Toulouse vs Bordeaux Predictions


Toulouse are heavy favourites to end Bordeaux’s fairytale run in the Champions Cup this weekend. The quality Toulouse posses should be comfortably too much for the Begles. My best bet is for Toulouse to cover the -13 handicap on home soil.

  • Toulouse have won 11 of their last 12 matches (Champions Cup).
  • Toulouse have won 15 of their last 18 matches (all competitions).
  • Toulouse have covered the -13 handicap in 7 of their last 9 home matches (all competitions).
  • Bordeaux lost 45-23 in their last match against Toulouse (Top 14).

Head to Head


Toulouse lead Bordeaux 13-5 in their 19 previous matches. There has been one drawn fixture.

When they met earlier this season in the Top 14, Toulouse won 45-23 at home home.

Toulouse Form


Toulouse currently sit at the top of the Top 14 table after winning 15 of their 22 matches thus far. One match has ended in a draw.

In the European Champions Cup, Toulouse beat Munster 40-33 away in the round of 16 and then defeated local rivals Clermont 21-12 at the quarter-final stage.

Since those two victories Toulouse have lost 26-24 to Castres on the road in the Top 14 before bouncing back last week to beat Racing 92 34-16 at home. Toulouse have won 11 of their last 12 European Champions Cup matches so will be confident heading into this fixture.

Toulouse Injuries & Team News


Toulouse played a strong team at the weekend against Racing 92 and are likely to stick with something very similar. Star winger Cheslin Kolbe was given a rest but had to come off the bench in the 37th minutes. He will start at right wing.

Bordeaux Form


Bordeaux are enjoying a fine season in sixth place on the Top 14 table. Their 11 wins in 20 matches have been above expectations but their conquests in Europe have arguably been superior.

After winning their opening two matches of the European Champions Cup, the tournament was suspended due to COVID-19. No further group matches could proceed so the top teams qualified.

In the last 16 of the Champions Cup, Bordeaux put in a very impressive performance to beat Bristol Bears 36-17 at home. They then defeated Racing 92 24-21 in the quarter final and now have their first opportunity to reach the final of Europe’s biggest prize.

Bordeaux Injuries & Team News


Bordeaux will be concerned with their lack of tries in the quarter-final against Racing 92. Matthieu Jalibert was the star, kicking all 24 points and he will be relied upon again.

On the injury front Bordeaux are unharmed. Their last match was over two weeks ago so they could struggle for continuity this weekend.
