Match Preview & Team News
Olympique Marseille will begin their Coupe de France campaign on Sunday when they will be massive favourites to advance into the last 32 round past the second-division likes of Valenciennes. It’s been four years since the two sides have last locked horns, and back then they were battling it out in the elite class of the French football.
The Phocians have earned the domestic double over the Athenians back in the 2013/14 season. They have been especially dominant in clashes at Stade Velodrome where Marseille have won five and drawn three of eight H2H ties with Valenciennes.
The visitors now play the Ligue 2 football and they are nowhere near challenging the promotion to the top flight at this stage. They sit 13th in the Ligue 2 standings and they will head into this on the back of a demolishing 5-1 away loss at Reims in their last fixture in 2017. Reginald Ray’s side has reached this stage of the competition by eliminating the lower-division sides of FC Troyes and Evreux without conceding a single goal during the process.
Nonetheless, the Athenians will be massive underdogs here against the fourth-placed side of Ligue 1. Rudi Garcia’s men should be motivated to make a deep run in Coupe de France after they suffered the Coupe de la Ligue elimination to Rennes in the last 16 round back in mid-December.
We can certainly expect Garcia to send a pretty strong lineup on the pitch this Sunday likely featuring Kostas Mitroglou who is still struggling to find his top shape after arriving at Velodrome this summer.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Valenciennes have been very easy to break down lately and they’ve shipped as many as five goals in their last league affair. We’ll thus go with Marseille to ease past their opponents on Sunday and win the match by at least two goals at the odds of 1/2.
Goals Market Prediction
The Over 2.5 goals FT should be a banker bet under these circumstances and we’ll take it with the high stakes at the odds of 4/9.
