Deschamps has recently reiterated his commitment to the defending champions as they bid to reign in on surprise package Lille and with the likes of Loic Remy, Andre-Pierre Gignac, Andre Ayew and Lucho Gonzalez have a side fully capable of that.
This weekend’s opponents are Toulouse who are experiencing a bad run of recent form after a season that began with promise winning the opening 4 matches. Recently and Toulouse have only won 1 in the last 7 games losing 5 and with Marseille gunning for the title, L’OM will fancy another 3 points against the side they beat in November.

Since losing to Hannover Louis van Gaal’s side have won 3 on the bounce scoring 9 goals in the process. The Bavarians are an attacking force especially away from with all 5 of Bayern Munich’s last 5 away games featuring at least 3 goals.
