Marseille aim for the Champions League
The Provençal have already come out of a mini-vacation having played once again against Lyon, mind you, it was a replay after the earlier meeting was not completed due to fan behaviour. The aforementioned match against a major rival was lost 1:2, Marseille managed a quick goal, but also failed in the end, conceding twice in the last 15 minutes. The team is third in the league, which already entitles them to play in the Champions League qualification, although they need to fight for second place, two points away, then they can get directly into the group round. Three players will miss this meeting, all of them on their national teams.
Angers are unstable midfielders
The season started optimistically for Angers, although it was not possible to keep the competition at the top of the standings for long. The club has now slipped to 12th place, winning just one meeting out of five. In the last round, there was a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of top outsider Saint-Etienne. The team are coming into this meeting with major personnel losses. Four players are away at international duty, while three others are out injured.
In the first round, the teams rolled out a boring 0-0 friendly, even the statistics show that there were few chances for goals, 15 shots for two and only two in the box.
Even from the standings, it’s obvious that Marseille will be favourites for this pairing. It is quite possible that the game will not turn out to be spectacular again, so it makes sense to think about the draw total. We decided to bet on a clean win for the home side, the Provençalers are strongly motivated, and Angers have a lot of personnel losses.
