Nantes vs Marseille
France- Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 20th February 2021
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade La Beaujoire.
Nantes finally won a game last weekend and it was against Angers away from home in the derby. Form wouldn’t have suggested it but the club went on to win 3-1.
It was 3 huge points for Nantes but they are still in 18th place and the threat of relegation is very real. The good news is that they are just one point from safety over Lorient and everything can change back this weekend.
Nantes home form is poor as they have only been able to win two times at home so far and their most dominant result has been the draw which has a percentage of coming out of 50%.
Marseille are sixth and they are hoping to try and qualify for the Europa League next season, that has to be their objective now. They have 37 points and are 15 points behind a possible Champions League place so that looks impossible for the club to achieve now.
Last weekend Marseille beat Nice 3-2 which was welcomed but they almost drew that game after being 2-0 up. It was their 10th victory of the season.
Away from home Marseille have won 5 and lost 3 but have no wins in their last 5 away games earning just 3 points from a possible 15.
Nantes vs Marseille: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 0-0.

Nantes vs Marseille: Prediction
Goals could be the order of the day and we expect to see a good match that is end to end and plenty of chances for both teams.
Marseille are trying to get their confidence back and go on a winning run and Nantes are trying to survive. This game could be very close and so maybe we should concentrate on the goals market instead.
One obvious stand out is to see both teams to score, the 80% return on that warrants that we pick it. We will also back Saif-Eddine Khaoui who has been in very good form for the away side lately to score during the match.
