Marseille vs Lille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 21st April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
Marseille will be the odds on favourites to win this game and win they must if they want to keep a trail of Lyon. The two teams are batting for the final Champions League qualification place and they come into this weekend on the same points.
The home side are in good form with 10 points from their last 15 and have lost just one game in their last six which did come at the hands of Lyon, and could be all decisive come the end of the season. Marseille will be banking on their home form where they have won 32 points from 48 and lost just two times. However recent home form is poor and they have not won a game at Stade Velodrome for the last 3 matches.
Lille still have a great chance to survive and Toulouse is the key as they are the only club that realistically Lille could catch. Lille are just one point shy of them. Form has been very poor with no wins in 3 months either at home or away.
Marseille vs Lille: Head to Head
- Lille have not won at Marseille in the last 6 games
- Marseille beat Lille 1-0 away from home this season
- 4 out of the last 5 games played at Marseille has ended in under 2.5 goals
Marseille vs Lille: Prediction
Marseille should have enough to win this game but we have to remember that the club have a huge Europa League semi-final match coming after this one and player’s thoughts and who the manager decides to put out will be influenced by that game. We do expect Marseille to want to start this game quick and stun Lille.
Marseille vs Lille: Bet Tips
- Marseille to be winning at half time at 1.72
