Bordeaux Prediction

Bordeaux are currently experiencing a frustrating period of their season having gained just one win in Ligue 1 from their last 10 matches overall, which was a 2-1 home win against Toulouse, but five defeats within this sequence has prevented the hosts from lifting themselves up into the top half of Ligue 1.

Losses to Strasbourg, Marseille and PSG (all away from home) along with defeats to Nantes and Montpellier mean that the hosts find themselves in a bit of a rut ahead of this Friday night encounter with Marseille, but back on home turf, the hosts have suffered just one defeat from their last nine matches which is a solid sequence of results.

Bordeaux possess a home record of 6-6-3 20/16 but includes defeats to Strasbourg, Nice and Montpellier who all sit in the top half of Ligue 1, and the visit of 5th placed Marseille could provide the hosts with another tough challenge on Friday night.

Forward Kamano (9 goals) looks Bordeaux’s best chances of scoring in this encounter, but they’ve failed to score in 4 of their 15 home matches to date and goals could once again be at a premium in this clash.


Key-Facts – Bordeaux v Marseille

  • Bordeaux have won just 1 of their last 10 matches overall in Ligue 1
  • Marseille have lost just 1 of their last 8 matches overall in Ligue 1
  • Marseille have scored in 13 of their 15 away matches to date


Marseille Prediction

5th placed Marseille could move themselves into the Europa League spot if they manage to take all three points at Bordeaux on Friday night as they trail 4th placed Saint-Etienne by just a single point ahead of this weekend’s action.

Overall, Marseille have lost just once in their last eight matches in the French top flight which was a heavy 3-1 loss away at the Ligue 1 runaway leaders, PSG, but recent wins over Saint-Etienne and Nice have kept the visitors in the hunt for a top four finish.

However, mixed results away from home amidst an overall away record which stands at 5-2-8 20/29 mean that Marseille are far from guaranteed all three points in this clash as they’ve recorded wins at Caen and Dijon but have also lost at Saint-Etienne, Reims and PSG.

The major thing in Marseille’s favour though is that they’ve scored in 13 of their 15 away matches to date and with the likes of goalscoring midfielders Payet and Sanson (4 goals apiece) along with forwards Thauvin (13 goals), Balotelli (7 goals) and Germain (5 goals), the visitors should at the very least avoid defeat here.

Betting Tips Verdict

There have been a number of draws where Bordeaux are concerned at home, so backing Marseille with the draw no bet option here looks the safer play.
