Marseille will be aiming to continue their unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 season when they travel to face Angers on Wednesday at 8pm (UK time).
Angers suffered their first defeat of the season at the weekend, as they were trashed 4-1 at home by Nantes. They are now looking to get straight back to winning ways, but their head-to-head record against Marseille isn’t good at all. Angers have won just once in their last 11 meetings with OM, while losing four in the process. Prior to their loss against Nantes, Angers had done well to win their opening two home matches in Ligue 1 against Lyon and Rennes. Despite the recent loss, Angers still sit fourth in Ligue 1 after six games, just one point behind third-placed Lens.
Marseille, meanwhile, are flying high under the tutelage of coach Jorge Sampaoli. OM have only lost two of their 17 games under Sampaoli across all competitions, with Nice and Saint-Etienne the two sides to emerge victorious (both last season). Sampaoli’s boys have won four and drawn one of their five league games so far this season, and also drew 1-1 at Lokomotiv Moscow in their opening Europa League group stage game last week. Away from home, Marseille have done well to win their two league trips of the season, beating Montpellier 3-2 and Monaco 2-0.
Can Angers recover after their humiliating 4-1 home loss against Nantes? Or will Marseille grab a third consecutive league win away from home?
