Marseille vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th December 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome.
Marseille are playing some of their best football in years and have won their last 5 games in a row. They are in 2nd place with 31 points and five points behind leaders PSG. The problem they have is that PSG have played a game less, so Marseille simply have to keep on winning games.
The truth is if the league is not possible for Marseille then 2nd place needs to be as that means instant qualification for next seasons Champions League which would be huge for the club.
Marseille have won their last 4 games in a row at home and this is a team who are in super confident mood. Their last home game ended in a 2-1 win over Brest and Marseille has lost just one home game all season which was back in August.
Bordeaux are doing very well to and come into this game in 4th place with 26 points. They have gone the last month without defeat and their last game was a fantastic 6-0 win over Nimes. The club have only lost 2 games away from home so far this season and their last two games away has finished in a draw.
Marseille vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Last season Marseille won this fixture 1-0.
- Bordeaux have not beaten Marseille at Stade Velodrome since 2008.
- In recent results there is a 90% chance to see this fixture end with under 2.5 goals.
Marseille vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Bordeaux have a very poor record here and Marseille are in brilliant form, so we are going to back the home side to get the win. If Marseille’s form does suffer, we think it will start to unravel away from home as they have made Stade Velodrome a fortress and are playing great football here.
We would be surprised to see under 2.5 goals here even though there is a 90% chance to see it, mostly because there are so many goals in this Marseille side.
With Bordeaux close to the top they will not just lie down here, and we feel that Sunday nights Ligue 1 game could be the most entertaining and exciting of all the Ligue 1 matches this weekend.
