Marseille vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 17th February 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrone (Marseille).
These two clubs are playing in midweek because they have extra games to play and had fallen behind.
Marseille are continuing their poor form as they could only draw 0-0 away to Bordeaux at the weekend. The club have no wins in their last five games and have only earned 2 points from their last 15 on offer.
Only weeks ago there seemed to be a chance for Marseille to try and challenge for the week so it is incredible to think that they have fallen 21 points behind the leaders.
Nice lost their 11th game of the season at the weekend and of more concern they have now lost 3 of their last four games. This time they lost against PSG but they played very well.
The defeat to PSG which was away from home was expected but Nice can be proud of themselves as they were losing the game and came back to 1-1 but the extra quality of PSG told in the end.
Nice have lost their last 2 games in a row coming into this one and it has been a tough set of fixtures for the club having to play both PSG and Marseille in a row and both away from home.
Marseille vs Nice Head to Head
- Marseille won this fixture last season 1-0.
- Marseille have won the last 6 league meetings between the sides.
- Nice haven’t won at Stade Velodrome since 2015.
Marseille vs Nice: Prediction
Essentially we have two teams who come into this game shot of confidence and this match will be a strange one as we do not see any motivation from either side.
The team that wins will be the one that has simply enjoyed playing a game of football over 90 minutes that is how far these two clubs have fallen currently.
Perhaps though Marseille has some advantage because even though Nice played very well against PSG they put a lot of effort into that game and this one may have come too soon for them. We can see fatigue come in.
This is why despite their poor form we will back Marseille for the win and of course they have a solid recent record over Nice also.
