OM Marseille Garcia Ligue 1 L1
The hosts have not had a good season start at home for a while and will hope to set the record right this time.

Nine-time French Ligue 1 champions Olympique Marseille open their season against Dijon at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday evening.

Les Phocéens had a disappointing 2016/2017 in the French top flight as they finished fifth. They were never in title contention as they ended up a massive 32 points behind champions Monaco. Rudi Garcia’s men are (1.40) to kick off their season to a winning start with LionsBet.

The Mustards were almost close to relegating last season but managed to finish 16th, narrowly escaping danger by just one point. Oliver Dall’Oglio’s charges enter this game as clear underdogs at odds of (8.25) with the same firm.

A stalemate stands at odds of (5.00).

Marseille are winless in their last five season openers at home with the last victory coming in 2004/2005 against Bordeaux. This could make Dijon walk out of the Velodrome by avoiding defeat at (2.25).

Garcia’s side are however unbeaten in their last 11 Ligue 1 games dating back to February 2017. The men in white are (1.07) for a win or draw.

The Mustards have only won one of their last 24 away games in the league. With a very little chance of them causing an upset, their hosts are tipped to score in both halves at (2.05).

Marseille’s shot at winning to nil is offered at (2.25) with LionsBet while the second half is poised to be the period to see most goals at odds of (2.00).
