Toulouse host the reigning Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.
After giving in to nominative determinism during the 2019/20 season, Toulouse returned to the French top flight this summer, beginning the campaign with five points from their opening four matches.
PSG had their wings clipped by Monaco with a 1-1 draw last weekend. The principality outfit became the first club this season to avoid defeat against the free-scoring side from the capital with a measured display of containment (and a little luck).
Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming meeting between this pair.

Toulouse team news
Toulouse have lost last season's top scorer in Ligue 2, Rhys Healey, until April after the Manchester-born striker tore his ACL earlier this month. Nathan N'Goumou remains a doubt with a groin problem while the left-back Issiaga Sylla has missed the last two outings with fitness concerns.
Manager Philippe Montanier bemoaned the dearth of attacking options at his disposal for the club's 3-1 loss against Nantes last weekend. "We were missing some strong elements," he explained. "We only had two attacking players on the bench." With just three days to prepare for the visit of PSG, those forward options haven't been dramatically altered.

Toulouse vs PSG score prediction
Monaco's strategic muzzling of PSG, limiting their hosts to a second-half penalty, offers hope for elite opponents on the horizon that this seemingly imperious iteration of Les Parisiens is fallible.
While Toulouse's top-flight return has been encouraging, PSG - despite their recent slip-up - are an entirely different calibre of opposition to their early season foes thus far.
Prediction: Toulouse 0-3 PSG
