Marseille have made a strong start to the new Ligue 1 season, and they will be looking to continue their unbeaten start when they host Toulouse this weekend. The visitors will be looking to end their three-game winless run.
Ligue 1 Preview
Marseille threatened to get involved in the Ligue 1 title race at stages last term, and they are in the mix once again after the opening four rounds of fixtures this term. The French giants come into their first match following the international break having gone four matches without defeat in the league, but they will need to bounce back on Sunday after a recent draw.
A victory on Sunday could lift them to the top of the standings, if results go their way. Marseille were last in action on September 1, as they played out a 1-1 draw on the road against Nantes. Ismalia Sarr opened the scoring for Marseille after four minutes, and they looked set to add to that advantage after Nantes were reduced to ten men. However, the hosts equalised before the break, and were able to hold off the French heavyweights in the second period.
Toulouse will be on the road this weekend, as they look to end a three-game winless run in Ligue 1. However, they have lost just once over their previous three matches, with two fixtures over that period ending in draws.
Their most recent tie came in their fixture before the international break, as they threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at home against Clermont Foot. Toulouse appeared to be coasting toward maximum points in that fixture after they raced into a healthy advantage inside the opening 14 minutes, but defensive lapses ultimately cost them the victory.
Marseille vs Toulouse Head to Head
The hosts have dominated the previous clashes between these sides, as Marseille have won each of the last eight against Toulouse. That includes a healthy 6-1 victory in this exact fixture last season. In fact, Marseille have scored eleven goals in their previous three home matches against their rivals this weekend.
Marseille vs Toulouse Prediction
Marseille have an excellent record in this fixture, and that looks incredibly difficult to overlook when making a selection for this fixture on Sunday. Therefore, we will be siding with the home side landing maximum points with a comfortable 3-0 scoreline.
