It has been over 16 years since the Reds made their one and only trip to Toulouse, and a certain unheralded Ukrainian forward Andriy Voronin was the difference between the two sides that day during a Champions League qualifier.

Anyway, fast forward to the present day and Liverpool are in complete control of their Europa League group with a maximum of nine points garnered from their first three games.

Nevertheless, the Merseyside outfit will be hoping for an improved performance from last weekend in the Premier League where they toiled away to Luton before securing a 1-1 draw thanks to a late Luis Diaz equaliser.

Meanwhile, Toulouse have laboured in Ligue 1 this term, and they relinquished a lead to Le Havre before slumping to a 2-1 defeat.

Toulouse are still within a chance of reaching the knockout play-offs as they are third in the table, and a win would throw a cat among the pigeons.

Anyway, I have given you the lowdown on this early evening kick-off by supplying a match preview as well as sharing a couple of betting tips.

Liverpool to make a statement of intent

Jurgen Klopp will have lamented his side’s display against Luton, especially their inability to counter-press effectively, and it was a missed opportunity for the Reds to exert more pressure on Manchester City and Tottenham at the top of the table.

Anyway, they have blitzed through the first three matchdays of the Europa League with consummate ease, netting 10 times and conceding just twice.

Half of the goals scored during their Europa League campaign to date came against Toulouse at Anfield a couple of weeks ago, and the Reds were unstoppable that night.

The Reds broke the lines well and netted at crucial moments. You imagine that Toulouse can’t be as insipid as they were then, but we know Liverpool are strong frontrunners.

For my first pick, I have been more cautious and gone for Liverpool to win & BTTS rather than lean towards the Correct Scoreline. If you like the sound of that outcome, Bet365 is offering a tidy price of 13/8 for you to tuck into.

Our First Prediction

Cody Gakpo at the double

There were a few big guns that started on the bench for Liverpool against Luton before they were introduced later on, and Luis Diaz made the biggest impact.

However, Cody Gakpo has been very impressive this term, and he has hit a purple patch, grabbing four goals in his past eight appearances in all competitions.

Klopp could be tempted to reshuffle the pack, and as mentioned, they could well seal a place in the Round of 16 with victory.

Perhaps the likes of Mohamed Salah will be taken out of the firing line, and Gakpo could well shine again.

To round things off, I have gone with Gakpo to bag a double, and the Dutchman is valued at 17/2 with William Hill to do so.
