Lille vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 3rd March 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
There was disappointment at the weekend for league leaders Lille as they dropped 2 points at home in a 1-1 draw with lowly Strasbourg. However the club were losing 1-0 on the 86th minute so would have been relived in the end to at least claim a point.
The good news also is that Lille stay top of the league because Lyon could only draw but PSG did win, and the champions are now just 2 points behind and looming nearer.
Lille will be the favourites to win this game but of course their opposition are no pushovers and this could make for a fascinating contest.
Marseille were expected to lose against Lyon at the weekend but in fact the club dug deep and came out with a 1-1 draw which keeps their hopes of Europa League football alive.
The away side are unbeaten in their last 4 games albeit 3 of those has finished in draws. On the road it’s more draws and Marseille have drawn their last 3 in a row with their last away game ending 1-1 against Nantes.

Lille vs Marseille: Prediction
It’s true that Lille have dropped some points that we wouldn’t expect lately and it has let PSG right back into the league title chase.
However Lille has one of the best home records in the league and they should have enough to see off Marseille. Plus there is the chance of course that Marseille performing well here is good news for their arch rivals PSG and they will not want to help them win yet another league.
Lille will need to be focused in a game that could become quite heated but they are odds on but a decent price and that choice looks tempting to back them here.
