Jorge Sampaoli’s Marseille and Franck Haise’s Lens go head-to-head at the Stade Velodrome in Ligue 1 action on Sunday night. The Phocaeans have made a superb start to their league season, winning four and drawing two of six. However, after a goalless draw with Angers in midweek, Sampaoli’s side will be gunning for all three points on home turf at the weekend. Read on for the latest betting odds and tips for this intriguing Ligue 1 clash.

Marseille Preview – Sampaoli’s side to strike back with a home win?

Jorge Sampaoli’s Marseille have made a great start to their Ligue 1 campaign. So far, the Olympians have won four and drawn two of their last six league fixtures. They are currently in second place behind runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite their unbeaten start, Marseille could do with a win after drawing a blank at Angers in midweek. Prior to that, the Phocaeans has secured a trio of Ligue 1 victories over Saint Etienne, Monaco and Rennes.

Our betting prediction:
Marseille to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1008 GMT, Saturday 25 September)

Marseille have collected seven points from their opening three Ligue 1 games at the Velodrome this season, drawing with Bordeaux before beating Saint Etienne and Rennes. The hosts should secure another three points on their own patch this weekend, and they are the clear favourites with the bookies at 8/11.

Lens Preview – Can the Blood and Gold avoid a second straight loss?

Lens have also made a good start to their league season. Franck Haise’s side are sitting pretty in fourth spot at present, winning three, drawing three and losing one of their opening seven fixtures.

The Blood and Gold were undefeated in their opening six games of the 2021-22 Ligue 1 season, picking up three wins and drawing three times. Unfortunately for Lens, they fell to their first defeat of the campaign in midweek, narrowly losing at home to Strasbourg.

Haise’s troops would love to bounce back at the first time of asking, but getting anything from Sunday’s trip to the Stade Velodrome will be a tall order for Lens. Still, the away win is tempting at 4/1.


Marseille vs Lens Betting Advice

Lens enjoyed success in their two meetings with Marseille last season. They battled to a 2-2 draw at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in February, coming from two goals down to snatch a point.

Earlier in the season at the Velodrome, Simon Banza’s second-half goal gave Lens a 1-0 away victory. Marseille won the previous four before last season’s games, scoring 11 and shipping one in the process.


Key Facts – Marseille vs Lens Betting Tip

  • Marseille are unbeaten in six league games so far (four wins, two draws)
  • Lens suffered their first Ligue 1 defeat of the season last time out
  • Lens picked up four points from the two league meetings last term


Lens will not be an easy nut to crack, but Marseille should bounce back from the midweek stalemate with three points in front of their home fans on Sunday. There is good value in 7/4 for Marseille to be winning at half time and full time.

Dimitri Payet has helped himself to three league goals this season, scoring twice in Marseille’s 3-2 victory over Montpellier in game one. We fancy the former West Ham United man to score first in this one at 11/2.
