Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Two sides that will be wanting to get off to a winning start in the new Ligue 1 campaign, last years Europa League finalists Marseille will welcome Toulouse to Stade Vélodrome on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, after what was a standout year for Marseille, although they were beaten in the Europa League final by Atletico Madrid, The Blues did book their spot in the Top Four and gained Champions League football. In their 38 games last season, Marseille won 22, drew 11 and lost five, scoring 80 and conceding 47 in return. However, while many are optimistic about the new season, the hosts have struggled for form entering the new year. Conceding five against Bournemouth last week, they have now only managed to pick up one win in their seven pre-season matches and did not successfully record one clean sheet.
As for the visitors, it was once again another difficult year for Toulouse and they only managed to secure their Ligue 1 status after coming past lower league Ajaccio in the relegation playoff. After 38 games last season, they secured nine wins, 10 draws and 19 defeats, scoring 38 and conceding 54 in return. They finished the year with a points tally of 38 and just a single point adrift of the drop zone. However, while it was a rough campaign last year, Toulouse have impressed during pre-season. Aside from a 4-1 loss to Premier League side Crystal Palace, they were unbeaten in their other four pre-season outings, scoring eight times. Backing both teams to score seems like the smartest bet for Friday night.
