Marseille will be the big favourites to start the campaign with all three points and fans are optimistic after a good run last season that L’OM can challenge PSG for the league.

The home side have not been too busy this summer in the transfer market relying more on small fees and trying to rebuild their defence and they have spent less than 50m euros which has upset some fans, as the club promised two seasons ago that they would spend at least 80m euros a season.

Toulouse for their budget have been busy spending 24m euros and selling 12m worth. One eye catching capture was Max Gradel from English club Bournemouth and Toulouse have brought in 8 new players to try to compete for a higher position this season.

Marseille vs Toulouse: Head to Head

  • Home or away Toulouse have only beaten Marseille on 1 occasion since 2012.
  • The last time the teams met here Marseille won 2-0.
  • Toulouse have not won at Stade Velodrome in 11 years.

Marseille vs Toulouse: Prediction

Marseille are the big odds on favourites to win this game and on paper they should have few troubles.

But this is the first game of the season which doesn’t always go to script, there is no form of course to speak of, although we do know that Toulouse have a dreadful record coming here.

Because Marseille have drawn many games against Toulouse in the past and because we need to get a feel for how the club will play this season we will opt for more goals to be scored in the latter stages of this game as our main bet.
