Strasbourg Prediction

Strasbourg sit mid-table in Ligue 1 and have been in steady form of late as they’ve suffered just one defeat out of their last seven matches, but conversely, the hosts have also picked up just 1 win out of their last 12 matches overall.

These last 12 matches have seen Strasbourg involved in 7 draws with 5 of these 7 stalemates ending up with both teams scoring. Strasbourg’s one win during this sequence was a 4-0 home win against Reims, and the hosts have lost just twice in their last 10 matches at their Stade de la Meinau.

An overall home record of 6-7-4 30/22 includes recent wins gained over Nice, Bordeaux and the aforementioned Reims, and 9 of their 17 home matches have seen Strasbourg score 2 goals or more.

Overall, the hosts have failed to score just once out of their 17 home matches to date, and with the likes of midfielders Goncalves and Thomasson (5 goals apiece), along with the forward trio of Mothiba, Ajorque and Da Costa (8 goals apiece), Strasbourg look likely to hit the back of the net again on Friday night.

Marseille Prediction

Although Marseille occupy 6th place in Ligue 1, the visitors have produced mixed results in recent weeks which have seen them lose ground on the race for one of the European positions come the end of the season.

Back-to-back wins against Nimes and Guingamp have been offset by defeats to PSG, Bordeaux and Nantes, while also gaining just a draw in a 2-2 stalemate at home with Angers. As you can see, recent form hasn’t been entirely convincing of late, and the same theme of inconsistency continues when looking at their results away from home.

Just 3 away wins from their last 10 matches on their travels is below-par for a team that’s considered to still be in the frame for a top four finish, but although they’ve picked up wins at Caen, Dijon and Guingamp, each of these teams currently occupy a place in the bottom three of Ligue 1.

It’s perhaps no surprise then, that Marseille possess an average looking away record which stands at 6-2-9 23/32 but although they can’t be counted on for the straight win here, the visitors are capable of scoring goals on their travels.

Marseille have scored in 14 of their 17 away matches so far this season, while 12 of these 17 away matches have seen both teams score as well, and with the likes of midfield trio Sanson, Ocampos and Payet (4 goals each) along with forwards Thauvin (13 goals), Balotelli (8 goals) and Germain (7 goals) in their attacking personnel, Marseille should also score tonight.


Key-Facts – Strasbourg v Marseille

  • Strasbourg have scored in 16 of their 17 home matches to date in Ligue 1
  • Marseille have scored in 14 of their last 17 away matches in Ligue 1

Betting Tips Verdict

Both Strasbourg and Marseille carry serious goal threats so we should see both hit the back of the net on Friday night.
