Marseille Preview – Can Marseille land another win?

Marseille looked very good last weekend as they picked up a victory over Montpellier last weekend.

That happened away from home and they looked potent in attack.

Their defence will likely tighten up as things tick along, especially at home.

In the match outright for football betting on Sunday, Marseille are 8/15 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT August 13th 2021).

Last season, Marseille landed a top five finish in a good campaign.

On home turf last season, Marseille took a W10 D5 L4 record.

They were nowhere near as potent as that out on the road.

There is big head to head form from them at home against Bordeaux.

It’s currently a 15-match undefeated run of home form that Marseille are on against Bordeaux.

They look like a good pick to continue that.

Our betting prediction:
Over 3.5 goals

* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT August 13th 2021)


In their final six home games of last season’s Ligue 1 campaign, Marseille won five of those matches.

There’s a decent chance that the goals will flow from.

Marseille have scored at least two goals in each of their last three home games against Bordeaux in all competitions.

Over 3.5 goals for football betting may be something to consider at 11/5* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT August 13th 2021).

There have been victories by a 3-1 scoreline for Marseille in their last two against Bordeaux.


Bordeaux Preview – Visitors may come up short

Bordeaux were left empty-handed last weekend in the opening game of the new season.

That was a 2-0 home defeat against the newly promoted Clermont.

This looks like being a season of big struggles all around for them.

They claimed a mid-table finish last season in the league, but have reported financial issues.

Bordeaux took a W6 D2 L11 record on the road last season.

In that run, they lost six of their eight games played against the top-eight finishers.

Bordeaux conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per away game.

In the match outright, the away win is currently at a big quote of 5/1 for football betting* (odds recorded 21:12 GMT August 13th 2021).
