Reason For Marseille vs Toulouse Predictions

  • Marseille have won 12 of their last 15 matches in all competitions and currently sit 2nd in Ligue 1.
  • The hosts have won eight and drawn three of their twelve games at the Vélodrome this season and have kept clean sheets in five of their last six there.
  • Toulouse currently sit bottom of the table and have lost 13 of their last 14 matches. However, they have shown incremental improvement in their last two games with just the one goal conceded (0-0, 0-1).
  • The visitors have failed to score in five of their last six outings.

Magnificent Marseille keep on marching

André Villas-Boas’ men bounced back from their 0-0 draw with Bordeaux to win 2-0 on Wednesday. Their talisman Dimitri Payet was once again in amongst the goals as he scored the opener to take his tally to seven for the season. That’s already more than he’s scored in every season since 2015/16. He has five in his last eight in all competitions and has been an integral part to Marseille’s success this season.

They have now won 12 of their last 15 matches in all competitions with three draws interrupting this succession of victories. They’ve netted 27 goals in this time with five clean sheets in their last six showing the quality that they possess at both ends of the pitch. 

Les Olympiens have been especially impressive at the Vélodrome with the loss on the opening day of the season their only defeat in all competitions so far. They’ve won eight and drawn three of the eleven since then with 20 goals converted and this will bring them a lot of confidence as they welcome bottom club Toulouse to town.

Toulouse propping up the table

The visitors have had a turbulent campaign so far but three managers have all struggled to rectify it so far with Denis Zanko the latest to be in the hot seat. Les Violets have lost 13 of their last 14 matches in all competitions with last week’s 0-0 draw with second bottom Amiens the only silver lining in this run of misery. 

They put up a good fight on Wednesday against Strasbourg but ultimately failed to create anything of real quality as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat. This was the fifth time in their last six games that they’ve failed to find the back of the net and with 13 going in at the other end in this period, they are in trouble.

The Vélodrome to play its part?

Marseille have been consistently scoring and we’re backing them to do so again here as Toulouse have been simply awful this season. However, les Violets’ last two games suggest an incremental improvement at the back so we doubt it’ll be a whitewash from the home side. Nevertheless, with their incredible defence, we ultimately see this finishing 2-0 to Marseille.
