Marseille take on the visitors Toulouse in the round 5 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Sunday, September 17th at Stade Vélodrome (Marseille).
Marseille have had a fairly good start to the championship. The team hasn't lost after 4 rounds, but there's a noticeable trend where Marseille tends to draw in away matches while winning at home. In the upcoming match, Marseille are likely to add another victory to their record. Toulouse, on the other hand, hasn't been particularly impressive. For Marseille, Toulouse are one of the most comfortable opponents in the league. They haven't lost to Toulouse since 2013, despite more than 20 meetings during that time. In the previous season, Marseille even crushed Toulouse with a score of 6-1. It's not certain that Marseille will dominate Toulouse to that extent this time, but they should secure a victory based on their class.

Toulouse hasn't been the strong team that consistently ranks near the top 5 for quite some time. A couple of years ago, they even got relegated to a lower division. Last season, they finished in 13th place and were relatively weak. The start of the new season for Toulouse hasn't been of high quality, with only a win in the first round followed by draws and losses. Now they face one of the most uncomfortable opponents for Toulouse in the French championship. Moreover, it's an away match, and as I mentioned earlier, Marseille are currently following the trend of winning at home. There don't seem to be many prospects for Toulouse to accumulate points in this match.
Marseille are progressing through the tournament rather well. This presents an excellent opportunity for the hosts to extend their winning streak to 5 matches. The opponent for Marseille are straightforward, and they tend to secure victories against Toulouse easily. This meeting should be no exception, and my choice for a bet would be Marseille with a -1 handicap.
Prediction for the match: Marseille to win with -1.0 handicap.
