Olympique Marseille vs Fenerbahce
International Club Friendlies
Date: Saturday, 15th July 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET.
Fenerbahce will be hoping to avoid a defeat for the first time in pre-season this Friday when they are about to take on Olympique Marseille.
Both sides will have sky-high ambitions from the new season having signed high quality acquisitions and we are definitely up for a thrilling evening of football this Saturday even though it is only a friendly.
Rudi Garcia will have a star-studded lineup in the new Ligue 1 campaign featuring the likes of Luiz Gustavo, Valere Germain Adil Rami, Clinton N’Jie, Lucas Ocampos, Dmitri Payet etc.
The Argentine left winger (who returned from loan) was on target in Wednesday’s friendly with Romanian Viotorul, as well as former Spurs’ member Clinton N’Jie who bagged a brace.
We can expect to see the likes of Valere Germain and Luiz Gustavo on the pitch against Fener as well.
The visitors came third at the end of the last term of Super Lig and they are determined to join the battle for the very top of the standings in the season ahead of us.
This is why the team the likes of Mathieu Valbuena, Mehmet Ekici, Nabil Dirar and Carlos Kameni during the summer transfer-window.
The former Monaco’s right winger Nabil Dirar bagged the only goal for Aykut Kocaman’s men in the 2-1 defeat to Sporting Lisbon in mid-week.

The two sides played a pre-season friendly at just about the same time two years ago when the Turkish side claimed a 3-1 victory at Ayfon Ataturk Stadi.
They have also previously met in the group phase of Europa League in 2012/13 season when Fener claimed four points in two games with the French team.

Both sides showed attacking football in previous friendlies and both teams to score seems to be the best of the betting options set at the 3/5 odds.
