Looking at Marseille’s last six games, we can see that five of those games resulted in goals, and five of those games also saw goal breaches. It will be fascinating to see if that pattern holds going into this next game.
Looking at their previous performances, Marseille has won all four of their league games against Angers SCO. In their last four league games played at home, they have not lost.
Angers SCO and its visiting supporters will be hoping for a better outcome after losing to Monaco in their most recent match in Ligue 1 play. In that contest, Angers SCO owned 61% of the ball and 3 of its 10 shot attempts were successful.
Abdallah Sima (64′) was the lone player for Angers SCO to register a goal. Monaco, on the other hand, made 14 attempts at goal, scoring on six of them. For Monaco, goals were scored by Aleksandr Golovin (45′) and Myron Boadu (60′).
