Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Marseille win
Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport
Hoping to widen their buffer in the Champions League spots on Wednesday night, a high-flying Marseille will make the trip to Troyes.
Starting with the hosts, while Troyes might have opened 2023 with a much-needed 3-2 victory away at Strasbourg, it appears that might have just been a minor blip for Patrick Kisnorbo’s side. Last seen over the weekend crashing out of the Coupe de France thanks to a routine 2-0 defeat against Lille, the Blues almost find themselves sat in Ligue 1 limbo. Landing just a single top-flight victory from their last nine outings – a run that stems all the way back to September 18th – the former Melbourne City boss will also have a continued headache over his side’s defensive struggles. It should also be noted, without a single Ligue 1 win in front of their own supporters since the end of August, Troyes are without a victory against Wednesday’s guests since way back in 2012.
As for the visitors, only continuing to impress on either side of the World Cup’s winter break, there is no doubt that the mood in Marseille’s camp will be at a red-hot high. Last seen on Ligue 1 duties opening 2023 with a 2-1 victory away at Montpellier, Igor Tudor’s men are sat in pole position to claim another Champions League finish this season. Gaining plenty of plaudits from across France, the Phocaeans have taken 13 points from their last five top-flight outings. With that run stemming all the way back to October 22nd, it also appears that Marseille have found a real clinical edge in the final third. With their eye-catching purple patch highlighted by a 6-1 romp at home against Toulouse last month, Tudor’s side should be looking to lay down another marker in midweek.
