Marseille hosts Dijon in round 31 of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Sunday, April 4th at Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
In the previous season, Olympique Marseille managed to win a ticket to the Champions League, and the experts evaluated the work of Villas-Boas in exalted words. But the Olympians failed the group stage of the main club tournament, as well as the first part of the national championship. It cost the Portuguese mentor the job. The team was taken over by experienced Jorge Sampaoli, and under his management, the team began to steadily gain points and has already climbed to 6th place in the standings. Marseille is gradually getting rid of high-paid players who overloaded the budget. But the team still has enough experienced footballers. The leaders of modern Marseille are such performers as Mandanda, Caleta-Car, Camara, Payet, Thauvin, and Milik.
Dijon is a modest French club that is completely failing the current season. The team occupies the last line in the standings with only 15 points scored. It has the worst defense of the championship and weak indicators of the attacking efficiency – the goal difference is 20-51. David Linares’s charges are on a streak of 10 consecutive defeats in the championship. Despite the terrible tournament performance, Dijon can boast of several skilled footballers in its squad. Assale, Chouiar, Panzo, Cheikh Diop, and Balde are not players of the level of the championship outsider. They may well strengthen any middle peasant in the First League.
One gets the impression that Dijon players have already resigned themselves to their fate and are simply playing out the season. The Owls look completely spiritless and don’t have any trump cards that may help them escape relegation. Marseille gained good momentum and is gradually moving to the top of the tournament standings. Sampaoli's charges seem to be the clear favorites of the upcoming confrontation.
