Following their takeover in the summer and the subsequent appointment of Patrick Vieira, Strasbourg have badly struggled throughout the campaign and are languishing down towards the very bottom end of the table. Le Racing begin the weekend sitting just above the bottom three and the danger zone in Ligue 1.
The home team come into this on the back of a goalless draw at home to fellow strugglers, Clermont, in their most recent outing, a few weeks ago before the November international break. They have managed just three victories in their opening 11 matches so far this season with just nine goals scored in those games.
Olympique de Marseille have had another off-field revolution and it hasn’t benefitted them on the pitch so far this season as they sit in the bottom-half of the table, under second manager of the season Gennaro Gattuso. The visitors were beaten by a goal to nil by Lens a couple of weeks ago, continuing their poor form.
Marseille have also managed just three wins in their opening 11 matches after what had been a relatively bright start to the season before their usual implosion and surprise sacking of Marcelino. They have also managed just 12 goals in nine games, despite signing the likes of Iliman Ndiaye, Ismaila Sarr and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang over the summer.

These are two of the underwhelming and underperforming sides in France’s top-flight. Despite the fact that Strasbourg are a lot closer to the relegation places, the home team are only a point behind Marseille ahead of this weekend and these are two evenly matched sides. They are evenly matched, both struggling below their pre-season expectations and they have combined for just 21 goals so far this season. Given that, a low-scoring encounter with under 3.5 goals is to be expected on Saturday afternoon.
BETTING TIP: UNDER 3.5 GOALS
