Mixing tall fescue seed with Marathon 1 sod

I saw Vigoro brand tall fescue seed at home depot.
It's cheaper by weight than genuine Marathon seed.

I have patchy dead areas in my Marathon 1 lawn.

Will this tall fescue seed blend well with marathon 1 in terms of COLOR?

Marathon 1 is relatively dark green.

I just don't want new fescue to differ too much in color and stand out.

More likely to get an informative answer over on the Lawn forum here as that is their focus.
