One of the most interesting clashes of the round is set to be played on Sunday when Olympique Marseille will try and maintain the perfect record against a tricky opponent of Angers SCO at their Stade Velodrome.
Les Phoceens are yet to concede a goal in the new Ligue 1 season as they clinched back-to-back wins over Dijon and Nantes.
Cameroonian striker Clinton N’jie bagged a brace in the first match with Dijon, while the likes of Valere Germain and Dmitri Payet are yet to score their first goals in the new Ligue 1 season.
Rudi Garcia’s men will come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Slovenian Domzale in the first leg of their Europa League playoffs tie.
Stephane Moulin can be proud of the job he has been doing with Angers SCO at the start of the new season.
The visitors are enjoying a hot run of form with four wins and a draw in last five matches (including last three pre-season friendlies).
The attacking line has been functioning great as Angers bagged two goals in each of their opening two fixtures against Bordeaux and Amiens SC.

Angers won two of their first head to head meetings, but Les Phoceens have dominated the tie ever since winning two of three remaining encounters with Les Scoistes.
