ASF Andrezieux and Olympique de Marseille will face-off at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Etienne, with Marseille looking to secure their place in the Coupe de France round of 32.
Andrezieux are the lower-league outfit that currently competes in the Championnat National 2, the French fourth-tier competition. Andrezieux have won their last three competitive outings, including the one against Annecy-le-Vieux in the Coupe de France. What’s more, Stephane Basson’s players have secured seven triumphs in the previous nine games in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in five of those wins. However, Andrezieux will be big underdogs in this encounter considering it will be their first competitive match against some top-tier side. Still, having managed to hit the back of the net in each of their last 13 matches in all competitions, Andrezieux may have their chance to score against a vulnerable Marseille backline.
Meanwhile, the Phocaeans are going through a dreadful spell that has seen them failed to secure a victory in six consecutive encounters across all competitions (D2, L4). The Olympians are underperforming away from home lately, having lost four of their last six road meetings. Rudi Garcia hopes his players can bring their three-game winless road run to an end (D1, L2) during which his team conceded eight while scored three goals. Also, Marseille’s awful defensive displays have seen them allow over 2.5 goals per match in three of their previous six outings, keeping a clean sheet just once in the process. The Olympians have notched exactly one goal in their last three competitive clashes, with each of them ending with both teams scored.
