Marseille vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 4th March 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
Marseille will be the favourites to overcome Nantes when the two teams come together on Sunday night at Stade Velodrome. Marseille are in 3rd place and have had a terrific season where they have found consistency after a few negative seasons. They currently hold a 5 point advantage over 4th place Lyon.
At home Marseille have won 30 of their 39 points losing just 1 game all season. They have won 9 of their 13 games and are almost averaging 3 goals a game. For Nantes this has been a tough couple of months and even manager Claudio Ranieri’s job might be on the line. This is ashame given how strong the club had been from September to the end of the year.
Nantes have won just 1 game this year and have slipped to 6th place. If they can find form they still have a good chance at European football if a top 4 side can win the Coupe de France. Last week felt like a new low for the club who lost at home to lowly Amiens by 1-0. Away from home they have won won 5 and lost 5 and have gained 8 points from their last 15 which isn’t a terrible statistic. However they have now gone their last two games without a win on the road.

Marseille vs Nantes: Prediction
We are going to take a risk bet with this match and opt for an away win at outstanding value for smaller stakes. Marseille have been very solid but have been looking very tired of late with a succession of league and Europa League matches. The club could take a loss and still be 3rd. A shock could be on the cards.
