The club are in 6th place and already 11 points behind leaders PSG. Their goal this season won’t be to win the league but finish in a Champions League position and they are on course to do well provided they keep their home form up.

They have won 3 of their 4 matches at home and are unbeaten. What has been encouraging is that there are goals in this team and they have 13 so far at home, only PSG have more.

Caen are in 11th place but if they pulled off a win here they would join Marseille on the same points and that just shows how close the league is this season. They have decent form in that they have lost just 1 game in their past 5 but their results are dogged with draws. Away from home they have won just 1 game from four which came against Dijon.

Marseille vs Caen: Head to Head

  • Last season Marseille won this fixture 5-0.

Marseille vs Caen: Prediction

Out of all of the Ligue 1 games this weekend this match looks nailed on for a home win. Marseille have been solid, fluid and professional at home and are averaging 3 goals a game at Stade Velodrome.

However Marseille are as low as 1.30 (1/3) so we will take them to win but to start with a handicap. We can’t ignore Florian Thauvin who has been in spectacular form and we will back him to score in this game.

Marseille vs Caen: Bet Tips

  • Marseille to win with a -1 goal handicap start at 1.91 (10/11)
  • Anytime goal-scorer Florian Thauvin (Marseille) at 1.91 (10/11).
