Where does Troyes sit in Ligue 1 on Sunday?
Sunday sees Troyes play host to Marseille in a Ligue 1 match at the Stade de I’Aube. Troyes are currently hovering just above the drop zone in 17th, while Marseille are the opposite, flying high in second place.
Are Marseille Ligue 1’s away day specialists?
A four-point chasm separates second-placed Marseille from Strasbourg in fourth despite their shock home loss last week, and Les Olympiens can boast the tag of away day specialists having won six of their last seven Ligue 1 encounters away from home.
Are Marseille the best team in the division behind PSG?
Marseille have clearly been the best team in the division only behind PSG since November; however, the club has suffered a few significant losses in recent games, which has prevented them from closing down on the gap with PSG in the title race.
Can Irles engineer a shock win at Troyes?
After a relatively solid autumnal period at the Stade de l’Aube, Troyes are now winless at home in five in all competitions and have failed to score in each of their last two, so Irles will need no less than a miracle to engineer a shock win here.

In the latest episode of crowd troubles in the French top flight, Marseille’s clash with Lyon last weekend was brought to an abrupt end, when midfielder Dimitri Payet was the target of a water bottle thrown from the stands after just four minutes, causing the match to be abandoned.
Marseille should have a full squad to pick from, following the returns of Leonardo Balerdi and Cengiz Under from a suspension and an injury respectively.
We say: Marseille 2-1 Troyes
Marseille will be wounded from a heavy defeat in midweek, but they should still have enough quality to get over the line on Sunday.
