Toulouse FC of Ligue 1 has scored goals more frequently than any other team in the top five European leagues since the new year. In 2023, the side coached by Philippe Montanier has scored an incredible 30 goals. With two fewer goals, Atalanta BC and Manchester United are in second place. The top 5 is completed by Real Madrid (23) and Barcelona (24). In fact, Toulouse is in excellent shape. They have played 10 games so far in 2023 and have won eight of them, drawn one, and barely lost one to league-leading PSG. This past Sunday, Toulouse FC shocked podium-bound Stade Rennais with three fast goals in the first half that furious Rennes coach Bruno Genesio.
Toulouse’s improved play has propelled them to tenth position in Ligue 1. Le TéFéCé presently has a 14-point lead over the four-team relegation zone and is on set to win Ligue 1 for the second consecutive season. Montanier, the former Nottingham Forest manager, did not get over away, reminding reporters that Toulouse defeated fifth-tier Lannion 7-1 in a Coupe de France clash earlier this year. “We could have Europe’s finest offense in 2023, but Bayern don’t play Lannion,” he told France Bleu Occitanie.
