Marseille – Toulouse : Preview & Prediction
Olympique de Marseille have the honor of launching this new season against Toulouse Football Club at home and can finally renew with a victory that flees the Olympian club from Nantes (2-1) on July 18. Since that date, Garcia’s defenders alternate draws and defeats against Villareal (1-1), Real Betis (2-3), Sporting CP (1-1) and Bournemouth (2-5). No doubt the group of Marseille would still be ready for this first day of Ligue 1. The TFC is in the same case as his opponent of the day. Winner of Villefranche (5-2) and Ajaccio (1-0), the club of the pink city then chained two against-performances against the promoted Nîmes (0-0) and in front of the English club Crystal Palace (1-4). Toulouse is hoping a lot with the return of Alain Casanova but will have to compose this season without two important elements: the goaltender Lafont gone abroad and the striker Andy Delort who will defend the colors of Montpellier (loan).
Toulouse has not won Marseille since 13 January 2016!
The OM remains on 3 successes and 3 draws in front of the TFC during their last 6 duels.
Last season, at the Vélodrome, Marseille won by 2 goals to 0.
Toulouse remains on 1 draw in front of Nîmes (0-0) and 1 wide loss against Crystal Palace (1-4) in their last two friendly matches.
Marseille also remains on 1 draw in front of Sporting CP and 1 big defeat against Bournemouth (2-5).
The men of Garcia will not want to miss their start this season in a Velodrome that should show full for this opening game.
Olympique de Marseille may temporarily take the lead of this Ligue 1 for 24 hours in case of victory on the Toulouse Football Club. The partners of Adil Rami have a lot of ambition this season and it passes from entry by a first success at home.
