Match preview

Two sides fresh off altogether contrasting starts to the Ligue 1 campaign are set to face off at the Stade Velodrome on Saturday, October 8th.

The matchup in question will see high-flying Olympique Marseille play host to struggling AC Ajaccio.

Starting with the former, few would likely have predicted just how impressive Marseille would continue to look over the early months of the term.

Putting the high-profile respective departures of boss Jorge Sampaoli and star defender William Saliba firmly behind them, OM have matched runaway title favourites Paris Saint-Germain almost stride for stride through the first nine weeks of the French top-flight campaign.

A 3-0 drubbing of Angers in their post-international break return to action last weekend made it seven wins from nine on the domestic front, with a subsequent three-goal thrashing of Sporting CP in the Champions League pointing towards more positive things to come on the continent, too.

And who would bet against Igor Tudor’s carrying their rich vein of form beyond the coming round of Ligue 1 fixtures?

Next up for Marseille comes a meeting with an Ajaccio outfit toiling in their efforts to re-adapt to the rigours of top-flight football.

All told, since their return to Ligue 1, L’ours have picked up just a solitary victory, slipping to defeat in seven of their nine league fixtures.

The latest of these fruitless outings came last Sunday, when a late show on the part of Clermont Foot culminated in Olivier Pantaloni’s side being put to the sword by three goals to one.

We at 101, as a result, are tipping Marseille to add to the woes of basement-dwelling Ajaccio on Saturday evening, emerging comfortable victors come the full-time whistle at the Velodrome.
