Marseille vs Nantes
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd February 2020
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille)
Marseille look favourites to finish as runners up now and that would mean automatic qualification for the Champions League. The club beat Lille 2-1 away inflicting only Lille’s second defeat at home of the season and as a result they have moved 11 points clear of 3rd placed Rennes.
It was a great weekend for Marseille who also saw PSG drop two points as they drew 4-4 with Amiens but they are still 10 points behind the league leaders.
The club come into this game having won their last three matches in a row and at home they have only lost one game this season and will start as favourites.
Nantes are down in 12th place with 34 points but it only takes a couple of wins in this league to be mixing with a possible European position. They drew against Metz 0-0 in their last game and that means the club have not won a match in their last five matches.
Away from home Nantes have lost 50% of their games and their last trip ended 3-3 against Dijon.
Marseille vs Nantes: Head to Head

Marseille vs Nantes Prediction
We are very confident that Marseille can end their wait to win at home against Nantes. Here is a team who are very focused to win every game and they know that the league title isn’t quite over just yet.
But Marseille are a club who are not losing games now and they have built up a good reputation for that.
We will also back both teams to score and that is a common theme in these games, but our main pick will most certainly be the home win.
