Caen Prediction

Caen occupy a lowly position in Ligue 1 of 16th place and they’re just one point above the relegation play-off spot as they head into this important home clash with Marseille, having registered just one win from their last 12 matches overall in Ligue 1.

That rare win came in a 2-1 home win over Toulouse but they’ve picked up just three wins all season in the French top flight and look set to have their work cut out on Sunday afternoon, even though they hold home advantage at their Stade Michel d’Ornano.

Caen possess an ordinary home record of 2-4-4 11/14 which includes losing four of their last five on home turf and just one win to show for their efforts; defeats to Rennes, Monaco, Nimes and Lille have left the hosts in the bottom half of the division and a tough challenge against Marseille.

In addition, Caen have kept just 2 clean sheets at home all season and their defence is sure to be tested again this afternoon.


Key-Facts – Caen v Marseille

  • Caen have lost 4 of their last 5 at home in Ligue 1
  • Caen have kept just 2 clean sheets at home all season
  • Marseille have failed to score in just 2 of their 10 away matches


Marseille Prediction

Marseille currently sit in a disappointing 9th place in the French top flight having also endured a very ordinary period of results as the visitors are without a win from their last five matches which includes defeats to Nantes and 3rd placed Saint-Etienne, but they have picked up points with draws against Reims, Angers and Monaco which will give them some belief of getting a result of sorts for the visitors here.

Marseille have managed two wins on their travels from their last six matches which were wins at 7th placed Nice and Amiens but have suffered defeats at Montpellier, Nantes and Saint-Etienne – but it should be noted that two of these three recent losses were against teams in the top six of Ligue 1.

Another thing in Marseille’s favour is that they’ve failed to score in just 2 of their 10 away matches to date amidst an overall record of 3-1-6 14/22, and the likes of midfielder Payet (4 goals) and forward Thauvin (11 goals) should ensure the visitors get something from this clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

Caen have struggled for results lately, and while Marseille haven’t done much better, the visitors look the more likely here.
