Bordeaux vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 2nd February 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut Atlantique.

The final game of the weekend in Ligue 1 will see Bordeaux take on Marseille.

Marseille could be 13 points behind PSG when this game takes place and with Rennes winning on Friday night in a five goal thriller, they are just 2 points behind, so a win is needed.

As for Bordeaux they are in 10th place and maybe eyeing a Europa League position as the league is so close in the top half. They beat Nantes last weekend which was a great result for the club as they had lost 4 games in a row prior to that.

Home form is not good with just 40% of games won here and they would place 16th in the league on home matches alone.

Marseille have been brilliant with no losses in 10 games and they have won 26 out of 30 points in that time. Still they are no match for PSG, but they need to finish 2nd to automatically qualify for next seasons Champions League.

Bordeaux vs Marseille: Head to Head

  • Last season Bordeaux won this game 2-0.
  • Marseille have not won at Bordeaux since 2008.
  • There is a 90% chance to see under 2.5 goals.

Bordeaux vs Marseille: Prediction

Marseille have won 50% of their away games this season and what has been interesting is that they come into this game having been undefeated in their last four.

Indeed, their last loss on the road was against PSG and that was back in October. This is a game full of draws and Marseille for one reason or another do have a poor record here, this is why we are going to back the handicap on Bordeaux to come through here and that will help us if the game ends in yet another draw.

The pressure is certainly on Marseille and sometimes we have seen them not play to their full potential because of it. Bordeaux have little to lose and may end up looking like the more relaxed team.

Bordeaux vs Marseille: Bet Tips

  • Bordeaux to beat Marseille with a +1 goal start at 1.62 (8/13)
