Nantes vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 1 December 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Beaujoire – Louis Fonteneau.
Marseille are favorites going into this tie but the fact they have only won 4 of the last 20 away clashes against Nantes makes us look rather towards the home win or draw pick at the 1.57 odds. Anyways, the Under 2.5 goals FT is by far the best betting option for this particular tie.
Nantes vs Marseille Head-to-head
- The outfits have a win, a draw, and a defeat each in the last three head to head affairs.
- Both teams were on target in seven of the last eight head to head matches.
- Marseille only won 4 of the last 20 away games against Nantes.
Nantes vs Marseille Predictions & Analysis
Nantes will continue their tough schedule on Wednesday evening when they play host to Marseille in the 16th round of the Ligue 1.
Les Canaries have previously claimed just one point from the last two league ties against the likes of PSG and Lille.
They showed a great resistance on Saturday afternoon away at Lille, holding the defending champions to a 1-1 draw on the occasion.
Lille missed a late penalty following Fabio’s careless pulling for a red card. The right back will thus miss mid-week’s clash against Marseille.
The visitors should enter the game in higher spirits. They saw off Troyes 1-0 at Orange Velodrome as Pol Lirola converted Dmitri Payet’s delivery to make the difference.
Head coach Jorge Sampaoli can’t quite be thrilled with his team’s attacking performances of late, though.
Marseille only had four attempts on target in a narrow home win against the likes of Troyes.
Nantes are capable of keeping things quiet at the back and we feel Marseille could face troubles in an attempt to break them down on Wednesday.
Key Stats for Betting
