Strasbourg vs Marseille Prediction

OM has had an alright run of away games in the league this season, as their only loss came against the defending champions Lille. 

With that being said the hosts have been impressive at home however they have dropped points against quality opponents, already thrice in the season. 

Further considering the one sided h2h record they would have to settle for a point at most at home.

Habib Diallo is the league’s joint-third highest goal scorer. The Senegalese who has made 10 goal contributions for Strasbourg this season is likely to find the back of the net this Sunday.
