Toulouse vs Marseille
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Toulouse are in 15th and there is a small chance they could still get caught up in relegation but it is very small as every team below them would have to win their last two games and in reality Toulouse should be fine even though they have been in poor form lately.
The home side have no wins in the past month and have drawn 3 of their last four games in the league. Last weekend it was a bore 0-0 result against Amiens.
The good news for the club is that they are unbeaten in their last 3 games at home with a win over Nantes and draws against Lille and Rennes, those matches were all tricky on paper and at home the club have proven not to be an easy side to beat, with just five losses this season.
Marseille have blown it in recent weeks and their hopes of European football ended when they lost 3-0 at home to Lyon. It means that the club come into this game with nothing to play for and it is clear that the players will now just want the season to end.
Away from home Marseille have lost 9 games this season and won just 1 match in their last five.
Toulouse vs Marseille: Head to Head
Earlier in the season Marseille had little trouble and in the reverse match beat Toulouse 4-0.
Last season in this fixture Marseille won 2-1.
Toulouse have not beaten Marseille in the league since 2012 and have not won when at home since 2007.
Toulouse vs Marseille: Prediction
Marseille have fantastic record over Toulouse but this is a strange game because we can’t see Marseille playing at 100% and staying focused. Toulouse’s form has really improved at home in recent weeks and we are going to opt to see an upset here and back the home team. They will be able to create good chances.
At the same time, we should stick with minimum stakes too we must remember Marseille have the better players, but it just seems difficult to believe that they will be focused for this game, and the value lies with the home side.
