Marseille vs Lille Match Preview

Home » Marseille vs Lille Match Preview

Marseille would welcome Lille for this league game looking for their first domestic win in three games, while the visitors would be looking to cause more problems for Andre Villas-Boas’ side.

Marseille are currently 7th on the league table, but they are just 2 points off the top four as they look to return to the Champions League by the end of this campaign.

Andre Villas-Boas side has been one of the most inconsistent sides in France this season and that continued in the past week. They were beaten 4-0 by PSG before losing 2-1 to AS Monaco in the French Cup, with just 3 points separating them from the top 3, they would be keen to get back to winning here.

Lille surprised many teams when the qualified for the Champions League at the end of last season, but they have kept up their level of performance to remain inside the top 3 ahead of this game.

The visitors come here after trashing Bordeaux 3-0 at home on Saturday and have had the whole week to prepare for this game. That win against Bordeaux was their 5th from 11 leagues this season and it would have boosted their confidence ahead of their visit to OM.

Team News

Marseille would be without the services of Florian Thauvin who has been injured since September, while Hiroki Sakai remains suspended for this game.

Timothy Weah is the only injury problems that Lille have ahead of this game and the American has already missed 12 games so he won’t be missed in this one.

Head to Head

Marseille and Lille have played each other 40 times before now. The home side has a better h2h record in those game after winning 19 and losing 12 of them.

After a period of dominance for Marseille, Lille has been the dominant side in recent games. The visitors won both h2h games last season but those are their only wins in the last 8 h2h between them.

Team form

Marseille has been inconsistent for the most part this season, but they are not on their best run of form at the moment. They were beaten 4-0 by PSG at the weekend to stay 7th on the league table.

Betting Preview

Marseille brought in Villas-Boas to help them return to the Champions League next season, but the former Jose Mourinho’s protege is still struggling to get them firing as much as he would have loved.

They are currently 7th on the league table and have won just two games at home all season and so their return to the Stade Velodrome against this impressive Lille side won’t inspire much confidence from the home support.

All their home games this season have ended in Under 2.5 Goals scored as they seem to focus on defensive solidity when they play at home.

Lille are an exciting young team and have been very impressive since the start of last season. They remain 3rd on the league table and would be looking for a second consecutive win here.

They haven’t had much joy on the road, but have lost just one of their last 3 league games on the road. Just one of those games has also ended in over 2.5 Goals.

With Marseille struggling at home and Lille also being Cautious on the road, this game looks like another low scoring affair for both side and a 1-1 draw looks a perfect pick.

Victor Osimhen has scored 7 goals in 11 league starts this season and is a good pick for anytime goalscorer as well.

SUGGESTED BETS

Under 2.5 Goals @ 4/5

Marseille 1-1 Lille @ 5/1
