FC Basel v Olympique Marseille: Round of 16 Leg Two - UEFA Europa Conference League
Marseille will meet Annecy in the Coupe de France on Wednesday

Marseille will entertain second-tier side Annecy at the Stade Vélodrome in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France on Wednesday.

The hosts overcame arch-rivals Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at home in the previous round thanks to goals from Alexis Sánchez and Ruslan Malinovskyi. They failed to continue that form in Ligue 1 when the two teams met on Sunday as they fell to a 3-0 away defeat.

Annecy qualified for the quarter-finals with a 6-5 win on penalties against Paris FC. Interestingly, they also recorded a win on penalties in the round of 32 over Belfort, with the game also ending in a 1-1 draw during regular time.

They suffered a 5-1 hammering against Sochaux in Ligue 2 on Saturday and will be looking to produce a better display in this match.

Marseille vs Annecy Prediction

Les Phocéens overcame PSG in their previous round and will be buoyed by that win. They have the upper hand in terms of squad quality and home advantage should also come in handy in this match.

The visitors have scored in each of their games in all competitions in 2023 and are expected to find the back of the net in this match. Nonetheless, they have not faced an opponent of the hosts' caliber in the competition thus far and we back Marseille to come out victorious.
