Troyes vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 15th April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes)
Troyes will be the huge underdogs to get anything from this game even at home when they come face to face with Marseille. Troyes are in 18th place but just a couple of wins would dramatically change their position. Form is poor with 4 losses and one draw in their last five games. Their last two wins came against Metz and Lille two other teams that are struggling and at home they have scored just 12 goals and lost 7 times.
The only bright spark for the club is that they haven’t receieved huge losses, recently losing at home to PSG and Nice by the same scoreline of 2-0.
Marseille advanced to the semi-finals of the Europa League on Thursday where they will play Salzburg for a place in the final which is at Lyon’s ground. It’s fair to say that there is confidence, swagger and happiness around the club and they will be happy that they avoided Atletico Madrid and Arsenal.
The Europa semis take place at the end of the month which means that Marseille can concentrate on league football until then. They have a big battle with Lyon for the final Champions League place and both clubs are on 63 points so this couldn’t be more exciting.
Marseille have a very good away record losing just 3 times and have won 55% of games. Coming into this match they are on a 2 game unbeaten run.

Troyes vs Marseille: Prediction
Troyes have a good record over Marseille here, but this season at this moment it’s difficult to see how this can continue. Marseille are fighting for a trophy and a place and Troyes are fighting relegation but they have proven they are only good against similar opposition even at home.
