Our football match prediction:
Sion and Marseille face each other in a friendly game on Wednesday evening. Sion are high on confidence ahead of the football match against Rudi Garcia’s charges as they outplayed fellow Swiss outfits Chiasso and Servette in previous two warm-up games, but the game against OM will be anything but a walk in the park for Sebastien Fournier’s troops. Sion kick off their Swiss Super League campaign in July, meaning that coach Fournier is likely to field the best possible side against Marseille. The Ligue 1 outfit have big ambitions for the upcoming season and they want to prepare in the best possible way for their opener against Dijon (August 5). Dimitri Payet will be the man to watch in the away team and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on the French side. Sion and Marseille shared the spoils in their previous two meetings in friendly games, but we predict that OM will emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s match.
