Having replaced Alain Casanova earlier in the week, new Toulouse boss Dominique Arribage would surely have wanted an easier start to life as a Ligue 1 coach than a local derby.
However, the new man will realise that he will not be afforded a bedding-in period as Le TFC coach due to the club’s perilous position in the Ligue 1 table.
Having lost to fellow strugglers Racing Club de Lens last weekend, Toulouse begin the weekend in 18th place, three points off 17th-place Evian Thonon Gaillard.
Arribage hasn’t been slow to make his mark and has axed number one Zacharie Boucher from the matchday squad meaning that Ali Ahamada will likely start between the sticks.
Bordeaux haven’t lost in eight games, however, and will look to extend Toulouse’s four-game winless streak and push their neighbours closer to the relegation trapdoor.
