Marseille to face sixteenth RCSA on Saturday at the Stade de La Meinau, with Igor Tudor’s team currently occupying fifth place in the League.

RC Strasburg have so far accrued nine points in this season of the Ligue 1

RCSA drew 2-2 when they visited Tolouse FC, their disappointment was further deepened, having previously drawn against Lille, they must now try and get a positive result from this fixture.

Also, RCSA have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. Now they have 1 matches won, 5 games lost and 6 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in sixteenth place, with a total of nine points having won one game, drawn six games, and lost five fixtures.

RCSA have drawn three meetings and lost three fixtures of their six League matches at home this season.

RC Strasburg will have 12 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

RCSA are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Julien Stephan is concerned that Saturday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players.

Olympique de Marseille go into this game with 23 points secured

Marseille come to this match on the back of a 0-1 home loss against RC Lens at Orange Velodrome.

Also, with an unfortunate Marseille that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Igor Tudor’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With a fifth position in the league and 7 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws, they currently have 23 points in the League having won seven fixtures, drawn two matches, and lost three games.

Marseille will travel to RCSA with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with three victories, one dart, and one defeat.

A victory for Olympique de Marseille would put them on 26 points.

Good atacking and defensive team

Marseille have shown a decent defensive solidity, having only conceded nine goals in their previous fixtures. Marseille have a good scoring record this season, with 20 netted so far (19 from open play and one penalty). Their stand out attacking players have been Alexis Sanchez (4), Luis Suarez (3), and Nuno Tavares (3).

It is likely that two key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Igor Tudor and his Marseille team.
