With Lyon and Monaco facing tougher matches, Marseille will be eager to seize the opportunity to steal a march on their fellow top three contenders and should be able to put the visitors to the sword.
Strasbourg has recorded the odd impressive result this season, but have been limited in an attack on the road, averaging less than a goal per match. Even if they can find the back of the net here, Marseille will likely have too much for them.
