casanova is expecting a tough test.

``Since January, Lille are the best team with Saint Etienne and Paris Saint Germain,'' he said.

``They are very dangerous at home and away and play very attacking football.

``They have high-level individuals who can make the difference at any time such as Dimitri Payet, Salomon Kalou, Ronny Rodelin and Marvin Martin.''

Toulouse will be without Jonathan Zebina and Pavle Ninkov who both have thigh injuries while Cheikh M'Bengue is not yet ready to return.
