Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.
Troyes were promoted to Ligue 1, following their title-winning performance in the French second division in the preceding season.The club should be content if they manage to stay up in the league at the end of the season, as they have not stayed up in Ligue 1 for more than a season the last 2 times the team competed in the division.
Marseille on the other hand following their run in the Champions League last season did not make it to the competition following their 5th place finish last season. Being the only French team to lift the trophy they should be looking to finish in one of the UCL spots.

Marseille vs Troyes Prediction
Despite drawing a lot of their games the hosts are undefeated in their last 5 league games. They will face a side who are off the back of 2 consecutive losses and have won just twice on the road this season. Marseille are unlikely to drop points this Sunday.
The Phocaeans’ last 4 matches in the league did not involve more than 2 goals. At the same time, they have conceded less than a goal on average in the league this season. While the visitors have scored less than a goal on average. This fixture should not be a high scoring one.
