Marseille vs Strasbourg Prediction & Match Preview

Marseille vs Strasbourg
French Coupe de la Ligue
Date: Wednesday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:05 UK / 21:05 CET
Venue: Orange Velodrome (Marseille).

Strasbourg just don’t have luck with the last 16 round draw in Coupe de la Ligue. They were stopped at this stage of the competition to the likes of PSG (2-4 loss at home) last season. They made an upset against Lille 2-0 at home in the first round this term, but the draw gave them the trip to Orange Velodrome and the clash with Olympique Marseille for a place in the quarter-final of the competition.

The timing is decent for Le Racing, though, as their rivals have just not been pulling up any trees of late. Marseille allowed as many as three goals in each of back-to-back defeats to Nantes and Apollon in past two matches. They lost three and drew one of past four outings across competitions conceding three or more goals in each of these three losses. Rudi Garcia’s men thus sit 6th in the Ligue 1 standings in spite of a generally fine home record of five wins, two draws and one loss in eight games so far.

Marseille vs Strasbourg: Head-to-head

Marseille were the dominant force in the most recent history of this match-up.

They won three and drew one of past four encounters with Le Racing.

The Phocians won 8, drew 3 and lost 1 of 12 home encounters with Strasbourg over the course of history.

Four of more goals were seen in four of past six head to head affairs.

Marseille vs Strasbourg: Prediction

We could really be in for another high-scoring thriller when these two likes are to come across each other in the League Cup. We already mentioned Marseille’s lack of meticulousness at the back in recent outings. Knowing Strasbourg played some high-scoring outings of late, we just have to go for the Over 3.5 goals FT at the sky-high 2.75 odds as the value bet.

Each of past four of Strasbourg’s matches saw goals scored at both ends as the Over 2.5 goals FT also has a tremendous value at 1.80. BTTS is priced up at 1.83.

Marseille vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips

  • Over 3.5 goals FT @ 2.75 (7/4)
  • BTTS @ 1.83 (5/6).
