The Orange Velodrome is where Les Phocéens will play host to Les Girondins on the 15th of August. It is the second game of the Ligue 1 for both teams this season, and each side will be eager to register 3 points on their campaign sheet.
Marseille have been on a remarkable streak, from the pre-season friendlies where they bested the current Europa League Champions 2-1 to their first game of the season where they were better than Montpellier by one goal in a 5-goal thriller. It was a most entertaining fixture, with playmaker Dmitri Payet striking twice to cancel out the home team’s two-goal lead and hand all three points to the visitors.
Cengiz Ūnder was actually the first to hit the opposition goal to cut down Montpellier’s lead to one goal through a cutback pass from Konrad de la Fuente. Payet then equalized in the 75th minute through a curler of a freekick. The danger-man wasn’t done until the 80th minute when he blazed through the opposition defense to net his second for the night and the final nail to the game’s coffin. At the game’s end, Marseille stands at 3rd position on the Ligue 1 UberEats.
Meanwhile, things haven’t been as rosy over at the Bordeaux camp; they have recorded two draws and one loss in their last three games. The most recent was their league opening game against Clermont Foot, where they were netted twice without response in the game’s dying minutes.
