Team Form

Evian Thonon Gaillard

Evian is on the verge of entering the relegation zone after their poor performance during their last two (2) matches. Nice thrashed them with a 3-1 victory while Saint Etienne scored a narrow 1-0 win over them.


The consequence of those defeats was devastating. While other clubs have managed to move higher in the table, it seemed that they are stuck on the table’s 16th spot. Even the slightest mistake can push them in the dreaded arena. With only a single victory to boot during its last six (6) matches, it is a bit hard for the club to take the upper hand against the strong Marseille.



Marseille’s recent performance is neither inspiring nor disappointing. The club’s number of wins, losses and stalemates are equally distributed and this probably explains why they are on the 6th spot of the Ligue 1 table. Perhaps the only aspect in which disappointment creeps in is that they could have ranked higher.


But despite the “could-haves,” the odds are still in favor of Marseille. Pitted against Evian, it is a little bit easier for them to secure a win. They had the upper hand in majority of their previous matches and perhaps, this one, is just a repeat of their triumphant feat.


Online betting top pick: Marseille

Marseille will most likely dominate the match, given the fact that they have a better form. Moreover, their unquestionable record of dominating every encounter that they had is a testament to their strength. Yet, since Evian looks forward to veering away from the relegation, Marseille cannot expect an easy breezy win over this one.
