FRANCE: Ligue 1

Marseille – Angers 1 1.65 1-1 lose

Marseille played a game in Slovenia yesterday ( on Thursday) and will host Angers on sunday game. One can say there will be fatigue with journey and 2 matches in 1 week. But Marseille has built very deep squad to rotate players and it is just the beginning of season. Therefore, It is very early to speak about tiredness effect. Marseille was very active on transfer window, several players left the club while very high promising players joined to Rudi Garcia. Especially, winger Thauvin and striker Germain will add a lot quality this year. ( both 10 mil.€). Young left back Amavi also give better signals than current Evra. Marseille got 2 victories in first 2 league games and they were very strong at home last year. They were 13-4-2 at home games, 2 upsets were against 1st and 2nd teams Monaco-PSG. 10 of 13 victories were more than 2 goals and Marseille did clean sheet in 13 of 19 home games. Angers sold their best player Nicolas Pepe to Lille for 10 mil.€ and striker Famara ( scored 8) to Bristol. Their most of new transfers are under 22 age. Angers has now 4 points, beat weak Amiens last week. Angers lost 12 of 19 away games last year, lost 6 of 8 meetings against Top-8 teams and conceded at least 2 goals in those 6 of 8 games. Marseille won the last meeting 3-0 last year here and I expect Marseille to win this game.
