      Tip Reasoning

      It’s not been an ideal start to the season for Marseille. An opening weekend 1-0 defeat to Caen was enough to send Bielsa packing, and the club struggled to bounce back last weekend, suffering a 1-0 to Stade Reims.

      Still, the new manager has been decided and this weekend’s game is at home against another side that has yet to pick up a win.

      Marseille are clearly a club with some frailty. They do not look like a side capable of replicating the performance that saw them storm to the top of the table early during the 2014-15 Ligue 1 season. Nevertheless, they are a squad geared towards playing positive football and Michel’s first job will be to get some assortment of the front line playing good football.

      Troyes were held to a draw by newly promoted Ajaccio in their home opener. Their second game was going much worse at halftime, they had lost a player to a red card and were 3-1 down to Nice. Somehow, they battled back to draw the game 3-3. It wasn’t all out attack mode, but this club quietly effective at both ends of the field in terms of set pieces and they will have been boosted by the guts and determination that they showed in fighting back last week.

      In the game against Nice, a lot of positive play was run down the right side through Camus. He won’t have an easy match-up against Marseille, but if he can be a source of creativity once again, then Troyes have a chance to assert some pressure in this game.

      There will be goals in this game. Both teams will be determined to be positive, both teams will feel an increased urgency to win. This game won’t settle down into a settled rhythm early and one goal will surely bring two. We see both teams getting on the scoresheet in what should be an entertaining contest.

      We’d like to see one of the two teams get their first win, but we think there’s a real possibility that the deadlock will remain unbroken with both clubs entering week four of the Ligue 1 season with a few concerns.
