Strasbourg vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 3rd May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg is one of the very few teams that have remained winless in the last four match-days.
Fans could not fault them for being complacent though. They are already out of the playoff contention, and they are safe from the threats of the boot as well.
The team can find pride in one fact, which is, they have scored the most number of goals, except for the top three teams in the table.
Marseille sits just below the fourth spot in the Ligue 1 standings and needs to overcome a deficit of five points, from the next available 12.
With nothing to lose, they will definitely go in for the kill in the remaining four fixtures.
