The Coupe de France will lighten up with this all Ligue 1 game as Toulouse prepare to take on Marseille at Stadium Municipal on Sunday afternoon, 8th January 2017.

Toulouse are at 9th place in the French Ligue 1 standings and Marseille are in 6th position but only four points separates the two teams. The clubs have had different fortunes where Toulouse started strongly this campaign and Marseille were poor but that has switched now.

Still Toulouse have quite a strong home record where from 9 matches they have lost just twice. Marseille have lost 50% of their games away from home but they have improved recently where they have gone their last 3 games on the road unbeaten.

Toulouse vs Marseille: Prediction

This match will be dominated in midfield with both sides playing the same formations and it will be little matters that could settle this tie. We don’t expect to see many goals if any. The weather will be a huge factor, it is freezing all over France even on Sunday afternoon and we should expect a fairly dull game, these two clubs would rather this was a Ligue 1 match and not another cup fixture.
