If you didn’t know what the motto of “l’OM” means in German, you could see it on Wednesday evening at the latest. Dmitri Payet went straight to the goal in the top game against St. Etienne and scored the goal for the lead in an unconventional way – from an almost impossible angle.

Marseille won 2-0 in St. Etienne in the end and scored important points in the race for second place in the table. This weekend is a comparatively easier task. The “Phocéens” meet at the bottom of the table in Toulouse at the Stade Vélodrome.
As expected, Marseille are favorites against Toulouse according to bookmaker odds. We would support this assessment and tend towards the match between Marseille vs. Toulouse on a prediction of a home win for the “Phocéens”, which we justify among other things with the strong home series of “l’OM”.
Marseille – Statistics & current form
Olympique Marseille scored an important away win at St. Etienne during the week, thus expanding the points cushion at Stade Rennes. In the away game against the French champions, “l’OM” took the lead relatively early after a stroke of genius by Dmitri Payet. Afterwards it was a balanced duel over long distances.
In the final phase, there was the preliminary decision with the second goal from Marseille. Coach André Villas-Boas will not have much to complain about about the appearance of his team. The strong home series is to be continued at the weekend. Across all competitions, “l’OM” has recently been unbeaten for eleven home games in a row and is therefore a big favorite in the match against Toulouse FC.
After the strong results, a loss of points against the bottom of Ligue 1 would be fatal. Olympique Marseille had recently improved, especially from a defensive point of view. The “Phocéens” have not conceded a single goal in the last four league games. So there was a good improvement with regard to the vulnerable defensive from the first half of the season.
In addition, Marseille has recently been spared major personnel worries. Florian Thauvin is currently the only missing long-term injured in the “Phocéens” squad. Since the cup defeat against AS Monaco almost four months ago, there have been no compulsory defeats for Marseille. In the meantime, “l’OM” has already been unbeaten 15 competitive matches in a row.
If the “Phocéens” win the home game against the bottom of the table on Saturday evening, odds of 1.35 for tip 1 can be tapped at Marseille against Toulouse.

Toulouse – Statistics & current form
Toulouse, meanwhile, cannot find a way out of the formal crisis. With 13 points, the violet-whites rank in the last place in the table and are among the hottest relegation candidates this season. The saving bank is currently eleven points away. Relegation may therefore only seem to be able to maintain the class.
According to the latest results, there is not much to be said for catching up with the bottom of the table. So far, the violet-whites have hardly been able to convince this season. With 21 goals, Toulouse is the second weakest offensive in Ligue 1. In addition, the bottom of the table with 48 goals has the worst defense in the league.
Toulouse have suffered 13 losses in their last 14 competitive matches. Only in the basement duel against SC Amiens did the violet-whites win a point. Elsewhere, Toulouse FC conceded an average of 2.33 goals per away game. In the last three away games, the bottom of Ligue 1 remained without a goal.
The away game in Marseille will feature Toulouse FC without Sanogo, Sidibe, Gradel and Shoji. All four players will pause due to injury. Interim coach Denis Zanko is unlikely to make any changes to the starting eleven with the manageable options in the squad.
Probable lineup of Toulouse:
➦ Kalinic – Sylla, Gabrielsen, Diakite, Moreira – Kone, Sangare, Boisgard – Said, Koulouris, Dossevi
