Marseille vs Bordeaux
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 18th February 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
A rich and historic fixture will wrap up this weekend’s games in Ligue 1 when Marseille take on Bordeaux at Stade Velodrome.
Marseille are in 3rd place and are just 1 point behind Monaco. As it stands Marseille are good to qualify for the play off positions for the Champions League but they will have their hearts set on automatic qualifcation at the expense of Monaco.
In midweek Marseille were brilliant when they easily despatched Portuguese side Braga 3-0 in the 1st leg of the round of 32 in the Europa League. The team are also in good form gaining 21 points from their last 10 games, and they have only lost 1 game at home all season.
Bordeaux have been good in parts this season but not good enough to challenge for a European place. However they are playing their best football of the campaign where on form they would be 2nd in the league. The club has won their last 4 games and has won 3 in a row away from home, but Marseille is a big step up for them.
Marseille vs Bordeaux: Head to Head
- Home or away the last 5 meetings have all ended in a draw
- It’s been 11 games and 10 years since Bordeaux last won at Marseille
- 5 of the last 7 meetings has had the correct half time score at 0-0
Marseille vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Usually these games have few goals and many draws but with the form of both sides and the league in theory being won by PSG we can see more open play here and possibly experiencing a very good free flowing game of football. Only 5 times from the last 30 games have we seen 4 or more goals in this fixture but this could be the right time to see it and take value on it as one of our picks.
