Tip Reasoning

Rudi Garcia probably didn’t enjoy much of his winter break as his job security is almost nonexistent at this point; fans and pundits alike are calling for his sacking with poor performances seeing Marseille currently sitting 6th in Ligue 1 and finishing bottom of their Champions League group with just a single point to their name. 

The team has suffered some horrific defeats in recent history with Frankfurt (0-4), Apollon (1-3), Nantes (2-3) and Montpellier (0-3) all thrashing the Olympians in games that Marseille never looked likely to win. Despite all the talent in the team like Dimitri Payet, Florian Thauvin and Morgan Sanson the side just haven’t been able to sort themselves out and the winter break was probably more of a rehab session than a holiday. 

They have scored five goals in their last seven games, conceding 12 in that time. They have actually only kept two clean sheets in their last twelve matches as Adil Rami and Rolando have both looked well past it, while Boubacar Kamara and Duje Caleta-Car still seem some way off the mark for the expectations of this Marseille side.

Andrézieux currently sit exactly three divisions below Marseille in 6th place of the fourth tier of French football. Despite their current league standing, they have actually won seven of their last nine games in what has been such an impressive run for the team under Jean-Noël Cabezas. They have scored 15 goals in their last nine matches and have overturned their horrible start to the season, which saw them lose their opening three games. Andrézieux are slowly climbing up the table but this will be the first time in the Coupe de France that they will face a team in a higher division. 

However, it has been quite a while since Andrézieux have had such a large opponent come to town so they will surely give this match their all following the break, which is why we think they could nick a goal here. Marseille have been rather lacklustre recently and have only won two of their last ten away matches. Andrézieux on the other hand have had so much success at home with four wins and a draw in their last seven at L’Envol Stadium. We think that Andrézieux will surprise a lot of spectators but Marseille and Rudi Garcia can’t lose this match, or else major questions will be asked, so we’re going to predict a narrow 2-1 victory for the Ligue 1 side.
