Marseille Prediction

Marseille have dropped down the league standings in Ligue 1 to 10th place ahead of Tuesday night’s encounter against Bordeaux following recent back-to-back defeats to Lille and Reims, and along with another recent loss to Saint-Etienne, this means the hosts have lost three of their last four matches overall.

Indeed, Marseille have managed to achieve just one win from their last eight matches overall in Ligue 1 as the wheels are threatening to fall off, but they still possess a fairly good recored at home of 5-3-2 19/9 which includes five clean sheets.

Let’s also consider Marseille’s two defeats at home so far this season; they were losses to PSG and Lille who sit top and second respectively in the French top flight, while wins over Toulouse, Guingamp, Strasbourg, Caen and Dijon has seen the hosts win four of these five against bottom half opposition – with 12th placed Bordeaux also in this category.


Key-Facts – Marseille v Bordeaux

  • 4 of Marseille’s 5 home wins have been against bottom half opposition
  • Marseille have kept 5 clean sheets in their 10 home matches to date
  • Bordeaux have won just 1 of their last 7 away matches in Ligue 1


Bordeaux Prediction

Bordeaux sit in 12th place in Ligue 1 and is a fair reflection of their season so far this campaign as the visitors have struggled for any kind of consistency this term. Recent results have also reflected this with wins against Angers and Dijon but also falling to defeats to Nice and Strasbourg, both of which were away from home.

Most of Bordeaux’s modest success has been at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique where they’ve posted 5 of their 7 league wins this season, and have also lost just twice on home turf too. Away from home though paints a very different picture as Bordeaux have recorded just one win from their last seven matches on their travels which was a 2-1 win at 13th placed Angers.

An away record of 2-3-5 7/11 underlines the problems the visitors have had in simply scoring goals and they’l be up against a fairly solid defensive unit in the shape of Marseille in this clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

As ordinary as Marseille have been in recent times, the hosts should at least avoid defeat here.
